These aren’t ordinary home fries. Oh no, these are Southern Crack Home Fries! These are special. The potatoes are tender on the inside and just so wonderfully golden-brown and crispy on the outside. Those potatoes are paired with bright bell peppers, savory onions, and fragrant garlic before being seasoned with Creole seasoning for fantastic zest! Southern Crack Home Fries is made for breakfast, but that won’t stop you from wanting them for lunch and dinner!
