Home Fries

Sure they’re simple, but a big pile of perfectly seasoned, crispy brown home fries is also the perfect brunch side dish. This recipe from David Hutton is easily doubled for larger crowds or halved for a casual breakfast on a lazy Sunday morning.


Servings: 4


  • 2 large Idaho potatoes, diced and blanched
  • 1/2 Spanish onion, diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup scallions, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • clarified butter

  • pepper


  1. Sauté the blanched potatoes in clarified butter until they start to brown.
  2. Add the peppers and onions and continue to sauté until they are soft and crispy. Then add the paprika and garlic powder.
  3. Finish with the scallions and season to taste with salt and pepper.
