My recipe for breakfast potatoes.

Top Review by lazyme

These were great! I used them as a side dish for breakfast. I added red and green bell peppers, and all fresh herbs except the sage and thyme - had to use dried. We really enjoyed these and plan to repeat them again. Thanks for sharing. Made for Cookbook Tag.
