Roasted Breakfast Potatoes

Can you imagine waking up to the most crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside plate of these potatoes?! These Oven Roasted Breakfast Potatoes are the perfect addition to my potato crew – the melting potatoes, the roasted ranch potatoes, and the trusty twice baked potato!

As you know by now, I’m a fan of the mighty potato and ALL the lovely ways it can be prepared.

Roasted potatoes may be my favorite though, because they pair perfectly with thick sliced bacon and over easy eggs. YUM. 🥓 I like making these on the weekend because it does take a little extra time to prepare them, but that doesn’t mean it’s hard at all!

I like to keep my side dishes easy to make, and this recipe is no different. The hardest thing about these roasted breakfast potatoes is chopping them up.

One quick note before we get started – buy smoked paprika. Not just “paprika” GET SMOKED PAPRIKA. It makes the biggest difference in this recipe and many others that include this spice. I always get the McCormick brand 😁
