I made these yesterday morning for an impromptu brunch. After watching my dear Rafa lose Wimbledon, I decided that brunch was the most appropriate way to ease the pain. For some reason people seem to think that brunch has to be some be fancy to do. Yes, brunch might be the greatest meal ever created, but that does not mean it has to be stressful or difficult to pull off. One of the best ways to approach brunch is to use recipes that can be prepared and cooked simultaneously.
This potato recipe is super fast and easy and can be cooking while you are making other brunch essentials like your eggs or toast. I served these potatoes with some crispy bacon I cooked in the oven and a mixed salad with some tomatoes, onions and French dressing and an egg for Mama Cooks. Brunch was ready in less than 40 minutes!
