Skillet Breakfast Potatoes

Skillet Breakfast Potatoes are a yummy addition to any meal (even dinner). They're so simple to make with only a few ingredients you probably already have on hand.
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 20 mins
Servings: 2


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 medium gold potatoes, diced
  • 1/2 medium white or yellow onion, diced
  • salt & pepper to taste

Optional: fresh chopped herbs


    • Heat olive oil in a cast iron skillet or frying pan of choice.
    • Add diced potatoes and onion. Don't overload your skillet or your potatoes will take a long time to brown. You want to have almost a single layer evenly distributed in your pan.
    • Saute on medium high heat, stirring occasionally until sides of potatoes have browned. This can take 5 to 10 minutes depending on your stove and the size of your potatoes.
    • If potatoes have browned but don't seem a little soft to the touch cover the pan with a lid and reduce heat to medium for 2 to 3 minutes.
    • Salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh herbs.
