EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - Dana Rady, with the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association, shares a recipe to include potatoes for breakfast.

Potatoes are considered a true superfood because they are a complex carb meaning your body digests them slower than simple carbs.


Potato Breakfast Tacos

1 lb. petite potatoes

salt & pepper to taste

4 large eggs

8 corn tortillas 6″ size

1 1/2 cup fresh spinach

1 ounce cojita or goat cheese crumbles

Basic Chimichurri Sauce

1/3 cup olive oil

2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

1/2 cup Fresh parsley packed

3 Tbsp. fresh oregano

4 cloves garlic

2 Tbsp. red onion finely minced

1 tsp. red chili flakes

1/4 tsp. coarse sea salt


Preheat the oven to 400°F.

While oven is heating, wash and dry potatoes, then chop into 1/4″ cubes. Spread in a single layer on a nonstick or prepared baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Roast 10-12 minutes, then flip. Allow to roast another 10-12 minutes until the potatoes are browned and crispy. If desired, switch oven settings to broil for the last 3-4 minutes of roasting.

Meanwhile, gently whisk together the eggs and scramble in a non-stick or cast iron skillet until cooked to your preference. If desired, heat tortillas in the warm skillet before building the tacos.

To build the tacos: add the fresh spinach, then layer the scrambled eggs and roasted potatoes on top. Drizzle 1/2 tablespoon of chimichurri sauce over the top of each taco, then sprinkle with cheese. One serving equals two tacos and one tablespoon of chimichurri sauce.

Serve immediately.
