Expert Tips

O'Brien potatoes are diced potatoes, with chopped onions and pimientos or red or green bell peppers that are fried until they are golden and crispy. Frozen O'Brien potatoes have not been fried.

Cooked bacon is a great time-saver; look for it in the grocery store meat department.

With fresh fruit and sweet rolls or toast and jelly, this versatile, flavorful bake makes an easy brunch or weekend breakfast. For supper, serve this potato bake with a crisp green salad and French bread.
