I love potatoes and I’ve found it’s one vegetable my entire family will eat and enjoy! My children could eat mashed potatoes at every meal (and so could I)! But we don’t just like them mashed, we like them fried, baked, and shredded! Because we eat them so often, variety is king. That’s why this Potatoes O’Brien recipe is an emerging favorite in my household!
Potatoes O’Brien are great; they can be served as a side dish or as breakfast potatoes (or even brunch). The crispy texture from the skillet with the tender inside makes the potatoes taste amazing.
Traditional Potatoes O’Brien combine non-sweet potatoes and red and green bell peppers. In this recipe, I use fingerling potatoes for the color contrast and I add a touch of red onion for a slight sweetness as well as a hint of garlic. This is an easy pan fried potatoes recipe and makes for a delicious dish and an amazing aroma. Try it out and let me know what you think!
