HaBaNay Fried Potatoes


These are yummy tummy HaBaNay Potatoes.  I frequently go to breakfast with my favorite nephew/cousin named X.  Whenever and where ever we go he orders the same thing every time, fried potatoes and onions, with bell peppers, tomatoes, cheese, bacon, sausage, and ham topped with 2 over easy  eggs with crispy plantains on the side.

HaBaNay Fried Potatoes

Fry 3 pieces of bacon until crispy.  Remove from skillet set aside and save bacon drippings. Fry a 2-ounce piece of smoked ham. Remove from skillet dice and set aside.  Fry 2 breakfast sausages.  Remove from skillet set aside.  Wash skillet.  Scrub 3 medium sized red skinned potatoes put potatoes in the microwave cook until they are fork tender.  Slice the potatoes and dump them into the skillet with 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings and 1 tablespoon of butter.  Slightly brown the potatoes add  1/4 cup Vidalia onions, coarsely sliced, 1/3cup bell pepper thinly sliced.  Continue to fry until the potatoes are browned, crispy and the onions sweat.  Add 1 coarsely chopped Roma tomato, 1/4 cup grated mild cheddar cheese, all the meats except the bacon. Stir all together until the cheese melts. Add salt, pepper and granulated garlic to taste. Put the potatoes on the plate. Fry 2 large over easy eggs top the potatoes with the eggs.  Crumble the bacon on top the eggs. HaBaNay Fried Potatoes are served with a cup of coffee and crispy plantains and sour cream on the side.

Do you have a favorite breakfast?  Do you order the same thing?  Come on cousin, what’s your favorite?
