Whenever it’s time for me to put together my #EatSeasonal post, I always look to Becky’s seasonal produce page for inspiration.  Sometimes I’m feeling adventurous and I want to use as much produce as I can, and other times I’m feeling a little lazy and want something really easy: cue these Easy Crispy Breakfast Potatoes!

Today I was feeling extra lazy and didn’t even want to go to the store.  I wanted to make a recipe using all ingredients that I already had in the house, I wanted it to be easy and I wanted it to be something Eli could enjoy too.

These Easy Crispy Breakfast Potatoes checked off all those boxes.  And, another thing that’s great about them is that they’re really versatile so I can use the leftovers in other recipes, like these delicious tacos!

Potatoes are one of my favorite breakfast side dishes so I love boiling a huge batch of potatoes and just having them on hand so I can easily fry them up with some veggies.  You can also bulk them up with some beans, tofu or tempeh and make a more substantial breakfast potato hash :)

An easy and delicious breakfast side dish!


  • 6-7 cups chopped potatoes, I used 6 small potatoes
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 small red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 small red onion, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Add diced potatoes to a large pot and cover with cold water.  Bring to a boil and cook potatoes until fork tender, about 30 minutes.  This step can be done up to 3 day in advance.
  2. Heat a large pan over medium heat and add olive oil, red pepper, onion, potatoes and salt and pepper.  Mix until everything is combined and then cover with a lid and cook for about 25-30 minutes, flipping potatoes every 5 minutes.  You want them to get a nice golden brown crust on the bottom before each flip.  Season with extra salt and pepper, if desired.

    I’ve always loved potatoes but my obsession has reached a new high lately! Probably because our farmers market has had them for a few weeks and they have been SO fresh and delicious. I need to serve them up for breakfast with this recipe!

    I love potatoes, and when I’m craving them (which is often!) there’s no substitute. Breakfast potatoes with peppers are of my favorite ways to enjoy them and these extra crispy ones look delicious Izzy!
