Fried Potatoes and Eggs

Fried Potatoes And EggsA hearty breakfast for busy, calorie consuming days outdoors or a quick dinner, or even lunch! We love this Balanced, High-​Fiber, Low-​Sodium, Dairy-​Free, Gluten-​Free, light meal.

Welcome to a favorite breakfast , lunch or dinner at our house. We love breakfast for dinner and we always have fresh eggs to use up. Potato Sausage Stir-Fry, is One of my best quick skillet dinners. An especially nice meal for summer. No heating the oven and it’s done in under 30 minutes! Out of eggs? Try my Savory Waffles and Gravy!

Frying Potatoes

Set everything in the frying pan. Cover for about 10 minutes and then come bake and turn the spuds. About another 10 minutes later…serve it up!

Today’s version of fried potatoes is scaled down for breakfast. My hubby loves fried potatoes and eggs over easy, so I’m making him this recipe for a hearty start to his busy day out in the garden.Fried Potatoes And Eggs Over Easy

I’m adding sausage into the frying pan because I have some that needs using and it’s so good with fried potatoes! You can also use ham or bacon if you have some handy. I recommend frying bacon separately, to get it crispy, and pat it dry to tone down the fat calories a bit. Although, bacon fat is a completely awesome extra flavor for the potatoes.  You could eliminate the coconut oil and fry the bacon in the big skillet. Then add the fried potatoes in if you want to use the bacon fat. Fat calories should be about the same…just saying. This is a versatile recipe. Make it your own!

We have fresh strawberries right now so they are part of breakfast. Any fresh fruit can make a nice garnish and accompaniment to this meal. If you’re a salsa fan, go for it! We chose to eat this plain today. It was fantastic all by itself!

When I was a kid, my mom used to fry potatoes and hot dogs for a quick dinner and we all loved it. This looks like a more sophisticated version and adding eggs always makes everything better. This looks delicious!
