There are probably as many ways to cook breakfast potatoes as there are to cook eggs. Around here we call breakfast potatoes, "home fries". Different parts of the country have different names and recipes.
Since tomato season is coming soon I thought I'd post one of my originals.
4- Med. to Large potatoes
2- medium tomatoes.
1- Med onion
1-Table spoon dry basil
1- Teaspoon garlic powder.
3/4 cup olive oil.
Cut potatoes into dice size pieces. Leave the skin on. Put these in a micro wave bowl. Pour half of the oil on top. Micro wave on high uncovered for 7.5 minutes. Stir and micro wave for another 7.5 mins.
Dice the tomatoes and onion. Sauté in a frying pan with the rest of the olive oil, garlic powder and basil. When the onions are transparent it is time to add the microwaved potatoes. Mix all together while cooking. Cook until the potatoes are browned. You might have to add a little oil. Serves 4.
