How To Make Breakfast Skillet Potatoes?

I love to use a slightly waxy potato like the Yukon gold variety, which doesn't fall apart as the mealy variety when cooked.

This is such an easy recipe to prepare because there is no need to pre-boiled the potatoes. I just add the liquid into the skillet and cover to cook potatoes until they were tender. I then remove the cover and continue to cook until potatoes were golden brown and crispy.

  1. Heat oil in a non-stick skillet.
  2. Add potatoes and stir to coat with the oil.
  3. Sprinkle potato slices with onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, parsley, salt and stir to coat.
  4. Add water or vegetable broth and cover skillet and cook until liquid is absorbed and the potatoes are crisp on the outside, about 15-20 minutes.
  5. Carefully turn potatoes over to crisp on the other side.

Pro Tips For Making Breakfast Potatoes

  1. Prepare the potatoes the night before, scrub potatoes, cut into slices and store in cold water the night before to prevent them from browning. The following morning, drain potatoes, add the seasonings and cook fresh.
  2. Make sure to use a non-stick skillet or cast iron pan to prevent potatoes from sticking.

    They were delicious. Mine did not get crispy, as I failed to removed the top near the end. Will try again, as I like crispy potatoes. But the taste was very good.

      MJ, so happy you enjoyed it. Definitely, need to remove top so the edges get crispy. Hope you try again.
