Breakfast Potatoes
Level: Easy
Total: 50 min
Active: 40 min
Yield: 4 servings


3 Yukon gold potatoes, medium dice
2 garlic cloves, smashed
Kosher salt
3 slices bacon, cut into lardons
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more if needed
1/2 medium Spanish onion, diced
Pinch crushed red pepper
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 teaspoon seafood seasoning, such as Old Bay
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh chives


Place the potatoes and garlic in a large pot. Cover them with water and season the water generously with salt. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 8 minutes. Drain the potatoes and discard the garlic. Let the potatoes cool.

Put the bacon and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large cast-iron skillet. Turn the heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the onions, some salt and crushed red pepper and saute until soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the bell pepper and continue to cook until beginning to soften, 3 to 4 minutes more. Add the potatoes and cook until crispy, 4 to 5 minutes, adding more olive oil if needed. Season with the seafood seasoning and sprinkle with the chives.

  1. Lets be fair here. I like some cooking tips that she gives. However, I am not impressed with what she does, I am pretty sure that I can do a better job. Applying some cooking Technics without even understanding the essence of cooking.
    Unfortunately, this is what you guys call cooking in USA, I would called it more assembling. I like the part,"We going to add some seafood seasoning", like magic powder. And Abracadabra, Voilà. "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king". Worst part of all , she thinks that she is good.. so do people.

  2. She puts lots of salt in the boiling water, then adds a lot of salt to the frying bacon when bacon is already salty enough, then she ends it with adding seafood seasoning and that also has salt!!! That is a lot of salt!!! I like the recipe but please cut the salt in half!
