Potato and Pepper Breakfast Saute

My Papa like s having a full meal for breakfast. It not only keeps him fuller for longer but is also healthier. On certain specific weekdays my mum usually makes for him unskinned potatoes and coleslaw with pineapple or raisin, and maybe a cup of tea afterwards. #LuhyasWillBeLuhyas LOL

I also tend to get very hungry soon after having my breakfast. And the more of a full meal I eat in the morning, the more energy I will have to power me through the first hours of the day. I decided to make  what mum makes for daddy in the morning abit more exciting with flavors I know go very well with potatoes. If you are looking for a hearty filling breakfast, you are in the right place :))

    Hey Kaluhi,what is the essence of not peeling the potato skin?I have always been so skeptical about it

    • Kaluhi's_Kitchen

      Hey Yvonne,
      Not peeling the potato not only saves time, but adds an earthy flavor to the dish and presents a difference in texture which is otherwise absent in peeled potatoes. Just as some people peel their tomatoes while others do not find any difference whether the sking is there or not.
      It is not a must for you to unskin your potatoes. If you prefer not to have your skins, you are totally free to follow your preference.
