Home Fries with Fennel

home friesThese potatoes are phenomenal. Personally, I love love love fennel and I don’t think that people use it enough! It’s great with potatoes, and this recipe results in a savory, fabulously crispy breakfast side dish.

The recipe is fairly easy and quick to make, and it doesn’t require any kind of special kitchen gadgets. I am a lover of breakfast, brunch, and breakfast for dinner. I would eat breakfast all day everyday if I could! While I do not make this recipe for every brunch, it is a really nice edition to a plate that gives what otherwise would be a simple breakfast much more complexity in flavor.
