Roasted Breakfast Potatoes recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

I love having roasted and pan fried potatoes with our eggs for breakfast. However, I am not about to spend an hour’s time to make them most mornings.

What I do instead, is to throw a tray of these in the oven at other times during the day when I might already have the oven on. They take 45 minutes to cook; but when the oven is already on, it doesn’t seem like much effort at all.

When I am ready to use these, I simply put the amount that I need in a skillet over medium heat to warm them and let them get just a bit crispy before serving. Toss them with scrambled eggs, serve with Huevos Rancheros or any number of other breakfast dishes.

Roasted Breakfast Potatoes

Pin Print Review

Ingredients 

  • 6 medium size potatoes reds and golden yellows are my current favorites
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • Any other seasonings that you like with your potatoes; seasoning mixes thyme, rosemary, garlic, just about anything works

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub and rinse the potatoes. Cut them into slightly smaller than bite size pieces. Place them in a large bowl and drizzle a couple tablespoons of olive oil over them. Toss with your hands to thoroughly coat the pieces. Sprinkle generously with spices and toss again to coat well. 
  • Grease a baking sheet well with olive oil or use a silpat mat. Fill the tray with a single layer of the potato pieces and place in oven.  Roast for 40-45 minutes, turning once after 20 minutes. Check them again around 40 minutes and stir or turn as needed. Let them get soft and then a bit crispy before removing them from the oven.
  • Let the potatoes cool completely and then store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • When I am ready to use these, I simply put the amount that I need in a skillet over medium heat to warm them and let them get just a bit crispy before serving. Toss them with scrambled eggs, serve with
    Huevos Rancheros or any number of other breakfast dishes.

    I really need to start just throwing veggies in the oven more often so that I'll have them for later when I want them. These look perfectly crisp!

    These sound wonderful. I was eying my potatoes until I realized I am hungry now… 45 minutes is a lifetime in the morning. I think I will take your suggestion and cook them when I already have the stove on and have them tomorrow. ; )

    I should have thought of this before…This is really cool. It is a very easy recipe made from our household favorite — potatoes! This will be a breakfast, lunch and dinner staple!
