Easy Brunch Recipes – Fried Potatoes with Peppers and Zucchini

Besides pancakes, I think potatoes must be the best breakfast food on the planet. During the summer months we like to jack them up with all sorts of fresh vegetables.  This morning we used zucchini and peppers.  Next week?  Maybe I’ll go British and add a few tomatoes to the pan.  We’ll see.

Here’s the recipe.


1 pound potatoes, chopped {unknown variety}
1 small zucchini, sliced
1 small green pepper, chopped
1 small marinated red pepper, chopped
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste


Preheat a heavy skillet over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.  Add chopped potatoes, stir and cover.  Cook potatoes until just about fork tender.  Move the potatoes to one the side of the pan, add 1 tablespoon olive oil to the opposite side and add zucchini and green peppers.  Cook peppers and zucchini about two minutes, toss in roasted red peppers, add salt and pepper and stir together.

Serve alone or with BACON.

    Dear Wonderful Mavis,
    Do you have a *search for your receipes that I’m missing? I love trying your receipes, and found the zuchhini-apple pie but can’t seem to find the zuchhini pickle relish.
    My monster zuchhinis are ready for harvesting. Thanks for being such an inspiration.

    Will try this. We like to marinate zucchini and onion slices in Italian dressing, then grill on the George Foreman. Makes a good summer side to lots of things.
