    Liz Dicing Potatoes

    To start, you’ll want to cut around 24 Little Potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Depending on size, that means either halving or quartering them.

    Quick Cooking Tip: To ensure even browning and caramelization, it’s a great idea to par-boil the potatoes about 3 minutes before sautéing them with the other veggies.

    Liz Dicing Onions

    Speaking of veggies, use whatever you have on hand! Onions and peppers are always in our kitchen but this dish would work great with shallots, Anaheim peppers, cherry tomatoes and more.

    Our potatoes of choice for any breakfast hash is always Creamer potatoes from The Little Potato Company. The buttery flavor and creamy texture balance perfectly with the caramelized peppers and onions. Plus, they’re easy to use because you don’t have to peel them and they’re pre-washed.

    While the veggies are cooking, I like to cook my eggs-to-order in a separate frying pan. My kids like them sunny side up so that’s usually what we do but scrambled would be great too.

        1. Made this today and it was a hit with my family. Thanks for sharing. I used assorted veggies and a bit of extra hamburger left over from last night. My go to spice this summer is a Greek blend. Lovely and perfect with eggs over easy and a chilled watermelon salad.

    1. I think your nutrition calculator has a glitch. There’s no way a dish made of veggies and 1 Tbsp olive oil has 501 calories per serving with 26g of fat. Even when you add the egg.
