These Cheesy Bacon Oven Potatoes with jalapeno are an easy and flavorful recipe that is perfect for breakfast or brunch!
I think the best thing about the weekend is having the time to make a bona fide breakfast meal. During the week I am guilty of starting my days with breakfast bars, yogurt or sometimes just a cup of coffee. So weekend breakfast (or better yet, brunch) is a down right luxury.
Pancakes, waffles and pastries are great. But I always gravitate more to the savory breakfast meals. I like meaty, potato-ey, cheesy, super filling meals. These Cheesy Bacon Oven Potatoes with Jalapeno is all of those things with a touch of spiciness.
This recipe isn’t just for breakfast and brunch though. It also works as a breakfast for dinner option!
