Whip up a hearty breakfast this morning with a little help from everyone’s favorite root veggie. These recipes for breakfast potatoes, including potato pancakes, breakfast casseroles and more, will definitely keep you going all day long.

Southwestern Hash with Eggs

A bowl of food

Before I retired, this all-in-one skillet dish was constantly requested at office brunches. I’d leave out the eggs, double or triple the recipe and wrap servings of the zippy pork mixture in warm corn tortillas. 

Sweet Potato Pancakes with Cinnamon Cream

Food on a plate

Topped with a rich cinnamon cream, these pancakes are an ideal dish for celebrating the tastes and aromas of fall.

Loaded Tater Tot Bake

I keep frozen Tater Tots on hand for meals like this yummy Tater Tot casserole. It’s a super brunch, breakfast or side dish for kids of all ages.

Loaded Breakfast Potatoes

My kids love loaded potatoes in restaurants, so I modified them to make at home. Using the microwave for the potatoes will save you about 10 minutes. I also use thin-skinned red potatoes instead of russets to save on peeling time.

Favorite Loaded Breakfast Potatoes

My four young children are experts at eating with their hands. This breakfast potato recipe (or “brunchskins”) with veggies makes an easy finger food that they love.

Sunrise Sausage Enchiladas

These delicious enchiladas are equally good made with cubed ham. Prepare ahead, refrigerate and bake when ready for a convenient breakfast twist.

Sweet Potato & Andouille Hash

When my husband trained for the Senior Olympics, I looked for healthier recipes like these spicy sweet potatoes. Whip up some eggs and serve together.

Ham and Potato Frittata

Easy and delicious, this hearty dish’s been appreciated whenever I’ve served it…breakfast, lunch or dinner. Reheated or cold, the leftovers are also great! We—my husband, our 8-year-old daughter and I—live in a suburb. But our back windows look out at mountains, farms, horses and cows.

Amish Potato Pancakes

I have always been fascinated with Amish culture, especially the cooking! I came across this old recipe years ago, and it’s my husband’s very favorite side dish. 

Steak & Mushroom Breakfast Hash

Yes, we call this savory dish a “breakfast” hash, but with delectable ingredients like mushrooms, cheddar cheese, zucchini and taters, we’re betting your family will love this meal at any time of the day. 

Hash Brown & Apple Pancake

Wedges of crispy Hash Brown Apple Pancake make a fast and fabulous side dish the whole family will savor. Laced with onions, chives and Swiss cheese, they take only minutes and would go well with all kinds of entrees.

Diner Corned Beef Hash

I created my hash to taste like a dish from a northern Arizona restaurant we always loved. We round it out with eggs and toast made from homemade bread. 

Hash Brown Egg Brunch

Slow cookers aren’t just for making dinner. I make this often if we’re having company overnight. With just a little planning and not much work, I can prep it the night before and have a lovely breakfast waiting in the morning. 

Smoked Salmon-Potato Brunch Bake

The two different potatoes, fresh herbs and different textures make this savory brunch bake unique and special.

Delicious Potato Doughnuts

I first tried these tasty treats at my sister’s house and thought they were the best I’d ever had. They’re easy to make, and the fudge frosting tops them off well. When I make them for friends, the recipe is always requested. 

So cook any of these recipe and serve a power-packed breakfast to your family.
