Fried Breakfast Potatoes

Lately I have been trying out a lot of new breakfast entrees. Part of it is that my sleep schedule is completely wonky due to working nights so it is perfectly normal for me to be too exhausted to make dinner at 7pm but wide awake and ready to go at 4am. During those moments of lucidness I take advantage and make a satisfying breakfast. This morning I was wanting something a little different from the typical cereal or scrambled eggs. I had some potatoes that i needed to use up so my solution was to make some fried potatoes!

  • 1 Tbls olive oil
  • 1 Tbls Earth Balance butter
  • 1 small onion
  • 3 potatoes
  • 1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup Daiya cheddar shreds

  1. Heat large skillet with olive oil and butter until melted.
  2. Chop onion and potatoes into small pieces. Add to heated skillet.
  3. Next, add garlic, salt, pepper, and parsley. Cook on high heat until onions and potatoes are brown. Stir occasionally. Potatoes are done when fork can easily pierce potato pieces and the outsides are crispy and brown. 
  4. When potatoes are finished add egg and stir to scramble and evenly mix with potato mixture.
  5. Sprinkle cheddar shreds on top and let melt.
  6. Serve with a side of toast.
Plain potatoes without egg and cheese.

If you want your potatoes to be more plain leave out the eggs and cheese. They are just as good and taste delicious dipped in ketchup. This meal doesn't take a lot of time and is easy to prepare. Hope you enjoy!
