Home Fries Recipe

This recipe for home fries features red potatoes, onions, and red and green bell peppers. I like to leave the skins on the potatoes to give the home fries a little bit of color and texture.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 4 large red potatoes, cut into ½-inch dice
  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into ½-inch dice
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into ½-inch dice
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • Kosher salt, to taste


  1. Heat a cast-iron skillet or other heavy bottomed skillet over medium heat.

  2. Melt the butter, then add the onion and garlic and sauté until slightly translucent, about 2 minutes;

  3. Add the diced red and green peppers and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon.

  4. Add the potatoes and cook, stirring frequently, for another 15 to 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender and lightly browned.

  5. Season to taste with paprika and Kosher salt.
Makes about 4 generous portions of home fries.

Perfect home fries!, Member toastytee

I never thought home fries could be so easy to make. They were better than the home fries at our local breakfast place. Divine! Will definitly make this recipe again.
