The Best (and Easiest) Breakfast Potatoes

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

Goooooood morning!

At the start of every week, I make a big batch of breakfast potatoes for Mal and me. They’re great as a quick meal, especially along side some eggs at breakfast or mixed into a simple meat + veggie bowl at lunch or dinner. (I just reheat them in the microwave or toaster oven.) They have soooo much flavor (thanks to some Montreal Steak Seasoning) and they’re a nutritious addition to just about any meal. But the best part about these potatoes (besides how delicious they taste, obviously) is how easy they are to make. Check out my simple recipe below!

The Best Breakfast Potatoes




Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.


Chop potatoes into 1-inch-ish pieces and place in a large mixing bowl.


Drizzle olive oil over potatoes and mix well. (The potatoes should be well-coated with olive oil, so feel free to add more oil if needed.) Then, shake Montreal Steak Seasoning all over the potatoes””add as much or as little as you’d like. I love the stuff, so I go crazy with it!


Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and then pour potatoes onto it and spread them evenly.


Bake potatoes for 20-25 minutes, tossing after 10 minutes or so. After 20-25 minute, turn the oven up to broil and then cook for another 5-7 minutes or until potatoes are crispy on the edges.

Remove potatoes from the oven, allow them to cool slightly, and enjoy! Potatoes can be stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 5-ish days. Just reheat in the microwave or toaster oven!

Recipe makes approximately 8 (3/4 cup) servings

Question of the Day

It’s a new year, and I know a lot of you guys are eating healthy this morning, so what did you have for breakfast? Please share! 



  1. My famous butternut squash spinach breakfasts bake was my breakfast today. It’s become a regular this winter in the breakfast scene along with turkey sweet potato casserole. I love that I can make a breakfast bake and it lasts me through the week.

  2. i made a protein shake. i love potatoes, like i used to say they were my favorite food – love how versatile they are and how many different ways you can make them, but for some reason eating them for breakfast just isn’t my thing. lunch, dinner, sure! just not breakfast, don’t know why!

  3. Over Christmas, my aunt made something similar with regular and sweet potatoes, but also pink and purple potatoes too! I never thought of mixing different type potatoes in a recipe before, but it’s so beautiful and delicious.

  4. I’m a big fan of the McCormack Grillhouse Steakhouse Onion Burger seasoning. It goes great on everything. great zip to it.

  5. I love breakfast potatoes! I hadn’t thought about making a batch to reheat. Great idea.

    I had a protein shake this morning, but I’m planning to do some plan ahead breakfast meals to freeze this weekend. Breakfast burritos, breakfast sandwiches, egg muffins, baked oatmeal. I’ll be adding your potatoes to my lineup, for sure!

  6. Thanks for sharing this. I keep seeing your posts where you have potatoes for breakfast & wondered how you did that with such frequency. I love roasted veggies – need to make time to do this soon!

    My breakfast is usually a protein shake – some days with PB2 in it, some days with almond extract in it.

    Happy New Year!

  7. I had two breakfasts since I was up at 5am with the little guy. Chobani greek yogurt with oats at 630am and then I just had some egg beaters with a sunny side egg cooked in the middle and a sprinkle of cheese, so good! OH and can’t forget my hazelnut coffee with almond milk!

    Its been a good morning so far! I just started getting back into running so I feel like my eating habits are going to get back on track too! Just wish it was warmer here in Mass. I’m not a winter runner so I’m back at it on the treadmill (at home)! Just trying to juggle when I can run with caring for our little guy and my husbands work schedule, it is not easy!

  8. Mmmm Montreal steak spice!! Such a great idea to put this on potatoes…I love turnips so would probably throw some of those and some butternut squash in the mix too! Will be trying soon!


  9. I had pb oatmeal this morning. It blew up all over my microwave though so I only got to eat about half of it:-(
    That made me realize that I haven’t made oatmeal since before Thanksgiving, since the bowls from my Christmas dishes apparently aren’t deep enough to cook oatmeal in.

  10. 1 fried egg, 4oz of ground turkey w/ hot sauce and a piece of pumpernickel bread with butter. Hindsight.. i wish i had some spinach to add to the egg and turkey! oh well. The potatoes sound delish! Definitely going to try them.

  11. Those look yummy. I love roasting sweet potatoes for dinners but have never eaten them for breakfast. I had my usual hard boiled eggs with peanut butter toast this morning. An oldie but goodie!

  12. I’ve got potatoes in the oven right now – coated with olive oil, garlic, and rosemary.
    Breakfast: ww english muffin w/ pb, raspberries, coffee.

  13. I looked up the seasoning on Amazon and saw they also make one called Smokehouse Maple that sounds really good. I’ll be looking for these when I go shopping later since I now need some potatoes to make for tomorrow’s breakfast!

  14. This is perfect timing. I am really really tired of my typical breakfast routine, so I’ve been skipping it lately which makes me a disaster at lunch!

  15. Oatmeal cooked with one chopped apple, almond milk, and topped with a teaspoon of coconut oil. It was good!

  16. yumm! love the combo of sweet and russet potatoes! i always eat the same thing for breakfast: fruit + toast with nutbutter or fruit + oatmeal. i’m boring when it comes to breakfast but it always tastes good and keeps me going!

  17. Love the mixed potato idea! And Montreal Steak seasoning is so good, my husband’s been using it on burgers for year!

    As for breakfast, plain Greek yogurt, fresh fruit and homemade gingerbread granola!

  18. Yum! Great idea to roast!
    Sometimes I parboil/microwave and make these on the stovetop, but always with Montreal steak seasoning, paprika and wostershire sauce.
    I miss my toaster oven, that is a great way to reheat!

  19. Thanks for sharing! I love the recipes your post; they are simple and delicious. I will admit I make the sweet potato fries and maple glazed carrots from your website regularly:-)

  20. Happy New Year! I’m just catching up on CnC after being away for the holidays. Feels good to catch up with a familiar friend! 😉

    I’m carrying over an old favorite from last year – slow-cooker steel cut oats with apples. Cook on Sunday and feast on cold oatmeal all week. I love your breakfast recipe because it makes great comfort food. Perfect for these cold, January days! Maybe that will make an appearance at breakfast over the weekend!
