Easy Breakfast Potatoes

My husband is SUCH fan of these breakfast potatoes. BONUS: You can literally make them in 15 minutes, one handed, while you juggle a baby on your hip. 😛 I know because that is exactly how these were made!! The trick to quickening the cooking process is microwaving the potatoes beforehand. Once you do that, it’s just a matter of throwing them on a hot skillet with your favorite spices and bam… Done and done. Jeff and I LOVE these potatoes paired with over-easy eggs and turkey sausage for a truly hearty and healthy meal, but you could also throw some bacon, red onion, and scramble some eggs in for an easy one pan meal. This recipe is extremely forgiving, so feel free to get creative with the spices and add ins. What are some of your favorite variations?
