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.
- 2 Tablespoons butter, ghee or olive oil
- 1- 1 1/2 pounds new rose potatoes quartered
- 4 large shallots peeled and sliced
- sea salt and pepper to taste
- 3-4 eggs
- fresh parsley roughly chopped, or sliced chives
- red pepper flakes optional
Place cast iron pan on high heat. Add butter or ghee to cast iron pan. Add potatoes, cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally (lower heat if necessary)
Add shallots. Cook until shallots are caramelized and potatoes are browned and crispy (about 10 more minutes)
Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Stir.
Make 3-4 wells in potatoes with back of a large spoon, crack eggs very carefully into wells.
Cook with lid on until whites are solid and yolks are runny.
Sprinkle with parsley or chives and red pepper flakes if desired. Serve!
MAY I PLEASE ASK A LITTLE FAVOR?
This looks delicious. Love all of those crispy potatoes!
Oh my gosh, I might head into the kitchen and make these right now. This looks incredible!
We love one pan dishes! This looks like an easy yet hearty breakfast! Yum!
I love the idea of cooking the eggs right in with the potatoes! It sure will cut down on cooking time when we’re trying to feed four kids and get them out the door in the morning 🙂
Yummy! Your photos are so colorful and fun too!
Looks like I know what I’m making the family for breakfast this weekend! Thanks for the recipe!
I think I am going to make this for dinner tonight.
This looks great what an awesome breakfast idea
Oh my! That is one of my favorite breakfasts….potatoes and runny-yolk eggs.
YUM! Potatoes and eggs are one of my favorite breakfast dishes. I love that this is one pan, too. Can’t wait to make this soon!
I want to go buy a cast iron pan just to try this recipe out. Looks delicious!!!
Heading to the store to pick up potatoes now! I’m all about the less steps the better so I’ll go with new rose too! delicious!
That sounds so simple to make, I’m going to have to try it! My husband would marry me all over again if I made him that for breakfast 🙂
Very simple and wonderful recipe! It looks amazing!
Thanks Ilona! I have been thinking about that poor Iguana….
My favorite breakfast includes potatoes and eggs! I can’t wait to try this — thanks for the inspiration!
Love a delicious easy hash – yum!
This would make a fab dinner too – we love “breakfast for dinner”!
Whenever a breakfast recipe calls for potatoes, I run to make it! Potatoes are the one food that work for any meal. Your potatoes and eggs are a very delicious recipe to make and eat
This is sucha great all-in-one breakfast! Love anything made in a skillet. One quick question though – you said it can be made dairy free if you use ghee, but ghee is made from butter, so does that make it dairy free? Just trying to find out if there is something I dont know about as I dont follow a dairy free diet!
Ghee is made from butter but all the milk solids are removed so essentially it’s pure fat with no lactose, cassein or other “dairy” properties. People that are on dairy free diets can usually still consume ghee with no ill effects 🙂
O.K……You say this will serve 3 to 4….
Why show only 3 eggs in the photo ?…
Not easy to split a runny yolk !!!
Strictly for aesthetic reasons. I tried it both ways and three eggs looked better than four for photographic purposes (more potatoes could show with three eggs). Of course you can use as many or as few as you wish 🙂
Wondering if you had a large enough pan if you could add smoked turkey sausage.
I have made something similar several times and find it faster to cook the potatoes in the microwave until a bit soft. The overall preparation is quite a bit faster. For dinner I usually add some red or yellow peppers. Delicious!
I am not a big fan of the microwave, but I am sure it speeds up the process!
Thanks for the recipe-sounds delicious! Now, what are “new rose potatoes”? That’s a new one on me.
Hi Keith, You can see them in the photo. They are a small young potato with a rose colored skin. They come white as well. Very common. I bet you have seen them but never knew they were call rose potatoes:)
Ghee is prepared by simmering butter, which is churned from cream, and removing the liquid residue. Spices can be added for flavor. The texture, colour, and taste of ghee depend on the quality of the butter, source of the milk used in the process and the duration of the boiling.
Ghee IS a dairy product.
Ghee is made from butter which yes is a dairy product. But because all milk solids are removed and only the fat is left those with dairy intolerances can still eat it. It is the milk solids and not the fat that cause a problem.
I found this recipe from a simple web search. It was easy, quick, tasty and filling…THANK YOU!!!
Very tasty!! I will make this again for sure!
I try this recipe. very tasty.
This hit the spot, I added some spinach and it was delish!
I have no shallot, is this essential or can I miss or replace? I have onion 🙈
Absolutely! An onion will work well!
Yummy! That’s looks so nice🥰
Easy to make and very delicious! Thanks for the recipe 🙂
You are so welcome Yvette!
Boiled potatoes or raw ?
The most perfect breakfast! I love this!
Made this today, it tasted great! I, myself, like a bit of heat, so I added some jalapenos, finished with shredded pepper Jack cheese, and put some sriracha on it.👍🏼👍🏼
Sounds fabulous! I am always a fan of adding heat!
Is there an alternative for parsley
Sure, you could use chives or just skip it:)
