Make ahead Easy Parmesan Breakfast Potatoes

While I called these Make ahead Easy Parmesan Breakfast potatoes, they are really just gosh darn delicious potatoes.  The fact that they are ready in under 20 minutes makes them even better.   I particularly like dishes that use easily accessible ingredients, are easy to prepare and taste really good.

These potatoes infused with sweetness from the onions, and saltiness from the parmesan cheese, are totally addictive.

A perfect side dish

One recipe, so many meals to serve it with.  Yes, these Easy Parmesan Breakfast Potatoes are great with breakfast,  they also are excellent with any of the following recipes:

Make ahead Easy Parmesan Breakfast Potatoes

Use intentional leftovers by making a double batch, removing half a few minutes before they are done, and storing them in the fridge.  They will keep for up to 4 days.   These half cooked potatoes are then finished in a skillet with oil and butter, sauteing until crisp on the outside, about 5-6 minutes.

  • 3 large baking potatoes diced
  • 1 T. water
  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium red bell pepper diced
  • ½ medium red onion diced
  • ½ t. garlic powder
  • ½ t. dried parsley
  • ½ t. dried rosemary
  • ½ t. smoked paprika
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • ¼ c. Parmesan cheese freshly grated


  • Add potato and water to a large microwave safe dish and cover. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, or just until potatoes are crisp tender, but not mushy. Do not over cook.
  • Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add red pepper and onion and sprinkle with garlic powder, parsley, rosemary, and smoked paprika. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.
  • Cook, stirring frequently, until the pepper and onion soften and develop a bit of color, approximately 3-4 minutes.
  • Drain excess moisture from the potatoes and pat dry. Transfer to the skillet and season with additional salt and black pepper, as desired. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are golden brown and slightly crispy, approximately 6-7 minutes. Season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.
  • Remove from heat and sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top of the warm potatoes. Cover just until the cheese melts and serve immediately. Enjoy!
