This procedure gives you boldly flavored potatoes that are crunchy and creamy. Because home fries usually pair up with delicious but mild eggs, they need big flavor. These get a hit of sweet paprika, pungent garlic powder, and tangy, zesty Worcestershire sauce. If you like yours spicy, add 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper to the spice blend, or just drizzle them with some hot sauce on your plate. A cast-iron pan works best here to put ample crust on the potatoes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place potatoes in a medium saucepan; cover by an inch with cold water. Bring to a boil; lower heat and simmer 2 minutes or until potatoes are not quite tender. Drain well; set aside.

Step 2

Combine paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Heat a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-high; add 1 1/2 teaspoons oil to pan. Add onion and bell pepper; sauté 5 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp-tender. Stir 1 teaspoon paprika mixture into onion mixture; toss well. Place in a small bowl; stir in Worcestershire. Keep warm.

Step 3

Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to pan over medium-high. Add potatoes; cook 8 minutes or until well browned and crisp, stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining paprika mixture; toss well to coat evenly. Stir in onion mixture. Serve immediately.
