  • Precook the Potatoes:
    • To speed up the cooking process, you can partially cook the diced potatoes before finishing them in the duck fat. To do this, place the diced potatoes in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave them for about 4-5 minutes until they are just starting to become tender. This step is optional but can reduce the cooking time in the duck fat.
  • Sauté the Onions and Garlic:
    • In a large skillet or frying pan, heat the duck fat over medium heat.
    • Add the finely chopped onion and sauté until it becomes translucent and slightly caramelized.
    • Add the minced garlic and continue sautéing for another 1-2 minutes until the garlic becomes fragrant.
  • Add the Potatoes and Herbs:
    • If you pre-cooked the potatoes in the microwave, add them to the skillet with the onions and garlic. If not, you can add the raw diced potatoes directly to the skillet.
    • Stir the potatoes to coat them with the duck fat and distribute the onions and garlic evenly.
    • Sprinkle the chopped fresh thyme and rosemary over the potatoes.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook the Breakfast Potatoes:
    • Increase the heat to medium-high and cook the potatoes, stirring occasionally, until they become crispy and golden brown on the outside. This will take about 10-15 minutes.
    • Adjust the heat as needed to prevent burning, and make sure the potatoes cook evenly on all sides.
  • Garnish and Serve:
    • Once the breakfast potatoes are nicely browned and crispy, remove the skillet from the heat.
    • Optionally, garnish the potatoes with chopped fresh parsley for an extra burst of freshness.
