Best Breakfast Potatoes Ever

Last weekend my brother and his girlfriend came in to town to celebrate my Mom’s birthday.  We decided that for her birthday we would make her (and the rest of the family) brunch.  They were in charge of making crepes and filling, and meat. (there was a savory caramelized onion option, and a blueberry sauce, delicious.) The husband and I were in charge of breakfast potatoes and a couple of desserts.  (Brunch totally needs dessert, right?)

I’m a big fan of breakfast potatoes, and I’ve made regular roasted potatoes before, so they seemed like an easy enough thing to make.  I searched the internet for a recipe to guide me, and by far the most popular one that I found was a recipe from The Pioneer Woman called Best Breakfast Potatoes Ever.  I know that some people swear by some of Ree’s recipes, but I’m pretty sure this is the first one I’ve ever made.


They turned out really well! I made half of a batch (1 sheet pan full instead of two) and it was the perfect amount for 6 people.  I also didn’t put in the peppers, just because we aren’t really fans.

The recipe was not really difficult.  It was a little labor intensive cutting up the potatoes, onions, and garlic, but not anything too difficult or complicated. A couple of things of note though. 1) when I seasoned them with the amounts recommended, it didn’t look like there was much seasoning on them at all, but after eating them, it was the perfect amount, I’m glad I didn’t add more.  2) If you print only the “recipe” and not the entire post, it doesn’t include a lot of directions.  Maybe for some people this is ok, but I liked having it step by step like it was on her post so I knew I was doing things correctly.

Ease: A-, a little bit of chopping, and some time to make, but not anything too difficult.
Taste: A+, I really think they tasted like restaurant quality breakfast potatoes.  Delicious.

Would I make them again?  Yeah I think so.  Definitely for another brunch, or gathering.

  1. The Pioneer Woman has some awesome recipes!!!

  2. I love Pioneer Woman recipes, but you have to check the servings. I was going to make a few of her things for Thanksgiving last year, but for our family of four it was far too much! (her servings were for 12-15 people).

    • Yes! I’m glad I realized that it was meant for 12 people as I was making the grocery list for this recipe, and that the recipe was easily halved. It drives me crazy when I try to cut large recipes in half and end up with like 1.5 eggs or something weird.

  3. […] mentioned when I wrote about the delicious breakfast potatoes that I made, that I also made a couple of desserts for that brunch as well.  One of those desserts […]
