Breakfast potatoes are seriously my favourite thing to eat for breakfast. As a matter of fact, potatoes are my favourite thing to eat period my breakfast potatoes are up there. Any time I order breakfast, you can be sure there’s a side of potatoes on the plate.

But the thing is, I’m very particular about my breakfast potatoes. I don’t want them to be greasy but I do want them to be crispy. I don’t want them to have been frozen. I want them to be made from actual potatoes that morning in the restaurant.

There are a few different techniques I use, but this recipe is easy and gives you delicious potatoes every single time. Let’s do it!
