Breakfast potatoes

I am a very picky person when it comes to breakfast. Cereal? Not the biggest fan. Warm and salty potatoes? Love them.
I found a recipe online, but then changed a bunch of stuff.
Enjoy :-)


  • 3 medium Russet potatoes
  • 1.5 tsp all-purpose seasoning
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • Any additional seasonings you want. 
  • Onions (optional)
The above spice measurements are estimates. It is all dependent on your own taste.

  1. Wash potatoes.
  2. Cut up potatoes into small cubes. (as seen above)
  3. Boil potatoes for 20-25 minutes, or until softened. They need to be soft, but not soft enough that they are mashed potatoes.
  4. Remove from heat and place in a colander.
  5. Add spices and toss gently. 
  6. Heat up some butter or oil in a skillet. 
  7. At this point, if you want to have onions, saute the onions.
  8. Add potatoes and saute for around 5 minutes or until golden. Be very gently when flipping over the potatoes.
  9. When golden take off heat and enjoyyyy.

The picture below is a breakfast we had at home a few weeks back. We had the potatoes, vegetables, foul (fava beans), labne (strained yogurt). and hummus.
Would anyone want to see the recipe for foul?
