Morning Skillet Potatoes

img_5361

I am all about easy and fast these days.  Not just because if time but with us all cooking so much more-  we want to be useful with what we have as well as healthy and tasty.  My FAVORITE is baked potato night at home.  We do a big assembly line of toppings and you make your own.  I always bake two extra potatoes just in case there is company.  But we all know it’s for the easy morning skillet you can make with the left over spuds.  Simple-Fast and add a dippy egg on top and you have breakfast bliss. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • Two good sized bakers potatoes-cooked
  • Mixed bell peppers Green, yellow, red chopped
  • Small sweet onion cleaned and chopped
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic fresh- heaping tsp Jarred
  • seasoned garlic salt to taste
  • two Tablespoons of Canola Oil
  • Black pepper
  • parsley garnish optional

Chop potatoes and place into a prepped heated to a sizzle(add salt to oil heating) hot deep skillet or cast iron with oil.

Chop peppers and onions on top of potatoes and press down to start a bottom crust. Flat spatula flip as bottom browns about 3-4 minutes.  don’t let it burn- but should be good and crispy in 12 minutes.

Easy short cut- I like to have chopped peppers in easy grab bags in the freezer. Frozen peppers work great in this skillet.
