Quick & Easy Breakfast Potatoes

Just recently I was asked to bring a breakfast dish for an upcoming celebration at work. I quickly offered to bring assorted donuts but it was shot down as an idea just as quickly. My co-workers are too smart to pass up a good thing. They know I enjoy cooking and suggested I bring a tasty home-made dish instead. It really didn’t take much to convince me.

So, I decided to whip up this quick and easy breakfast potato dish that anyone can put together even on a work day, in no time flat! It’s also a great idea as a side dish for brunch especially if you’re hosting. It tastes amazing and it’s incredibly satisfying!

  3. Drain potatoes and toss with onions. Season with salt and pepper, herbs, red pepper flakes and drizzle with olive oil.
