Spicy Breakfast Home Fries

READY IN: 26mins
Recipe by John from CT 2

This is something I just kind of cooked up one day. This is a great side dish to a hearty breakfast and the leftovers in the pan are great to cook your eggs in. The amount of spices you put in really are to taste, but I can give the approximate amounts that I use. NOTE: Instead of cooking this in olive oil, bacon drippings can be used.

I made this last week and thought this was really good. I did not have any curry powder so I subbed garam masala. I used one and a half teaspoons for the spices and used seasoned salt in place of table salt. I just added the ketchup at the table for those who wanted to put some on their individual portions. ( I like hot sauce and ketchup) Thanks for posting the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop onions into small pieces and cube potatoes into small cubes.
  2. Add cubed potatoes to the zip lock bag along with 0.5 tablespoon olive oil, marjoram, oregano, black pepper, curry powder, table salt and cayenne pepper. Mix this mixture around in the bag until the potatoes are well coated with everything.
  3. Coat medium-sized frying pan with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Set heat to medium.
  4. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to oil and saute for no more than 2 minutes.
  5. Add contents of ziplock bag to the pan with the onions and garlic.
  6. Mix the ingredients in the pan and cook for 10 minutes with the cover on to soften the potatoes, stirring occasionally to prevent the potatoes from sticking.
  7. After 10 minutes, remove the cover and cook for another 10 minutes to crisp the potatoes.
  8. When 10 minutes is up, add the ketchup on the top of the layer of potatoes and mix well. Cover and cook for another minute. Serve.
