Follow along with me, step-by-step, as I show you how to make breakfast potatoes. As always, you’ll find precise instructions and ingredients toward the bottom of the post, in the recipe card.
Cook the Potatoes
The first step in making crispy breakfast potatoes is cooking the potatoes! Boil or microwave potatoes until fully cooked and softened.
You should be able to easily sink a fork into the very center of the potato—that’s how you know it’s perfect for this breakfast potatoes recipe.
Prep the Potatoes
Once the potatoes are fully cooked, carefully slice into ½” cubes. Remember, there’s no need to peel off the skin.
Prepare the Seasoning Mix
Next, combine garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. Stir to combine.
Make the Crispy Breakfast Potatoes
Now, it’s time to heat a large skillet to medium heat. Drizzle in oil and spread to an even layer—this will create truly crispy breakfast potatoes.
Allow potatoes to cook for about 3 minutes, since this will create crisp, golden edges.
To check if it’s ready to flip, peek at the underside of one potato cube in the center of the skillet. It’ll be golden brown.
Once fully crisped on one side, flip the breakfast potatoes. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt.
Cook for another 3 minutes or so, until crisp on the remaining side.
Next, grab the breakfast potatoes seasoning mixture. Sprinkle it all over the potatoes.
Then, drizzle more oil to create crispy edges. Stir and flip to get crispy all over breakfast potatoes.
Cook for a few more minutes until as crisp as you desire.
Lastly, add salt and pepper to taste. Serve, then enjoy the best crispy breakfast potatoes!
Cool breakfast potatoes completely before storing. Then, transfer potatoes into an airtight container in the refrigerator. Keep for 1-3 days.
As you would with refrigerator storage, cool breakfast potatoes completely before storing in the freezer.
Store breakfast potatoes in an airtight, freezer-friendly container for 1-3 months. Reheat before serving.
