These easy roasted breakfast potatoes are a perfect side dish for breakfast or brunch! They're crispy on the outside, creamy in the middle, and seasoned to perfection with smoky, savory spices.


  • 1 pound small potatoes, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Optional sautéed onions & peppers

  • ½ teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ yellow onion, chopped into ½-inch pieces
  • 1 red pepper, chopped into ½-inch pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • cup cilantro, for serving
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the potatoes onto the sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, the smoked paprika, and pinches of red pepper flakes. Toss to coat, spread evenly on the pan, and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and crisp around the edges. Stop here and serve as-is or mix with sautéed onions and peppers.
  • Make the onions & peppers: Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, peppers, and garlic and sauté until soft and lightly browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the potatoes and sprinkle with cilantro. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve hot.
