Cheesy breakfast potatoes

Potatoes and cheese. Has there ever been a more to-die-for food combination? Because let’s face it, when you take two already-pretty-awesome foods and put them together, you’re bound to be onto a winner, right?

Whenever we make a big breakfast or brunch, potatoes always feature. These cheesy breakfast potatoes have become a firm favorite because not only are they obviously totally delicious but they are SO easy to make. It’s pretty much breakfast hash with non of the fuss.

You simply dump all the ingredients (except for the cheese and chives) into a bowl, mix it all up before transferring to an oven-proof dish and baking until crisp and golden. Top it with cheese and allow to melt and dig in. What could be easier (or more perfect for breakfast)?

Ingredients Needed

  • Onions.
  • Seasoning: Smoked paprika, dried thyme, oregano.
  • Olive oil.
  • Mozzarella cheese.
  • Salt and black pepper.

How do you make breakfast potatoes?

  1. Prepare the potatoes: Cube potatoes (any potato good for roasting will work well) then combine with chopped onion, spices and olive oil. Transfer to a large skillet then roast until crisp, golden and cooked through.
  2. Add all the cheese: Top with grated mozzarella (Cheddar, Fontina, Raclette and Provolone can also be used) then return to the oven. Allow to bake until the cheese melts. Scatter with chives and serve.
