Usually, Kamau breakfasts aren't normal. We always have to do something super unique and creative, totally out of the box. But on one Thursday morning, I was blank. Totally, completely blank. On those days, you usually do something a little more average, say eggs, bacon, and toast. As I searched the web for simplistic breakfasts to do super fast, I wasn't really finding a lot of recipes and meal plans to my liking, so I decided to do a family favorite; fried breakfast potatoes.
After looking up recipe after recipe of every conceivable type of breakfast potato, I found the most simple and quick recipe of them all. It only took 30 minutes, and it was amazing and took very few ingredients. So I'm looking forward to y'all getting to try my Slaaay’n Breakfast Potatoes.
So I started with five small white potatoes. I cut them in half longways twice and then cut them into triangles. Then I rinsed them off in a colander really well. I got a big skillet and melted 3 tablespoons of buttaaaa (my favorite beverage), on medium heat. (My parents like died when I told them how much butter was in the potatoes, but honestly, its not that much…..I think)
Then you just toss the potatoes into the skillet (make sure that you shake the colander over the sink to get most of the water off). Then just season to taste. I used pepper, salt, and lemon pepper, just to be safe, but feel free to add anything else. I also added half of a small onion. This is an excellent addition that I would definitely recommend, but to each his own. Dice them and toss them in with the potatoes. After you season, put a top on the pan for ‘bout 10 minutes.
Make sure you get a spatula and start flipping kinda frequently so that you get a nice, crunchy, brown on most of the triangles. Then you can take the top off for another 10 minutes. Remember not to just throw on a bucket-load of seasoning. That is the best way to ruin a breakfast. Trust me. I know. Like I said, just keep tasting. You can always add more, but you can't take away.
They turned out amaaaazingly awesome. It's definitely something I would do again, 'cause its so stinkn’ easy. The only thing is that they were so good that we didn’t have enough. Have you ever had the problem when you make a little bit and it turns out awesome and then when you make a million and they taste like cardboard? I made it for eight people and I think that I would have added another big potato. It probably could have fed six. So there it is. The recipe for the most stinking awesome potatoes ever.
