These Easy Baked Breakfast Potatoes are crispy on the outside and perfectly tender on the inside. They’re easy to make and made with pantry ingredients.
This recipe costs about $3.26 to make six servings. That works out to be approximately $0.55 per serving.
These breakfast potatoes are generously seasoned with aromatic spices like garlic, smokey paprika, and oregano. Whether you make these potatoes during the week or weekend, your family will love them!
Because these breakfast potatoes are baked on a baking sheet, they are baked to golden perfection with crispy outsides and fluffy insides. Season the potatoes and bake them. They are the perfect side dish for your meal and are bursting with flavor.
They are healthier than traditional Breakfast Potatoes because we are baking and not frying the potatoes. I love making these on lazy weekends for brunch, breakfast for dinner during the week, and even in the morning before school and work.

Serve: You can keep these out for about two hours before they need to be covered and refrigerated.
Store: Place leftovers in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
Freeze: Once cooled, place the potatoes in a freezer-safe container and freeze for 3-4 months.
Reheat From Frozen: Place the frozen potatoes on a baking sheet in a 350-degree oven. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until heated through and crisp.
Sometimes you may hear Breakfast Potatoes referred to as Country Potatoes, House Fries, or even American Fries. Whatever you call them, I call them delicious.
If the potatoes are too wet after washing them, that may cause them to become mushy instead of crispy while baking. Just be sure to pat the potatoes dry after washing them to avoid mushy potatoes. The extra water can cause them to become mushy.
