Heavenly Country-Style Home Fries

"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!"

Ready In:




  • Place diced potatoes, onion, paprika, garlic powder, salt and black pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Toss to evenly coat the potatoes.
  • In a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat, melt butter.
  • Increase skillet heat to medium-high and add potato mixture. Toss to coat evenly with butter.
  • Cover skillet and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning and scraping the potatoes to prevent burning.
  • When potatoes are fork-tender, remove skillet cover.
  • 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.
  • Serve immediately.

  1. Delicious potatoes! This was really easy to make. I love the flavors from the spice combination. Everything from the ingredient amounts to cook time was perfect. Thank you!
  2. Great potatoes. Loved the seasonings and how simple they were to prepare. Thanks for sharing. Made for Best of 2013 Tag.
  3. 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. Thank you MarthaStewartWanabe, made for Best of 2013 tag game and recommended by Baby Kato.
  4. Loved these potatoes! We had them with pork and broccoli for dinner. Definitely not just for breakfast. The potatoes had wonderful flavor and the cooking directions were spot on. Thanks for sharing. Made for Best of 2013 tag.
  5. This was a great potato dish, MarthaStewartWannabe. And I really liked the paprika and onions that added great flavor to the whole recipe. The recipe doesn't say how to slice the potatoes, so I diced mine (so they would cook a little faster). A great recipe that's not only great tasting but very easy to make. Made for the Best of 2013 tag game.


<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
