Breakfast potatoes, or жареная картошка as this dish is called in Eastern European countries, is the best side to any breakfast! This dish is so simple, requiring just a few ingredients, but the flavor and aroma is out of this world! It’s made with diced potatoes, carrots, onion and bit of fresh dill.
I grew up eating this dish at least once a week; making it always brings back warm, childhood memories. If my dad was making breakfast or brunch, there was a 50% chance that we were having this dish. He would mix it up by adding sausage or some other type of meat to make it interesting. I serve these potatoes with poached eggs, but if you’re not a fan of running yolks (but, seriously, they’re the best!), any type of egg will work.
Don’t limit this dish only to breakfast! These potatoes can also double as a great side-dish to any meat entree. Just leave off the eggs and serve the potatoes as a side dish to your favorite steak!

Seriously drooling over this dish just looking at this photo! I can literally smell the aroma of these potatoes cooking on the stove-top. So much nostalgia in one recipe!
