Breakfast Potatoes

  • 4 medium/large Idaho potatoes, diced into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 large white onion, diced
  • 1 large red pepper, diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  1. First, preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. Next, prepare veggies by dicing potatoes into 1-inch chunks and dicing the white onion and red pepper into 1/2-inch chunks. Transfer potatoes and onion onto a baking sheet and set red pepper aside.
  3. Generously drizzle potatoes with olive oil and toss, making sure the veggies are coated.
  4. Next, mix together the potato seasoning in a small bowl. Evenly sprinkle seasoning over the potatoes and onion and toss to coat.
  5. Roast at 400ºF for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and add the red pepper and toss everything together.
  6. Place back into the oven and roast for 15 more minutes. Remove from the oven and pierce your potatoes with a fork. They should be almost done. If they’re still hard, put them back in for 5-10 more minutes. If they’re almost fully cooked, broil breakfast potatoes for around 2-5 minutes (depending on your broiler) to get them extra crispy.
