Bangin Breakfast Potatoes

for 2 servings

    • 3 medium golden potatoes - skin on
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more if needed
    • 2 pieces of bacon
    • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
    • parsley for garnish
    • salt
    • pepper
    • old bay seasoning

Cooking Instructions

  1. 1Before you do anything, freeze your bacon slices that way when you're ready to prep, it'll be so much easier to chop!

  2. 2Wash the potatoes and cut medium dice into square pieces. To prevent any browning, place the already cut potatoes in a bowl filled with water.

  3. 3In the meantime, heat 1-2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Tilt the skillet so the oil spreads evenly.

  4. 4Once the oil is hot, drain the potatoes and add to the skillet. Season with salt, pepper, and Old Bay as needed.

  5. 5Cook for 10 minutes, stirring the potatoes often, until brown. If needed, add a tablespoon more of oil.

  6. 6Chop up the bacon and add to the potatoes. The bacon will start to render and the fat will begin to further cook the potatoes. Toss it up a bit! The bacon will take 5-6 minutes to crisp.

  7. 7Once the bacon is cooked, reduce the heat to medium-low, add the minced garlic and toss. Season once more. Add dried or fresh parsley. Control heat as needed.

  8. 8Let the garlic cook until fragrant, about one minute.

  9. 9Just before serving, drizzle over the maple syrup and toss. Let that cook another minute, giving the potatoes a caramelized effect.

  10. 10Serve in a warm bowl with a sunny side up egg!
