There ’ south something about eating some absolutely cooked potatoes that settles my digest in the good morning. Is that weird ? I think getting older is making me eldritch !

Make your breakfast potatoes on the stove top with some help.

You can ’ t just toss some potatoes into a hot frying pan and expect them to cook evenly – soft and velvet on the inside and perfectly crisp on the outside. They need a little help. The easiest way to get them going is the microwave. Simply rinse your cube potatoes under some coldness urine, put them in a bowl and cover them with fictile wind ( to seal in the moisture ). They merely take a few minutes on high power to be ready for the hot frying pan .

Are breakfast potatoes healthy?

Yes. If you use a non-stick frying pan the cube potatoes take a very modest sum of vegetable petroleum and butter to develop their crisp outside. Depending on what type of diet you are following, white potatoes may be off-limits. But potatoes are humble in calories and contain a lot of nutrients .

Can you freeze breakfast potatoes?

technically you can but I ’ thousand kind of the opinion of why would you want to ? If you freeze the fudge breakfast potatoes you then have to thaw them and re-crisp them in the frying pan when you want to eat them. That ’ s about as much function vitamin a fair making them fresh when you want them in the first rate. This recipe is meant to be immediate so my recommendation is to not freeze them .

Kitchen Tips:

  • I used Yukon Gold potatoes when testing this recipe. The texture of them was amazing. Russets and red skinned potatoes will work too.
  • I use a sharp knife like this one to peel and chop my potatoes.
  • If you are looking for really good non-stick skillets, I highly recommend these.
  • Season your potatoes however you want – I like salt, black pepper and a little smoked paprika.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium Yukon Gold potatoes peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp bootleg capsicum
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika

Instructions

  • Rinse the potatoes under cold water and drain. Place them in a microwave safe bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap.

  • Microwave the potatoes for 4 – 6 minutes on high power, stirring halfway through cooking time. You want them to be starting to soften but not so soft that they will fall apart in the skillet.

  • Heat a non-stick skillet (it must be non-stick) over medium heat. Add the oil and butter. 

  • Once the butter has melted, add the potatoes. Cook without stirring for 3 – 4 minutes. Stir the potatoes and add the seasonings. 

  • Continue to cook the potatoes until they have browned. Serve immediately.
