People usually make toast to accompany their eggs, bacon or sausage for their breakfast meal if they are in the mood for a fry-up. Potatoes can be a good alternative side dish if you are tired of having bread as your morning starch.
Hash browns are delicious to make, but can be time-consuming if you prefer to make your breakfast meals from scratch. There is very little prep work to make pan-fried potatoes. If you have never made them before, this is a simple recipe to use.
- Russet potatoes (usually count one potato per person)
- Ground black pepper (cayenne or crushed red pepper can be used if you prefer their hotness)
- Garlic powder
- Onion (optional)
- Olive oil
Wash the potatoes; if you prefer, you can leave the skin on or peel them off. Dry the potatoes and cut them into cubes. Cut the onion in half and slice it into small strips.
Pour about a tablespoon of olive oil into a skillet or non-stick frying pan. Turn the stove on to a low-medium range. Place the potatoes into the skillet and coat them with the oil.
If you need to add a little more oil during the cooking process, that is fine since you don’t want the bottom of the pan to dry up. Add in the salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder; seasoned to taste.
Using a spatula, gently stir the potatoes around so they can be evenly cooked. Add in the onion slices approximately 10 minutes after the potatoes have been cooking. Cook the potatoes and onions for another 10 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
