Breakfast Potatoes

Servings : Serves 3-4

These easy peasy spicy potatoes are delicious served at breakfast time on those days when you want an especially hearty breakfast meal. The best think about them is that they are amazingly easy to prepare as all the various components can be boiled/chopped/diced the night before and then quickly whipped up in the morning. They taste heavenly with a side of eggs or sausage or beans and toast. I love using these in my Breakfast Burritos too!


  • 4 potatoes, boiled, peeled and cubed
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper/capsicum, cubed
  • 1 small green bell pepper/capsicum, cubed
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • pinch of turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin powder
  • 2 tbsp. chopped coriander
  • 1 chopped chilli (optional)
  • juice of 1/2 a lime/lemon


Warm 1 tbsp. oil in a fying pan, then add the onions and cubed bell pepper/capsicum. Stir until soften and begin to turn colour. Remove them into a bowl. Add the second tbsp of oil in a pan, heat it up and add the boiled potato cubes, cook until they colour lightly. Sprinkle the salt, peper, turmeric, cumin powder and chopped chilli. You can add a small pinch of paprika powder if you like. Then add back the bell pepper and onion mixture and toss everything together.

Finally squeeze the lemon in and sprinkle the chopped coriander. Stir and turn off the heat. Serve with accompaniments of your choice.

Enjoy! 🙂
