A simple one-pan vegetarian breakfast or brunch made in a skillet.   The Potatoes are cooked in the skillet, the vegetables are added and with seasoned with Paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

You can put these amazing skillet potatoes together in three easy steps:

Step 1: Prepare the Potatoes

First of all, you need to prepare the potatoes by peeling them and cutting them into equal cubes. This will ensure even cooking. Rinse the Potatoes in cold tap water, drain and set it aside while you prepare the other ingredients. Note: If you want the skin on, simply scrub the potatoes thoroughly before cutting them into cubes.

Step 2: Prepare the vegetables

Dice the Bell peppers – Slice off the top of the peppers to easily remove the stem. Slice off the bottom as well and run your knife around the inside of the pepper to remove the seeds in one piece. Cut the pepper open from the top down and use your hand or your knife to pull away any remaining fibrous filament and begin to dice the peppers. Dice the Onions as well.

Step 3: Cook the Potatoes

Finally, throw the potatoes in a preheated oil. Add the Paprika, Garlic powder, salt, and black pepper to taste. Finish it up by adding some Cilantro or Parsley and Voila! ?Your Breakfast potato is ready.

Notes

  1. It is best to eat these skillet potatoes while still hot but they still taste good at room temperature.
  2. I have used Russet potatoes in my recipe, however, Red skin potatoes can also be used.
  3. Try not to overcrowd the potatoes so that they can all cook evenly
  4. Ensure the potatoes all touch the pan so as to get each of them well browned.
  5. I know this is a skillet potato recipe, but don't be discouraged if you don't own a skillet. You can still make this in a non-stick pan - yes, I've tried it and it came out beautiful.
