Breakfast Potatoes

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

Last night was one of those nights where you have the battle of "what do you want for dinner?". So it was settled, it became breakfast night. I wanted to do something a little different with omlettes and played around with some potatoes and the end result was delicious.

Breakfast Potatoes
2 medium potatoes, peeled
1 tbsp. canola oil
1/4 c. chopped onion
1/4 c. chopped green pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. oil
1 tbsp. butter
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. pepper

Peel and cube potatoes into small cubes. Boil water in a medium pot over high heat. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm - about 10 to 15 minutes. Drain in strainer and set aside.

In a medium skillet, heat 1 tbsp. oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and pepper and cook for about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook additional two minutes.

Push onion mixture to the side and add butter and remaining oil. Add potatoes and keep heat at medium-high. Add paprika, salt and pepper. Stir occasionally and cook until potatoes are golden brown, takes about 10 minutes.
