Home Fries are loaded with flavor and have that perfect crisp yet fluffy texture. They’re the ultimate breakfast comfort food!
I meant to post this recipe last Friday but the past few days have been a little crazy. My mom, who recently moved to Colorado, came back to Arizona to finish packing up her house. She couldn’t pack any of her alcohol, cleaning supplies, or food so guess who scored the jackpot? I literally have buckets of bottles and food in my kitchen that need to find homes. I think I’ll use that as an excuse to head to Bed Bath and Beyond to buy some organizational products. I love organizational and office products, in case you didn’t know. The closest Container Store to me is about 45 minutes away which is probably a good thing otherwise I would be completely broke (but perfectly organized). I’ve also been working on schoolwork which means reading like 5 books a week. AND I’ve been working on finishing up edits of my cookbook manuscript (eeek!). My desk is currently covered in textbooks, binders, recipes, to-do lists, and maybe some Oreo cookie crumbs. I had almost forgotten that I made these wonderful home fries to share with you!
Taste: So much more flavorful than any home fries I’ve had out to breakfast at a restaurant. These babies are savory, slightly spicy, and slightly sweet.
Texture: The potatoes have that rich golden brown, buttery crust and fluffy inside. What’s better than that?
Ease: Not exactly an on-the-go breakfast recipe but perfect for Sunday breakfasts or brunches.
Appearance: The potatoes with their golden crusts and the red bell peppers just look like comfort food.
Pros: Your family will ask you to make these potatoes every weekend.
Cons: Requires some times at the cutting board and at the stove.
Would I make this again? Yes.
