Diner Home Fries from Leftover Baked Potatoes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by 2Bleu

In NJ and NY area, this is how many diners make their yummy homefries. The diners I worked at would begin by taking the baked potatoes leftover from dinner, unwrapping the aluminum foil, then cutting off the skins. Then they start slicing the potatoes for the breakfast crowd who are eagerly awaiting these wonderful home fries that go perfectly with their omelets, toast, and coffee filled breakfast. *If your looking for the 'perfect' baked potatoes, try Bird's Perfect Baked Potatoes

These are delicious! I made these for breakfast after having baked potatoes the night before. I loved the crispiness on the outside and how soft they were on the inside. I will use this recipe again. Thanks for sharing.
