Best Wedding Gift

Fact: Did you know that for each and every friend of mine that gets married, I make them and their new husband/wife a giant spice pack as their gift? Yah, best gift EVER, I know.

Anyways, as part of the spice pack, I love to include my favorite spice blends.

Having a completely stocked spice cabinet is crucial to a successful marriage…right?! Either way, I love using my favorite spice blends to season chicken, burgers, and BREAKFAST POTATOES!

The Key to the Best Breakfast Potatoes

The key to getting potatoes that are crispy on the outside and perfectly cooked on the inside is baking them at a higher temperature, flipping them part way through, and finishing them off with a broil.  My mouth is salivating just typing this.

Honestly, if I could eat breakfast potatoes for every meal of the day, I totally would! They are great with an egg on top, mixed with vegetables, and you can season them any way that you would like!

Breakfast Potato Ingredients

Though breakfast potatoes are pretty simple to make, having the right ingredients on hand and understanding how to use those ingredients is so important to get the perfect crispy breakfast potato!

The Potato- We used red potatoes because they are a bit softer in the middle and we absolutely love them. Feel free to use Idaho potatoes, sweet potatoes, or fingerling potatoes.

The key (no matter what potato you use) is to cut them small enough that they will cook all the way through!

Seasoning- The last thing you want is a bland batch of breakfast potatoes. We used Italian seasoning, but as I mentioned above, feel free to use whatever spice mix you would like. I like to make sure that my breakfast potatoes are fully coated with spices, not only for flavor but for crunch!

Oil- Don’t be scared of the amount of oil you use! Making sure each potato is coated with whatever oil you use is crucial to a golden breakfast potato. We love using olive oil for our breakfast potatoes, however, feel free to use your favorite oil, too!
