5 Russet potatoes
1 medium-sized onion
4 Tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 Teaspoon of Cajun seasoning
1 Teaspoon of onion powder
1 Teaspoon of garlic powder
1 Teaspoon of dried parsley
1 Teaspoon of salt
1 Teaspoon of paprika
¼ Cup of chicken broth
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
Start off by peeling the skin off your russet potatoes. Use a knife that is sharp and handy to cut them into thin layers. Remember, the thinner, the better!
Next, chop your onion finely. Onions give your breakfast potatoes a delightful zing. If you’re feeling adventurous, consider adding some diced green bell peppers into the mix!
In a large skillet, heat 4 tablespoons of oil. Not too much, not too little – balance is key!
Once the oil is hot, it’s time to introduce the potatoes. They’ll sizzle and dance as they start to cook.
Follow up quickly with the chopped onions (and those optional bell peppers if you’ve chosen to include them). Stir everything occasionally to ensure an even cook and prevent any stubborn bits from sticking to the pan.
Now, for the seasoning blend. Combine Cajun seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, salt, and paprika in a bowl. Mix them well and then sprinkle this colorful confetti all over your potatoes. The Cajun kick adds a little adventure to your breakfast, while the paprika imparts a gorgeous, appetizing hue.
Once your potatoes are dressed in their spice ensemble, pour your chicken broth around the edges of the skillet, not in the middle. You don’t want to wash away those beautiful spices, just steam them a bit! (source: Ineskohl.info)
Cover your skillet and let the potatoes cook for about five minutes on low heat. Meanwhile, grind some fresh pepper over the mix for that last hit of spice.
After the short wait, unveil your skillet, and behold! Your perfect, flavorful breakfast potatoes are ready to serve.
Try a hot, crispy piece right away, and revel in the explosion of flavors. These potatoes are incredible on their own, but you can always take it a step further. Feel free to sprinkle some cooked bacon bits or sausage slices to add a little protein punch. Trust me, the more the merrier!
Serve it up and enjoy! These breakfast potatoes are so versatile, you can enjoy them any time of the day.
