Heavenly Country-Style Home Fries

Total Time

These country-style home fries are a wonderful accompaniment to any breakfast, brunch or (in my family's case) breakfast for dinner. They turn out buttery and savory with a crispy brown outer coating. I like to serve these home fries when I make breakfast for dinner for my family. We enjoy them with a juicy, smokey ham steak cooked in my cast iron skillet with a side of baby peas. Yum!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place diced potatoes, onion, paprika, garlic powder, salt and black pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Toss to evenly coat the potatoes.
  2. In a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat, melt butter.
  3. Increase skillet heat to medium-high and add potato mixture. Toss to coat evenly with butter.
  4. Cover skillet and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning and scraping the potatoes to prevent burning.
  5. When potatoes are fork-tender, remove skillet cover.
  6. With the back of your spatula, pat potatoes down into an even layer in skillet. Allow to fry untouched for 2 minutes. Then turn potatoes over and do the same for another 2 minutes. This will nicely brown and crisp the outside of the potatoes.
  7. Serve immediately.

I made more than the recipe called for even though only 3 of us were eating them as I wanted left overs for breakfast but no such luck we gobbled up the lot of these delicious potatoes. I used kifler potatoes and cut them into chunky pieces and they took closer to 20 minutes to cook in the initial cooking and about 5 minutes to crisp up.
