Breakfast Potatoes for Brunch

I love a good brunch and a good brunch HAS to include breakfast potatoes. They are the perfect side to any breakfast meal. Our favorite way to make breakfast potatoes is in the oven.  Roasted Breakfast Potatoes are super easy to make and SO good! They are a staple at our house for breakfast, brunch, and really anytime!

We are a breakfast potato family and these oven roasted breakfast potatoes are our favorite. They are SO easy to make and are on the healthier side since they are baked in the oven and not fried. Another big bonus, you can make them in ONE pan, so there is less mess.

How to Make Breakfast Potatoes

The roasted red peppers and onions give the potatoes a ton of flavor. They go great with any breakfast…and sometimes we make them for dinner.

  1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, because I am all for easy cleanup.
  2. Toss the red potatoes, red bell pepper, and red onion with olive oil.
  3. Season the veggies with garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  4. Roast the potatoes until they are nice and crispy. Crispy potatoes are a MUST. Sometimes, I even let the potatoes go a little longer so they are slightly burnt around the edges. The burnt potatoes are my favorite. You can cook them to whatever doneness you like, but trust me, you want them crispy!

We like to serve the potatoes hot with ketchup. You can also spice them up with your favorite hot sauce or salsa. They are SO good!

You can serve the breakfast potatoes with:

  1. I like the ideas of putting red peppers in your perfectly roasted potatoes. Nothing worse than soggy and underdone taters. And now breakfast duty is on me, and maybe I’ll make these for my mother in law to impress her. (ok, that’s not gonna happen)

  2. This looks so good! I love home fries, but I never make them anymore because the oil makes my whole house feel greasy. Roasting them like this will make them just as crispy, but healthier! Yum =)

  3. My dad used to make breakfast potatoes for us when I was kid, but never with bell peppers.  Sounds amazing! I haven’t had any in a long time, I will have to try these out soon!

  4. I heart potatoes…. I am going to have to try this recipe this weekend. It looks absolutely delicious.

  5. I was so looking for a recipe like this.  I  couldn’t decide if I should parboil and fry, and I realize now that baking is better, as long as I have the time if we’re not starving.  🙂  Which leads me to my question… do you think I could make ahead a big batch of these, and then freeze some individual portions, to heat up in a pinch?  I know they will taste better fresh out of the oven, but what do you think?  I am disabled and I must do cooking in this sort of fashion, freeze and have servings on hand.  I wonder if the mixture will freeze okay, and will thaw out or heat up okay when needed.  Thank you; your recipes are great!

    1. Yes, you can freeze and reheat. Like you said, fresh is best, but they will still be tasty! Thanks for reading our blog and making our recipes!

    1. Same time, but use more baking sheets so the potatoes aren’t over crowded.

  6. These look delicious I am definitely going to try them. I have a question though could I prepare everything the night before and just pop them in the oven in the morning?

  7. 5 stars
    My go-to breakfast potato recipe. Always delicious. We use it as our base for ‘Potatoes’ (topping with cheese, avocado, salsa, sour cream, and anything else yummy on hand…green onions, cilantro, jalapeños, diced tomatoes, an egg, or soyrizo, etc.).

  8. Looks good! Will it work to make them at home but only roast them part of the time.? I’m attending a brunch 1 1/2 hours away. I was hoping I could just pop them back in the oven to finish roasting them. Would this work? I do want that crispiness.

    Thank you
