Where do I even start with these crispy little perfect potatoes? Not even kidding, I make these for breakfast and make extra so we can enjoy them for dinner during the week. I like to serve them with a rotisserie chicken, side of vegetables and a salad. Such a simple dinner that the family LOVES.

Be sure to try these with a side of scrambled eggs in the mornings or inside a frittata like my newest Cheddar Potato Bacon Frittata coming first thing Wednesday!
