Potato Basil Scramble Recipe

Publisher Photo
This potato dish is so popular at our house, we argue over who gets the leftovers. I grow my own herbs, so I usually use fresh basil in this recipe, but dried works just as well. We love this for dinner with fruit salad and English muffins. It also makes a hearty breakfast for the weekend. —Terri Zobel, Raleigh, North Carolina
