I sometimes like to mix things up with breakfast.
Normally, I’m a fan of sweet breakfast items, like oatmeal or pancakes. But sometimes I’ll get in a mood and want something savory with vegetables.
And because I’m someone that gets overwhelmed easily (Hello ADHD), I like meals with only a few simple ingredients and not much prep work.
These Breakfast Potatoes use a bag of frozen peppers and onions to make the cooking process easier! Although I still have to dice the potatoes, I feel better knowing that this is ALL I have to do.
These potatoes are a good option for meal prep on a Sunday afternoon to eat from all week! They have a nice kick from the chili powder and are a hearty breakfast idea.

- Red potatoes
- Bag of frozen peppers and onions (This has a mixture of green pepper and red peppers)
- Fresh garlic
- Olive oil
- Seasoned salt
- Chili powder
- Black pepper
Why this is good for you
When I make recipes, I generally look for ingredients that make me feel my best. I love cinnamon rolls for breakfast; but I know that eating just that won’t make my body feel good later in the day.
Here’s why I love this recipe:
- Potatoes are a good source of dietary fiber. They’re higher in carbs which give you energy, and the fiber helps slow down the energy absorption.
- Bell peppers are high in Vitamin C and other important vitamins to keep us healthy and boost our immune system.
- Olive oil is a heart-healthy fat that keeps us full longer and may help lower cholesterol!
Can I use fresh bell peppers and onion instead?
Absolutely! I used a bag of frozen pre-chopped produce from the grocery store, because it saved me some time and stress. But you can definitely slice your own.
Use any combination of green bell peppers, red bell pepper, and even orange and yellow bell peppers to get a variety of flavors and vitamins!
Other ways to use bell peppers in breakfast
Honestly, bell peppers are some of the easiest vegetables to use in breakfast. Here are some other ways you can use them:
- Mixed right in with some scrambled eggs or egg whites
- Breakfast quesadillas with eggs and cheese
- Breakfast stuffed peppers with sausage and eggs
- Breakfast burritos
How to make
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Dice the potatoes into small cubes and place them into a large bowl.
Add the peppers and onions, garlic, olive oil, seasoned salt, chili powder, and pepper, and stir to combine.
Transfer to one or two large baking sheets and spread out in a single layer. Bake for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, remove from the oven and stir, then bake for another 15 minutes until the potatoes are fork tender.
Divide onto plates and serve with your favorite protein.
How to store
Once these potatoes have cooled to room temperature, store in an airtight container in the fridge. Use up within 3-5 days.
You can reheat the next morning in the microwave, in 30-second increments. Or reheat on the stovetop in a large skillet, on medium heat.
What to serve with this
I like to have a protein with these potatoes! The extra protein boost keeps me full much longer. Here are some examples:
- Scrambled eggs
- Greek yogurt
- Cottage cheese
- Breakfast sausage or other breakfast meat
The great thing about this recipe is that it’s also very customizable. You can top the potatoes with any of your favorite toppings!
- Sour cream
- Hot sauce
- Different types of cheese (Pepper jack would add a nice kick!)
