FAQs About These Easy Oven Roasted Breakfast Potatoes
Can You Saute Breakfast Potatoes?
Yes! Simply poke potatoes with knife and microwave on HIGH 5 minutes. Let cool slightly before handling. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat; add onions and cook for 2-3 minutes. Cut potatoes into cubes and add to skillet. Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are browned on all sides. Add fresh parsley and cook 1 minute.
What If I Don’t Like Zucchini?
If you don’t like zucchini, simply substitute more sweet peppers or another vegetable of your choice.
I’m Out of Sweet Peppers! What Can I Use To Substitute?
There are so many options to choose from! I love using red bell peppers or even jalapenos for a kick! But use what you and your family likes best.
Can I Use Different Potatoes Other Than Fingerling Potatoes?
YES! Any potato works here. I like to use smaller potatoes so there’s more of them in each bite, but you can certainly roast up a batch with petite yellow or Yukon potatoes if you prefer.
Why Add Veggies At All?
Because they are healthy and add a nice pop of flavor.
We chose zucchini because it’s mild and sweet, and we chose sweet peppers because they are sweeter than bell peppers. Both veggies work well because they add a nice brightness to the dish, and it’s easy to find them in the grocery store. You could even throw in some tomatoes to give the dish even more flavor and veggie goodness!
Is Olive Oil Healthy?
Yes! In moderation, the fat in olive oil is a good thing. The monounsaturated fat in olive oil has been shown to decrease LDL (bad) cholesterol and increase HDL (good) cholesterol.
What Breakfast Foods Go Well with Breakfast Potatoes?
Right off the bat we’re thinking a yummy quiche, scrambled eggs with veggies and cheese, breakfast casserole, or even just a nice fruit salad.
But truth be told, these easy oven-roasted breakfast potatoes are perfect for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or dinner! They are so good, we’re betting you’ll find multiple excuses to make them!
