Healthy Greek Potatoes
Making these healthy Greek potatoes takes no time at all. And, if you have any leftover, they’re perfect for your morning breakfast.
So, here’s what you do. Warm the potatoes over medium heat in a small skillet. Then crack an egg or two over them. Cover the pan with a lid and let that egg steam to your desired yolk finish (for me, it’s sunnyside!). Slide it out of the skillet on to your plate, and you have an immediate feast!

These potatoes are also great at room temperature or cold. And, with leftovers if you want to make a potato salad, you can sure do that.
Simply dice up those potatoes. Add some sliced celery, onions, diced red bell peppers and diced kosher dill pickles (yes, that’s right)! A little mayo and Greek plain yogurt, some fresh dill, and then chill it. You’re ready to chow down on some real fine Greek potato salad.
These Greek potatoes have endless possibilities. From adding some crumbled feta cheese or smothering with some cheddar cheese to tossing any leftover into your next homemade soup or stew. They keep for several days refrigerated. So if you have some fresh arugula or baby spinach leaves, make a salad.
Yes, slice up the potatoes. Add them to the greens. Drizzle on a simple olive oil and lemon juice vinaigrette or your favorite dressing.

Cover and cook in a preheated 375 oven for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
