Cassie'S Italian Home Fries Recipe @pinch

Cassie's Italian home fries are ideal for anyone who wants a hearty and delicious side dish for breakfast or brunch. The potatoes are crispy on the outside, and the inside is tender. Sausage, along with garlic, peppers, onions, and mushrooms, adds a ton of flavor. Paprika and Italian seasoning are subtle. Fry or scramble eggs and serve these home fries for a comforting breakfast. My family loves these for breakfast. So tasty, yet simple. I make these for dinner as well.

Ingredients :
  • 4 medium potatoes
  • sliced
  • 1/2 pound(s) Italian sausage or your favorite breakfast sausage
  • I have used all different meats
  • today I used bulk sausage
  • 2 - 3 clove(s) garlic
  • thinly sliced
  • 1/2 medium green bell pepper
  • chopped
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper
  • chopped
  • 1/4 cup(s) chopped fresh mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 medium onion
  • chopped
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon(s) onion powder
  • 1/2 cup(s) shredded Italian 6 cheese blend or whatever cheese you prefer
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) paprika
  • pinch(es) Italian seasoning
  • - salt and pepper
  • to taste
  • - oil to saute
  • I use olive oil
Intructions :
  • In a large skillet
  • saute the peppers
  • onions
  • garlic
  • and mushrooms in enough oil that they won't stick. When soft and starting to brown, remove and drain on a paper towel.
  • In the same skillet
  • crumble and brown the sausage until it's no longer pink. Drain on a paper towel.
  • Add more oil to the pan. Add sliced potatoes
  • salt
  • pepper
  • paprika
  • Italian seasoning
  • and onion powder. I sometimes leave the skin on the potatoes and par-cook in the microwave for about 5 minutes. They cook much faster that way. And the starch makes them brown nicely.
  • Continue cooking until potatoes are tender and getting brown. Add the crumbled sausage and veggies back to the skillet. Mix well.
  • When potatoes are cooked
  • sprinkle evenly with cheese. Cover until the cheese is melted.
  • Serve with eggs or leave the meat out and serve as a side with whatever meats for dinner. These are good any time of the day. I sometimes scramble eggs and pour them over the top of the potatoes and mix throughout. Then add the cheese and melt. Yum! Add some hot pepper flakes for a bit of a kick.
