Breakfast is the most important meal of the day — and it can be the most appetizing with potatoes. The potato is the star ingredient of many brunch and breakfast side dishes. Paired with seasonings, vegetables, eggs, meat and more, a potato-based dish can make a filling and satisfying start to the day. We have several brunch menu ideas to enhance your offerings and please your customers.
Potato hash is a Southern classic with many hearty ingredients — diced potatoes, onion, bell pepper, garlic, seasonings and meat, like ham. This dish will be a popular comfort food with your customers.
This savory breakfast is made by browning the potatoes, vegetables and meat in a skillet, then adding your seasonings. Serve with eggs, bacon or more vegetables, and garnish with chives and oregano. For a Cajun twist, use sour cream and Cajun seasoning in the hash.
Sheet pan potato hash makes large portions, so you can feed a crowd and please them, too. Cook a sheet pan hash by tossing sliced or diced potatoes, vegetables, oil and seasonings. Spread across a baking sheet, and roast in the oven until the potatoes are tender. In the last 10 minutes, crack eggs on top of the hash.
A hash brown casserole features hash brown potatoes, cheese, soup, sour cream, breadcrumbs and seasonings. This recipe elevates common hash potatoes into a delicious and filling main course or side dish.
Make this dish by combining all ingredients, except the breadcrumbs and some of the cheese, then spread the mixture into a 2.5-quart baking dish. Top it off with the remaining cheese and breadcrumbs and bake in the oven. It pairs well with eggs and breakfast meat, like bacon or sausage.
Switch up the classic pancake breakfast with potato pancakes. This recipe uses hash brown potatoes, flour, eggs and seasonings to create a pancake from potatoes instead of batter. This dish has culinary roots in Polish, German, Irish, Jewish, Lithuanian and Czech cuisines.
Make potato pancakes by combining the ingredients in a large bowl, then frying the pancake in oil in a skillet until browned. Garnish with breakfast meats, vegetables, Hollandaise sauce, cheese or chives.
You can use potatoes to make scones, a breakfast classic. Potatoes make the scones more filling and savory, with butter, flour and salt for a fluffy texture and savory flavor.
To make potato scones, boil and mash whole peeled potatoes. Add butter, salt and flour to create a dough. Divide into sections and fry each in a skillet until browned. Serve with bacon, eggs and fried tomatoes.
