Southern Style Breakfast Potatoes

Southern Style Breakfast Potatoes from

My husband and I LOVE breakfast! We recently had the chance to eat at the White Wolf Cafe here in Orlando, Florida. We both fell in love with their home fries and I immediately knew that I had to try to emulate them to make my own version! Their Southern Style Breakfast Potatoes are a perfect mix of white potato and sweet potato. 

Growing up I never ate sweet potatoes, but now that I’m older I love sweet potatoes. I also love mixing in sweet potatoes to the traditional breakfast potato side dish! Give this recipe for Southern Style Breakfast Potatoes a try the next time your making a big Sunday breakfast.
