Is there anything better than a hearty breakfast of crispy breakfast potatoes and eggs after a late night? No, I don’t think there is.
I’ve long relegated breakfast potatoes to indulgent breakfast status, but I finally figured out how to roast delectably crisp, diner-style home fries at home. These will definitely make an appearance at my next brunch, and probably on the dinner table, too. They’re that good.
Potatoes have a bad reputation, but red potatoes actually have a number of redeeming qualities. One medium red potato has about one-third of your daily Vitamin C requirement, plus four grams of protein and three grams of fiber (source). Just buy organic, if possible, and don’t peel off the skin, which is where most of that goodness resides.
I see no reason not to make these whenever the craving strikes, especially when you’re serving them with a protein-rich accompaniment, like eggs. Throw something fresh and green into the mix and you have yourself a gourmet, healthy brunch!
