How to Make Pan Fried Breakfast Potatoes
Hearty breakfasts don’t have to take much time. They just have taste good. So if you love skillet potatoes like I do, then you’ll love this easy recipe for pan fried breakfast potatoes. The perfect addition to any hearty breakfast every time.
Here’s how to make it:
Start by cutting up a yellow pepper and a red onion into small pieces.
Then finely chop up some dill.
Next, peel, slice and cube potatoes and put them in water to keep them from browning.
To a hot skillet fry pan, add a bit of oil and a couple of tablespoons of butter. Once the butter has melted, drain the potatoes well, then add them along with the onions, peppers, and onions.
Then fry everything on medium heat for 10 minutes until cooked through.
If you want crispy potatoes, cook them for a minute or two longer. Or, if you want them al dente, stop frying at this point.
Finally, it’s always best to add the dill at the last minute for maximum flavor. Just stir it through and serve it hot. That’s it!
