I always, ALWAYS eat my breakfast potatoes with ketchup. Or should I say I have ketchup with a side of breakfast potatoes? I can’t help that I love ketchup so much, I think I was born that way.

By the way, Trader Joe’s makes my favorite ketchup BY FAR. What’s your go-to brand?

Growing up, my mom always used to tell me I was ruining her potatoes whenever I doused them with ketchup. I told her it made them that much better.

It was pretty common for her to serve us breakfast potatoes on the weekends. In fact, I think my brother and I lived for them. They were heavily flavored and bright orange from all the delicious spices in there. My mom often made them with sazon spices and in a skillet, and to this day I still dream of their deliciousness. In fact, every time I see her I request her breakfast potatoes with over-medium eggs and creamy, ripe avocado and a side of my beloved ketchup.

These potatoes are my own version of mom’s classic breakfast potato recipes.

They’re drizzled with olive oil, then coated in garlic powder, cumin, coriander, turmeric, paprika and cayenne. Add a little salt and pepper, then roast them to crispy, delicious perfection in the oven!
