How to Make Crispy One Pan Potatoes:

Let’s start with the taters! I like to use new rose potatoes in the recipe, basically because I am lazy and there is no peeling required. But also because they taste amazing. I cook them in butter or ghee until the edges are brown and crispy…

…then I make wells with the back of a spoon and crack the eggs right into the wells, cover with a lid and cook until the whites are set and the yolks are runny. This breakfast is to die for!

The Recipe: Crispy One Pan Potatoes with Eggs

What you will need: I prefer using a cast iron pan to make potatoes really crispy. I love Maldon Sea Salt and buy the tub to save money. This recipe is grain, gluten and those with dairy intolerances or who are on Whole 30 can use ghee instead of butter.
