Potatoes O' Brien

Have you ever had one of those recipes that is so good and so easy to make that sometimes you forget about it?  However the flavor is so memorable your family begs for it every time you walk out into the kitchen, even if its just to wash dishes.  Anyway this recipe is one of those for me.  I have had this kicking around for some time (about 3 years at least), and I am just now bringing this recipe to now.  Hey better late than never right?  Ok so I am going to get started on this and you will amazed at the complex flavor with such simple ingredients.  


4 potatoes cubed  ( count 1 potato per person)
1/2 red pepper diced or sliced like I did 
1/2 yellow pepper sliced or diced whatever you prefer
1/4 Jalapeno diced seeds and all 
1 medium onion diced
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon of butter
Salt and Pepper to taste


Heat up the oil and butter, just until the butter melts into the oil on medium heat.  Add in the potatoes, as they start to brown put a lid over the top of them and lower the heat to a medium low.  This will ensure the inside of the potato is cooked while still keeping that crispy outside.  When your potatoes are done, drain on paper towels.  Leave the oil in the pan and add in all veggies as they get soft add the potatoes back and let simmer just until all the potatoes soak up all the flavors from the peppers.  Take off the heat and sprinkle with salt and pepper to your liking and serve.  Its really that easy and makes for a great breakfast or brunch.  Honestly though sometimes we have this for dinner too.  Pair it with poached eggs or even have it alone.  

Thank you for stopping by,

Live, Laugh and Love.
