Learn Chef John’s technique for creating breakfast potatoes that are perfectly crisp on the outside and baked potato-soft in the center! You can slate yourself for success by choosing a Russet or Yukon Gold potato for optimal crispiness. Then microwave to cook just until tender, cool and cut into home fries size! Cook in oil and butter then be sure to season with garlic and onion powders, paprika and cayenne peppers, and salt and pepper. Cook until crusted, crispy and beautifully browned, then load up your plate alongside eggs and toast for a perfectly great breakfast! Get the recipe for Chef John's Quick & Crispy Home Fries.
