Sharing is caring!


Hey everyone, this is Lauren from Tastes Better From Scratch and I’m so excited to share my favorite breakfast potatoes recipe with you!

My husband and I love making a big yummy breakfast together on Sundays. I usually want something fancy/easy like Eggs Benedict or Strawberry Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, but he always wants a “grand slam” breakfast! I think the name comes from what he would order off the menu at Denny’s. He’s a total guy when it comes to what he orders at restaurants. Think steak and potatoes, chicken fingers, burgers etc.  And his version of a grand slam has to include pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, and these amazing breakfast potatoes! Sometimes I’ll even throw together some easy orange julius to drink and he’s truly in heaven! 


For someone who doesn’t usually care for breakfast that much during the week, our Sunday morning grand slam breakfasts have become his favorite meal!


I’ll be honest, a simple homemade grand slam breakfast tastes SO much better than anything you’d order at a restaurant, and there’s nothing cheaper than breakfast food! These breakfast potatoes are super simple but the flavor combination of the tomatoes and diced veggies is amazing! Plus, they’re roasted in the oven which ensures they’re cooked perfectly and come up crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
