These breakfast home fries are perfect any day of the year, including Christmas morning! You can pre-cooked the potatoes in advance and warm before serving!
Pre-cooking the potatoes ensures they cook evenly (without the outside becoming overcooked before the inside is cooked!)
- Large cast iron skillet
- 1.5 lbs Little Fingerlings™ Little Potatoes, halved lengthwise
- 2 Tbsp bacon grease, plus more if necessary
- 8 oz button mushrooms, sliced
- (To taste) salt and pepper
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped small
- (For garnish) dried parsley
Place potatoes into a microwave-safe dish and heat for five minutes, or until fork tender.
In a large cast iron pan, heat one tablespoon bacon grease over medium-high heat. Once hot, add mushrooms and cook for three minutes. Add potatoes.
Cook for five minutes, stirring frequently. Add other tablespoon of bacon grease along with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and dried oregano.
Continue cooking for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until potatoes are golden brown to your liking! If needed, add more bacon grease as you toss the potatoes (need to be tossed more often near the end to prevent burning.) In the last few minutes of cooking, stir in red peppers.
Garnish with dried parsley if desired!
