Homemade Potatoes O'Brien Recipe

Cook Time: About 20 minutes  
Difficulty: Easy

Are you a leftover lover or hater? Personally, I love them; they are kind of my thing!  Leftovers are the perfect medium for recreating new culinary masterpieces (something I am well-known for in our household), and although it takes a bit of planning, the best part is you save money because you waste less. Who doesn't love saving money?

Potatoes O'Brien is a deliciously easy recipe to use extra peppers and our Cherchies Garlic Seasoning.  Traditionally this dish is made with potatoes, onions, and green and red peppers, but use what is available.  It's okay, I give you permission, cooking is about improvising, and since I had a plethora of green, yellow and orange peppers leftover from a neighborhood potluck, I used them instead.  

Make a large batch of these potatoes and divide them!  Use one part for dinner as a side dish, and freeze the rest to later add to eggs for a casserole or quick breakfast burritos.  Either way you "dice" it, you will have a quick and easy tasty side dish in under 30 minutes that your family or guests will devour!

Thank you for stopping by:)


  • 1 Tablespoon (Tbsp.) olive oil, divided
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 green pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 red pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 teaspoon (tsp) Cherchies Garlic Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon (tsp) ground pepper
  • 6 gold potatoes (or your favorite potatoes), chopped into 1 inch chuncka (feel free to leave the skins on)
  • 1 large clove of garlic, minced
  • Cherchies Pretty Hot Peppers (optional)

´╗┐Preparation  ´╗┐
Chop up onions, peppers, and set aside.  Wash and chop the potatoes (no need to remove the skins).  Add the potatoes to a medium bowl of cold water until ready to use, otherwise potatoes may turn grey, which may not go over well with semi-picky eaters;)  Trust me.

In a large skillet, cook the onions and peppers in 1 Tablespoon olive oil and Cherchies Garlic Seasoning until the onions are translucent.  Remove them from the skillet and set aside. 

In the same skillet, add remaining olive oil, potatoes, pepper and and garlic and cook on low until potatoes are soft, about 10 minutes.  Stir occasionally to prevent potatoes from sticking to the bottom of the pan.  After potatoes have cooked, add back in the pepper and onion mixture to the skillet.   (*Optional- for a twist to this dish, add the Cherchies Pretty Hot Peppers (spicier) or Pretty Peppers).  Cook for 5 minutes.  Serve this savory dish with our Savory Champagne Meatloaf Recipe and our Best Darn Garlic Bread Recipe for a complete meal. Enjoy!
