when you break paleo, you eat potato


Weekends….where the living is easy! Β Especially when your dear husband makes you breakfast.

Nothing like breaking paleo to eat potatoes! Β  It’s allowed….every once in a while πŸ™‚

Love the american version of hash browns.Β  Quite the difference from our processed looking hash browns !Β  Nothing deep fried here! Β  An Australians take on American hash browns! Β All served in one pan!




served with Jalapeno Kransky’s, good quality bacon and a fried egg.
Serves 2-3

  • 4 medium potatoes, chopped into cubes and parboiled
  • 1 red capsicum (bell pepper), chopped into cubes
  • 2 lengths of shallots
  • good quality olive oil, a couple of lugs – probably about 2 tablesspoons
  • 2 tablespoons good quality butter – danish or cultured
  • 1/2 teaspoon himalayan pink salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon (or double if you love it) smoke paprika
  • 10 drops Tabasco sauce

Using a fry pan (or cast iron pan) put your butter and olive oil. Β (Using both means the butter doesn’t burn)Β 

In a small bowl combine the salt, pepper, cayenne and paprika. Β Put aside.

Add your parboiled potatoes and fry until slightly crispy. (To get the potatoes crispy I tend to not play with them and leave them on one side the longest and then turn. Β That way that one side will always be nice and crispy soaking up the initial butter/oil goodness)Β Add shallots and capsicums. Β Keep cooking on the stove top. Β Add more butter if needed if looks like sticks. Β Add your paprika mix to the pan and add your Tabasco. Β Stir gently.

Cook a little longer if you want nice and crispy but I find by now – its ready to go! Β Enjoy!

Serve with some crispy bacon, fried egg and some kransky’s for the perfect breakfast fry up!
