Crispy Bits Breakfast Potatoes

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
lb(s) red potatoes
cup olive oil
tbsp butter, melted


Step 1

In a large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-high heat. Brush the ham lightly with honey, then fry it until the texture is firm, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet.

Step 2

Next, fry the sausage and bacon together. The sausage is ready when browned nicely, about 3 minutes per side; the bacon is cooked when crisp, 7 to 10 minutes per side. Remove from the skillet. Pour out the excess grease but do not wipe out the skillet.

Step 3

Add the second tablespoon of butter to the skillet and heat until melted. Crack the eggs into the skillet and fry for 2 minutes, sprinkling on some salt and pepper. Flip the eggs and cook them for another 45 seconds.

Step 4

Serve the eggs, sausage, bacon and ham on a platter, plus a pile of Crispy Bits Breakfast Potatoes.

Step 5

Bring salted water to a boil in a medium pot. Add the potatoes and boil until nearly fork-tender (but not falling apart), about 15 minutes. Drain and allow to dry thoroughly, then cut into wedges.

Step 6

Heat the olive oil with the butter over medium-high heat in a skillet. Add the potatoes, sprinkle on some salt and pepper and pan-fry until golden brown and crisp, 10 to 15 minutes.
