Breakfast Potatoes

I honestly believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives us a boost of energy and if you can get in a good breakfast, then your mood is more likely to stay pretty chill throughout the day. Fingers crossed. And I'm one person who doesn't want to eat the same thing over and over again. I need that variation. So I am always trying to come up with more breakfast ideas.

I feel that eggs play an important part in the diet and the best time to incorporate them into your diet is first thing in the morning. Eggs are a great source of protein which is necessary for children and adults to grow and repair. I will try to get the kids to eat eggs every morning, but on the days they don't want to have eggs, this is a great alternative. No one can say no to potatoes, right? Serve these Breakfast Potatoes with fried eggs, sausages and even beans. It's filling and nutritious.

Preparation Time 40 minutes- which includes a 30 minute soak time

Cook Time 25 minutes

Serves 6


2 tablespoon oil

1 tablespoon butter

4 large/ 6 medium potatoes- cut into 1/2 inch cubes. Peeling depends on your preference.

1 onion- diced

1 green pepper- diced

2 teaspoons parsley- chopped

3 cloves of garlic- minced

Salt and pepper to taste.

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/4 cup grated parmesan


  1. Soak the potatoes for 30 minutes in ice water. This will remove the starch and will ensure that we get the crispiest potatoes.

  2. Drain the water then pat them dry with paper towels.

  3. Preheat the oil and butter in a pan on a medium heat. Add the potatoes and mix them into the oil and butter. Place the lid on top of the pan and allow the potatoes to cook on a medium heat for 10 minutes.

  4. Remove the lid, increase the heat to a medium high.

  5. Add the green pepper and onions. Cook for 15 minutes until golden.

  6. Add the parsley, paprika, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Adjust the seasoning once more and top with parmesan.
