Perfect Brunch Potatoes

When I was growing up, my mother always cooked potatoes and onions for breakfast and I looked forward to them every time! Since I have my own family, I’m able to keep the tradition going and put my own spin on it! I’ve been cooking these potatoes for years, so I figured that I’d share the love with all of you. I know every family has their own food traditons and I want my children to rave about my potatoes and call me for the recipe when they grow up! These potatoes are great at any time of day, but I definitely prefer them with breakfast/brunch. I do believe that your family will love them, my kids (Chloe & Drew) can be picky eaters but they love these! And of course Chris loves them too! To me, their perfect, hence the name “Perfect Brunch Potatoes.”  Enjoy!
