The restaurant serves this Potato Scramble Recipe with cooked sausage patties and buttermilk biscuits.

Favorite Restaurant Breakfast Recipe

Preparation time: 15 minutes. Servings: 2.



  • 1 1/2 teaspoons each of butter and peanut oil or vegetable oil
  • 6-8 ounces cooked, diced potatoes ('reds' are fine or other potatoes)
  • 1-2 ounces sliced red onions (or green onions or none - your choice)
  • Dash of garlic powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-2 ounces diced fresh tomato (again, optional)
  • Freshly ground black pepper (it does make a difference)
  • 1-2 ounces Cheddar cheese, grated



  • Heat butter and oil over low heat in a 7-8 inch egg pan 
  • While the pan is heating, beat the eggs in a small mixing bowl with a wire whip until blended but not frothy
  • When the fat is hot enough to sizzle a drop of water, add the potatoes, red onions and a dash of garlic powder
  • Saute’ briefly, stirring or shaking the pan often
  • Pour in the eggs and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula but do not over stir or allow the eggs to brown
  • Add the tomatoes and stir
  • Remove the eggs from the heat when they are “set” but still soft and moist
  • Immediately top with cheese and cover until cheese is melted
  • Divide in the pan and slide onto plates for two servings or plate whole for one serving

Enjoy your potato scramble and the company of those you share it with! This restaurant recipe is easy but delicious. It is a favorite restaurant recipe for breakfast.
