These Crispy Homestyle Breakfast Potatoes are the one-pan no-fuss meal that has us excited to get out of bed in the morning!

Chances are you have had some version of this recipe before. The concept of roasted potatoes and veggies together in perfect harmony is by no means unfamiliar territory. Some of my earliest memories are of digging potatoes in the garden with my mother and knowing that the final product would be well worth the effort!

We love to whip up a big batch of these crispy potatoes and veggies early in the week, store them in our favorite glass containers. and enjoy them for days to come. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner. In other words, these Crispy Homestyle Breakfast Potatoe are the perfect recipe to incorporate into your batch-cooking repetoiré. They are packed with healthy vitamins and nutrients, and easy to reheat and enjoy.


























Bell Peppers

Red bell peppers don’t get nearly enough attention for their vitamin C content! They contain almost double the amount that oranges and citrus fruits contain. Try incorporating them with iron-rich foods to help increase the non-heme or plant-based iron sources.

Red bell peppers also contain large amounts of carotenoids, vitamin E, and vitamin C, which together provide anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. They also contain great amounts of fiber which helps support digestion, keeps us fuller for a longer period of time and releases a steady flow of energy.


Mushrooms have been shown to help support the immune system due to their high amounts of minerals, especially selenium, zinc, and manganese. All of these minerals are incredibly important for immune function.

Mushrooms also contain unique molecules that help prevent oxidative damage to our DNA cells and proteins. Mushrooms are great for fighting inflammation in the body, such as in type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.

Balance is Key

We love to start our day off with a perfectly balanced breakfast, and so should you! Here are some of our favorite breakfast recipes that go perfectly with these Crispy Homestyle Breakfast Potatoes.
