Breakfast potatoes

These potatoes are what we serve whenever anyone comes over for breakfast. They are perfect for a brunch with friends, or for just the two of us. I often serve them with tofu scramble and waffles or pancakes. When it is just my husband and I we eat the whole pan of potatoes and call it good.
