Definitely spicy! I did cut back on the oil a bit to crisp up my potatoes and added a little garlic powder to the mix. One thing I didn't do was cook my scrambled eggs in oil but made them my usual way. Overall very good with a side of whole grain toast and OJ. Read More

Very simple but lacking something. Peppers, onions, garlic, cheese, ...something. Great idea to nuke the potatoes before frying. Read More

Really great recipe! You definitely should microwave the potatoes before sauteeing them. I tried it previously without prior nuking but then it took an hour before they were cooked. I fried them with an onion and 2 cloves of garlic in addition to the spices. Also I added paprika and cayenne pepper. When the potatoes were just about done I scrambled the eggs (with black pepper; without salt or oil) and added them to the potato mixture. Tastes great! Read More

Pretty tasty. I chopped up my raw potato first then 'par boiled' it in the micro (put it in a bowl with a little water in the bottom then partially covered and microwaved for about 5 minutes) and finished the dices in the pan with olive oil and the spices. I didn't peel my potato but it's a very thin-skinned garden variety so I don't think it mattered. I also added cheese to my eggs because that's how I roll. Yum! Read More

I used cubed leftover baked potatoes in this so I wouldn't have to parboil the potatoes. This was plenty for my husband and I for breakfast with WW toast on the side and a little salsa sour cream and cheese. GREAT hangover breakfast. The potatoes had great flavor. I'd make this again. Read More

Really good and flavorful...this is a nice change from regular scrambled eggs. I pan-fried the potatoes added tomatoes and doubled the spices for delicious scrambled eggs! Read More

bismillahirrahmanirrahim excellent -- made this for a group of guys yesterday morning and everyone loved it although i also made a lot of changes adding muenster cheese using butter instead of oil adding milk to the eggs to make them fluffier and using seasoned salt on the potatoes instead of the other spices (just chili powder in the eggs). i also thought i'd be a purist and fry the potatoes but it was taking SO long i had to take them out of the pan and microwave them -- but using the microwave makes this recipe so quick and so easy that i made it again for myself even though i was feeling extremely lazy; it's really that easy and good.

I enjoyed this for breakfast. I didn't bother with microwaving the potatoes because they don't take that long to cook in the skillet. I still warmed peanut oil up then I added the spices I used crushed red pepper flakes cumin paprika chili powder cayenne pepper and seasoned salt. I "fried" the seasonings then added the diced potatoes. I crisped them up then covered and cooked until they were softened. I have a cold so I didn't think they were spicy at all but my mom tasted them and couldn't finish them she said they were too spicy! Can't wait to make again when this cold goes away. Read More

believe it or not-even my 5 year old liked these potatoes! they didn't taste as spicy as i had thought but were very good. i also skipped the nuking of the potato and fried them up from the raw stage in the skillet. deee-licious! will definately make again! the eggs could use the addition of some of your favorite cheese! bon appetit!
