Easy Breakfast Potatoes Recipe

As in many households, potatoes are a staple in ours. So I learn as many simple ways to prepare them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast potatoes is one of the easiest ones to learn and they're fairly hearty just by themselves and, even more so, with eggs. Not to mention that my diabetic aunt craves potato every once in a while as part of her diet.

Breakfast Potatoes. It's just chopped up potatoes, microwaved, seasoned and finally cooked in a skillet. Sometimes, simple works very well.

Breakfast Potatoes

  • 1 1/2 pounds potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces;
  • 4 tbsp butter;
  • 1 onion, chopped fine;
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt;
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt;
  • Ground black pepper.


Microwave the potatoes on high for 5 minutes by placing the potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl and mixing 1 tbsp of butter. About halfway through, stir the potatoes so that they are redistributed before finishing. Set aside when done.

Melt 1 tbsp butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the onions until golden brown then transfer them to a small bowl when done. Set the cooked onions aside.

Melt remaining butter in the empty skillet while keeping the heat at medium setting. Add the potatoes and cook one side at a time without moving for 5 minutes or until brown. Then turn the potatoes and cook other side without moving for 5 minutes or until brown and crisp.

Reduce heat to med-low and continue cooking. Stir potatoes every so often until crusty. Add onion, garlic salt, pepper, and salt to taste. Serve while hot.

Now, I do my best to avoid using butter because my diabetic aunt has to watch her fat intake. Because of this, I sometimes cook with olive oil because it has less saturated fat than butter.
