One of my favorite meal prep recipes is breakfast potatoes! These Easy Weekday Breakfast Potatoes are the ultimate filling breakfast and perfect to serve with eggs or other favorite breakfast foods!
Whether you have some leftover potatoes or you steam or bake some specifically for this recipe, Easy Weekday Breakfast Potatoes are about the easiest hearty filling breakfast you can have! I love eating these with poached eggs for a warm delicious breakfast that will stick with me all day. This breakfast potato recipe essentially involves taking those already cooked potatoes, cubing, seasoning and sautéing them until they are nice and crispy!! Perfect for a cozy weekend breakfast, or a breakfast that will sustain you for those busy workdays.
Making the potatoes:
You can start off with making potatoes in any of the following ways!
- steamed in the pressure cooker
I made them in my Instant Pot because it was such a quick and easy way to make up a big batch and I really like how they turn out, but you could just as easily make extra when you are baking or grilling dinner.
Best potatoes to use for Easy Weekday Breakfast Potatoes:
Not all potatoes are the same. The typical baking potatoes or the ones you would use for traditional mashed potatoes are russets, which won’t work as well for this recipe. Instead I’d suggest:
- Yukon gold
- red potatoes
- white creamer potatoes
- dutch baby potatoes
Or essentially something from that variety, basically a firmer potatoes with a creamier texture.
A cast iron skillet is great for this recipe! I pretty much suggest that everyone have one because they work well for so many things, are very versatile and inexpensive.
Also, keep on hand some of your favorite seasoning blends, and change up this recipe with a wide choice of flavors. For just the basics, stick with a single dried herb. I usually go for dill, but rosemary and thyme are also delicious.
