This is one of my favorite breakfast sides to make on the weekend. Country Style Breakfast Potatoes! They’ve got so much flavor, and really get you going for the day. Not to mention it’s an awesome way to sneak in some veggies in for the kids!
Sure they’re not the prettiest things to look at, but what they lack in appearance they make up in flavor. The fresh thyme and caramelized onions with bell pepper adds along with fresh thyme adds a sweetness along with savory flavor that really makes you feel good in the morning.
As always, it’s important to soak your potatoes to get out as much starch as possible. I recommend at least 10 minutes. This will prevent them from getting gummy and gray
If you don’t have fresh thyme on hand you can sub this out for dried thyme. There is a noticeable difference in flavor when going fresh so I do recommend fresh!
If you like your potatoes to have more of a crunch to them rather than being a little moist I recommend using a 15 inch cast iron skillet or even a griddle to keep steaming to a minimum.
I however do like the way they come out when using the steam, plus when covering it speeds up the cooking process. It’s all personal taste!
keep any flipping/stirring to a minimum. You want to let the sugars potatoes to caramelize to add a little crunch and flavor to this dish
Don’t be afraid to use different color bell peppers. It livens up the meal and are rich in nutrients (especially red). Key is not to overcook them so make sure they’re done at the end of the cooking time.
