My husband loves potatoes, and when I am feeling nice I will make him breakfast potatoes–and through the years I came upon this method for making them fast making them crispy and using only 1 pan.
I think the texture of hashbrowns is always better when you start with cooked, but when I have no leftovers it is just too much in the morning to have all these pots going. So one day I was making pot stickers and it occurred to me that I might be able to apply the same method to potatoes... and I tried it and I liked it. You need a saute pan with a lid. —Aliwaks

What You'll Need
  • 2.5 cups Diced potato (any kind you like can even mix in sweet potatoes)
  • 1 cup Diced yellow onion
  • 2 Cloves sliced garlic
  • .05 cups Diced red, yellow, orange an/or red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Minced jalepeno
  • 3 tablespoons Vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon Smoked paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 cups Julienned lacinato (dinosaur) Kale
  • 1 cup Shredded cheese of Choice (I like Fontina or Monteray Jack)
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  1. Heat oil in pan over medium heat
  2. Add potatoes, peppers, garlic and onions, best if they can cover the pan in one layer, buy if they can't its not tragic, season with smoked paprika, salt & pepper
  3. Pour 1 cup cold water into pan
  4. Pour 1 cup cold water and let it come to a boil
  5. add kale on top of potatoes (Don't stir) Lower heat and cover, cook 10-15 minutes (it will depend on your pan and if they are in one layer or not
  6. Check to see if the water has evaporated, and that the potatoes are brown and they are tender. If that has occurred, take a spatula and flip everything over so it browns on the the other side.
  7. Cover with Cheese & Thyme leaves, then run under the broiler until a brown/bubbly cheesy top, if you have no broiler or don;t care to deal with it you can just cover the pan again until the cheese melts
  8. Sausage or any other smokey meats ( chunks of pancetta, pulled pork, brisket) make a great add-on. Mushrooms are a great add-in as well, I like them with mushrooms and Gruyere but no peppers. I like to top these with fried egg.
