Breakfast potatoes.

Potatoes rock! I love them anytime of the day, but breakfast is, in my opinion, the best time to have them. Who can resist sauteed potatoes, really? It's a perfect side-dish to eggs. In restaurants they're usually deep-fried, but it's really easy to make them healthy and delicious without loading up on the fat. So it doesn't have to be a once in a while luxury anymore.
I make those 2-3 times a week. I'm Irish, after all, I gotta have my potatoes!

Ingredients(not really specific, i don't like measuring things unless it's for baking...):

-Potatoes, diced, one medium-size per person.(i keep the skin on but you could peel them if you'd like...)
-Mushrooms(potato's best friend if you ask me...), sliced, about 1/3-1/2 cup...
-Green onion, chopped, about 1/4 cup(1-2 onion...)
-Flat-leaf parsley, 1/4 cup or so, chopped roughly.
-Salt, pepper and paprika.
-1-2 TBSP canola oil

-Heat the oil med-high heat.
-Add potatoes, salt, pepper and paprika to taste. Toss so they get evenly coated.
-Cover, turn heat to medium.
-Cook about 5 minutes(could be more depending on the size of your potatoes, the smaller they are the faster they will cook), check for doneness and toss around to even the browning.
-Add mushrooms and onion, cook until everything is, well, cooked...
-Throw in the parsley at the end.
That's what I call some good potatoes!


  1. Congratulations on your new blog! Email me if you have any questions or want suggestions on blogging stuff. Such a good fun it is!

    I love breakfast potatoes, and I usually add a few chili flakes too :)

  2. Thanx for checking in! and I will probably eventually email you with some questions!!
    and yes... chili flakes...definetly.

  3. I'm surprised that you don't boil them before sautéing them! I guess covering them does the job?

  4. yep. cover=STEAM!! keeps more nutrients in that way!
