A classic that always works – fried potatoes and eggs

What could be more delicious than a plate of crispy fried breakfast potatoes for a weekend brunch? Fried potatoes and eggs is easy to make, requires very few ingredients, and is prepared in a flash!


If you are preparing these on the stove, I recommend using a heavy bottomed skillet or a cast iron skillet to get the potatoes extra crispy. Or you could do as I do, and use a tabletop glass ceramic grill, as it has an extra large cooking service that is perfect for preparing a batch of fried potatoes. But first you’ll need to parboil the potatoes. Yep, it’s the essential step to getting the potatoes extra crispy, and it’s a fantastic time saver when it comes to preparing Sunday brunch (but why limit this to breakfast, it’s also a great dinner recipe!).

Tips for crispy fried potatoes

This recipe is easy, but still there are a couple of tips that will help guarantee the best results. Here are my most important tips:

Use a pan that is large enough so that there is enough space for the potato slices, work in batches, or use two pans. The less that the potatoes are overlapping, the better.

And feel free to add a little extra. Fat is what helps get your potatoes extra crispy.Spread the potatoes out in an even layer, and let the potatoes get golden-brown before flipping them. We want to give them a chance to crisp up, before flipping them. Plus since we are also frying mushrooms, they too taste best when they have a chance to brown a little. The spinach is added at the very end, as it only takes a minute to wilt.

Preparing the fried eggs

You can either do this after the potatoes are done, since fried eggs only take a couple minutes. OR, you can create a well, or move the potato mixture to the side and a little extra fat to the plan, crack in the eggs and fry until the white are set and cooked to your liking.

Now you are ready to dig in! Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!
