Stop buying frozen home fries and make your own with fresh vegetables and spices in less than 30 minutes!
While I don't normally make a big breakfast I do tend to make breakfast for dinner at least once a month. We always have my old fashioned pancakes, either bacon or sausage, home fries, and fresh fruit. I usually keep a bag of home fries in the freezer but when I went to take them out last week I found out they were all gone.
I had two choices. I could either run to the store and grab a bag or I could try and make them myself. Since I had a five pound bag of potatoes I figured I would try and make them myself.
I took a few of the potatoes out and diced them into half inch cubes. I added some salt and pepper and then sauteed them in olive oil until they started to get tender.
Then I grabbed an onion and a bell pepper out of the crisper and diced them up. I added them to the potatoes along with some seasonings and cooked them until the potatoes were soft on the interior but starting to crisp up on the outside.
I served the home fries with a side of ketchup and man were they delicious! They had so much more flavor then the ones I buy frozen and they were crisp on the exterior but had a soft middle. I'm not sure why I've never made them before!
I can tell you one thing, I won't be buying frozen home fries again. From now on it's only homemade home fries for me.
