Ingredients You’ll Need

In this recipe, potatoes are tossed with simple, everyday spices and roasted to crispy perfection with a soft, tender center for the best breakfast potatoes ever!

Here is everything you will need:

  • Potatoes – any type of potato will do – red, gold, russet, purple – even sweet potatoes!
  • Garlic powder – you may even like to add a dash of onion powder if you have it on hand.
  • Paprika – regular or smoked are both great and will add just a touch of flavor.
  • Salt + pepper
  • Olive oil – use your favorite.

Optional herbs and spices:

Feel free to add a teaspoon of any of the following dried thyme, oregano, old bay seasoning (just go easy on the salt), parsley, Italian seasoning, rosemary, or herbs de Provence. Also, mix and match any using your best judgement.


How To Make Breakfast Potatoes

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Scrub, dry and cut the potatoes into 1/2 – 3/4 inch cubes.
  • Place the cubed potatoes on the center of a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with oil, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper (above left), toss well with your fingers and hands.
  • Spread the potatoes into a single layer (above right).
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Turn the oven to 500, roast another 10 minutes to really get the edges crispy.
  • Let cool a few minutes and serve right away.

How To Store Leftovers

Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 – 5 days in a covered container.

Can You Freeze Breakfast Potatoes?

Yes, they freeze beautifully for up to 2 – 3 months if stored properly. To freeze, let the potatoes cool completely and store them in small or large portions using freezer friendly containers or ziplock bags. Make sure to squeeze out any excess air before sealing. Use a marker to date the baggies or add dated stickers to containers.

How To Reheat Potatoes

To reheat breakfast roasted potatoes, simply re-roast them in a preheated oven set at 400 degrees F. for 10 – 15 minutes, until warmed through. You can also zap them in the microwave for 2 – 3 minutes, stopping to stir every 1 minute or so.
