This post is about my favorite breakfast ever. I have this a couple times a week.  I love fried potatoes fixed anyway you can “fix” them and this is my favorite way. There is another post on the site for just regular country fried potatoes and potato cakes.




Breakfast Bowl

Scoop of fried potatoes

1 egg cooked the way you like it

Slice of fried ham

Cheese of your choice, sprinkle on top



Fried Potatoes

5 or 6 large potatoes, peeled and chopped into bite size pieces

1 to 1 1/2  cups flour (can use all-purpose or self-rising)

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1 (4 ounce) can green chilis, drained

hot sauce to taste

1/2 cup cooking oil

In a dish combine flour, cumin, black pepper, salt, chili powder.  Pour over chopped, raw potatoes, toss and mix well to coat potatoes.  Add drained green chilis and sprinkle on hot sauce to taste. Add potatoes to hot oil and fry until crisp. Drain and enjoy.  (The flour makes them more crispy). Makes about six servings of potatoes. Guests love these little breakfast bowls. Try these for breakfast and Enjoy!

Note: you can add onion and green pepper to these potatoes, too.

    These look really good. Will have to try the flour and spice mix never thought about using flour.

  2. So good,and comforting

  3. I love this – I’ve never made fried potatoes this way & now I’ll be sure to have that ‘crunch’, plus the extra kick from the cumin & chili powder!

  4. I never thought to dredge my potatoes in a flour mixture before. I bet these come out AWESOME!!

  5. What is the best way to keep the potatoes warm while you fix eggs for everyone? Or is it best to just scramble up some eggs and have it all finished at the same time?
