Easy Crispy Home Fries in the Oven Recipe – YUM!

I love home fries, especially when they are extra crispy. I always find it hard to get them that way on top of the stove, especially without using a lot of oil. This recipe is easy to make and it cooks in the oven while you are preparing the rest of your meal. It’s also a good way to add in some veggies with the peppers!

4 medium potatoes
1/2 green or yellow bell pepper, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
small onion, slivered
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
salt and pepper to taste
optional: garlic powder, sage, or other seasonings you like

Heat oven to 450 degrees.  Dice the potatoes into cubes about 1/2 inch on each side.  Mix potatoes with peppers and onions along with the oil and seasonings.  Spread on a greased rimmed baking pan or cookie sheet.  Bake for 40-50 minutes, flipping once or twice, or until crispy.

  1. I have never considered using peppers with a potato dish like that. I would have to make the slices big enough for Boo to pull out, though.

  2. Yum, I love the addition of onions, peppers and garlic to potatoes. It gives it that southwestern charm! I like having them as a breakfast side. I haven’t tried baking to get the extra crisp taste, just stir-frying them in a pan, but this might work just as well and it would require less time at the stove. A flip in between might just be enough to get them the preferable way. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I like mine crispy also. I hate cooking them on the stove because it takes so much oil. Then they just taste like oil. I will have to try your recipe. If I can make them a little healthier then we might have them more often. Thanks!
