Breakfast Potatoes Ingredients

ingredients for breakfast potatoes- medley of baby potatoes, fresh rosemary, dish with assorted spices and salt.
  • Potatoes: Red potatoes, Yukon gold potatoes, fingerlings, or any thin-skinned potatoes (not russet potatoes)
  • Olive oil – adds richness and gives the potatoes a crunchy exterior. You can sub avocado oil.
  • Spices: Chili flakes (Aleppo chili is nice here), kosher salt, fresh black pepper, granulated garlic powder, paprika (chile powder or smoked paprika), dried rosemary (thyme, oregano, or sub a tablespoon fresh herbs)
  • Fresh herbs: Chopped rosemary, and optional parsley garnish

How to Make Breakfast Potatoes

Step 1: Preheat oven with the baking sheet inside to 425 degrees F. If you have a convection oven, use it- reduce temp to 400F for extra crispy potatoes!

Step 2: Prep the potatoes. Cut into 3/4 inch cubes. Toss in a large bowl, drizzle with oil, salt, and spices, mixing well to combine.

Step 3: Roast. Spread the potatoes onto the hot baking sheet with a little space between them. Place on the middle rack and flip every 10 minutes. Bake until tender in the middle, crispy on the outside, and golden brown, 30-40 minutes.

Feel free to taste a near-done potato and check the seasonings, adding more salt or spices if desired.

Step 4: Serve. Garnish with fresh herbs and serve.

Recipe Variations

  • Spices: You can use any spices you wish. Try cayenne pepper, chili powder, cajun seasoning, onion powder, cumin, turmeric, za’atar spice, curry powder, Italian seasoning, or Herbes de Provence.
  • Add other veggies: Add bell pepper and onion to the mix!
  • Toss in a skillet with veggies! In a cast iron skillet, sauté red bell pepper, green bell peppers, and onions. Then add the roasted potatoes to the skillet, frying them for a breakfast hash (especially nice with leftover potatoes)

What to Serve with Breakfast Potatoes

Chef’s Tips

  1. Preheat oven before roasting. Make sure the oven is completely preheated before roasting the potatoes. Preheating the pan in the oven is also a great option.
  2. Cut the potatoes evenly. When chopping the potatoes, try to keep them as similar in size as possible for even baking.
  3. Leave space between the potatoes. As best you can, leave some space between the potatoes to help them crisp up. You may need two baking sheets!
  4. Don’t fear the salt or oil! Follow the suggested amount of oil and salt for optimal flavor. Potatoes need the fat to crisp properly and the salt will bring out the flavor.
  5. Remember to stir frequently. Flip the potatoes around every 10 minutes to ensure they crisp up evenly on all sides.


Is it healthy to have potatoes for breakfast?

Potatoes are full of nutrients! They often get a bad wrap, but this is often due to what is typically put on them. They are naturally high in antioxidants and vitamins C and B6 (especially if the skins are left on). Potatoes are also a great source of fiber and support the digestive system. See the serving suggestions above for ideas on how to enjoy these Easy Breakfast Potatoes.

What else can I add to breakfast potatoes?

As the potatoes near their end in the oven, you can add some fresh minced garlic for garlicky potatoes or sprinkle a little grated cheese over the top.

Can these be cooked in an air fryer?

Absolutely! Breakfast potatoes are delicious cooked in an air fryer. Roast in an air-fryer for 16-20 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Storage & Reheating

Store leftover roasted potatoes in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge. Reheat leftovers in a 400F oven for 10-15 minutes, covered in foil. You can also reheat them in the toaster oven, warm on the stovetop over medium heat, or make air fryer breakfast potatoes!

  1. These potatoes are life-changing!!! I love that they can be done in the oven. I’ve made breakfast potatoes with them, and “nacho” potatoes too for dinner with guacamole, your cashew cheese recipe, fresh tomatoes, and pickled radish. So satisfying and easy to make! Love!

  2. I’ve struggled making breakfast potatoes in the past and this recipe worked well for me. I only had russets on hand so I used those, peeled, and it still turned out great! I will reduce the garlic powder a bit, next time.
