Home Fries (Gluten Free!)

I made these yesterday morning for an impromptu brunch. After watching my dear Rafa lose Wimbledon, I decided that brunch was the most appropriate way to ease the pain. For some reason people seem to think that brunch has to be some be fancy to do. Yes, brunch might be the greatest meal ever created, but that does not mean it has to be stressful or difficult to pull off. One of the best ways to approach brunch is to use recipes that can be prepared and cooked simultaneously.

This potato recipe is super fast and easy and can be cooking while you are making other brunch essentials like your eggs or toast. I served these potatoes with some crispy bacon I cooked in the oven and a mixed salad with some tomatoes, onions and French dressing and an egg for Mama Cooks. Brunch was ready in less than 40 minutes!

Home Fries (serves 4 – add 1 potato for every 2 people)

  • 1/4 butter
  • 2 russet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black peper
  • 1/2 white or yellow onion, diced
Melt butter in large pan over medium heat. Add potatoes and coat. Cover for 5 minutes. Add garlic, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir to coat evenly. Cover and cook for another 15 minutes. Remove lid and add in onions. Increase heat to medium-high and cook for another 10 minutes. Stir frequently. Cook until potatoes are tender and have reached desired crispiness (I like mine a little crispy, so I left them on for about 15 minutes instead of 10.)
