This dish is a classic: Easy, filling, and very tasty! I served it as a side with grilled shrimp and corn on the cob and it was a huge hit. Would also be good at breakfast instead of hash browns.

What, no garlic, no herbs, no spices, you say? Yep, none of the above, and delicious all on its own, with just a little salt and pepper (and a mix of olive oil and bacon grease, not measured, just what I needed). Tender skinned tiny new potatoes made this particulary pretty and tasty. Read More

The red peppers do add a full juicy taste to the recipe but achieving an attractive and delectable goldness in the potatoes requires a magnificent skillet. We had it with a garden salad and French bread to some acclaim. Read More

Great recipe! Reminded me of restaurant potatoes! I used about half the oil since my pan was nonstick and it wasn't greasy at all. I don't like my potatoes quite so blackened so I cooked the potatoes in the microwave for about 6-7 minutes while I fried the onions and peppers. Read More

This was a quick and easy recipe. It was very tasty but I found it to be fairly oily not that olive oil isn't good for one anyway. I might quibble with the sliced potatoes; they seemed too big; maybe half-moons or even cubed potatoes would be better. Read More

I gave this recipe 5 stars and I'm not really sure what the problem was with the other reviews. I have struggled to make a good diner style potato and pepper dish and this is it. I used a well seasoned cast iron skillet and the potatoes came out perfectly. The peppers are tender and the onions are golden. It's fabulous. Flavor is great and it reminds me of my father-in-law's potatoes. He worked as a cook and makes the BEST breakfasts. Thanks so much for this recipe! Read More

This was a really great dish! I added some turkey kielbasa to the mix to make it more of a main dish and the added flavor was wonderful. I cut down on the oil & did a mixture of rosemary garlic and hot pepper infused oils which I sauted the potatoes onions & some fresh thyme in for about 10 mins. I then added a 1/2 c. of chicken stock & put the lid on to allow them to soften up. In a grill pan I roasted the sliced peppers to give them a nice grilled flavor then added them to the potatoes & onions. I seasoned the dish with adobo garlic salt and white pepper to taste. On the grill pan I sauted turkey kielbasa and added it to the veggie mix once it was done. I let all of the ingredients cook for about 5-10 mins more to combine the flavors and it came out awesome! We will be having this again for sure. Read More

One of my favorite mixtures everyone seems to like it. Also put in green pepper in addition to red for color and roast in oven at 400 for about 35-40 min or till potatoes done and turning the mixture once or twice. We like garlic so usually also add some fresh or powdered. This is also good with half white and half sweet potato. Read More

Growing up, this was a staple in our house, and still is today! Sometimes we add some crushed pepper flakes or mix in some hot banana peppers in w/ the red/green peppers for a bit of a kick. Simple and tasty~YUM! :) Read More
