Spicy Sweet Potato Home Fries
It’s probably because I’m from Idaho, but I do indeed love potatoes. Especially with breakfast. In fact, I’d say that hash-browns and home fries are my favorite breakfast foods…er, vices. Even better if they’re sweet potatoes, the healthy super-star of the potato family. These babies pack tons of vitamins and nutrients, and they’re quite high in fiber and delicious to boot! Yes sir, I love me some potatoes for breakfast.
These sweet potato home fries are a quick, easy, and flavorful addition to any weekend breakfast. I seasoned these with black pepper, Adobo, and a little bit of both sweet and spicy (super hot!) paprika that I bought in Budapest when I was there (you could easily use regular paprika, cayenne pepper, or any other favorite spices to jazz up these home fries).
These potatoes are also great as a side dish for any dinner or brunch as well. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
