Oven Roasted Home Fries

Do you have a favorite breakfast place you frequent? Most that we have gone to always serve your eggs with a side of home fries. I swear I could just eat the home fries for breakfast. I actually have; shhhh. Oh how I love spuds. I am a total meat and potatoes kind of girl. I make a big breakfast every Sunday for our family. Unless my potatoes are in my eggs these are always on the side. The peppers and onions make the whole dish. 

You can really use any kind of potato but this time I used russet. Reds work well also.
If you are planning on a breakfast, brunch or brinner add these to you list. They are the easiest side dish to make and compliment any meal really. 


2 1/2 pounds russet potatoes, cubed

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 onion, peeled and roughly chopped

2 bell peppers, seeded and roughly chopped

1/8 cup olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano


Preheat the oven to 425°F.

In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, garlic, onion, bell peppers, olive oil, salt, cayenne pepper and oregano. 

On a parchment lined large rimmed baking sheet spread out the potato mixture evenly.

Bake for 30-40 until potatoes are nice and crispy. 

Sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper before serving.

Refrigerate or freeze any leftovers.


  1. Such a healthy way to make these, they look so good to me right now!

  2. One of my favorite things about going out for brunch are home fries, but ONLY if they are prepared like this! I hate the stringy kind, and I hate the kind that look like a patty. You've got it right!

  3. I LOVE home fries but I never thought of making them in the oven. I'm totally doing this the next time a make brinner. This will make it easier to make enough home fries for a crowd!

  4. I love Home fries and these look so yummy. Love the addition of green pepper to them.

  5. Is there anything better than home fries? I think not. These look so yummy. I love that you did these in the oven.

  6. Going to have to try this. Im a fries-a-holic! Thank you for sharing this post at City of Creative Dream's City of Links last Friday! I appreciate you taking the time to party with me. Hope to see you again this week :)
