The perfect addition to your Sunday morning breakfast that is paleo and Whole30 compliant!



  • 3 russet potatoes, washed and cubed
  • 1 sweet yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons ghee
  • 2 Teaspoons salt, more to taste
  • 23 Teaspoons ground black pepper
  • compliant ketchup


  1. Heat large skillet to medium heat and add 1 Tablespoon of ghee and let it melt, swirling to coat the pan.
  2. Add 1/2 the onions and let reduce for 2 minutes, stirring fairly constantly.
  3. Add potatoes and stir to coat them in ghee. (I use a small spatula)
  4. Cover.
  5. Cook potatoes, stirring often, on medium for approximately 10 minutes, adding additional ghee as needed to ensure the potatoes don’t dry out or stick to the pan.
  6. Add remaining onion and 1 Teaspoon salt and 1 Teaspoon pepper.
  7. Mix to combine.
  8. Cook another 5 minutes and then start testing the potatoes for taste and firmness.
  9. Continue adding any additional ghee, as needed, to ensure the potatoes don’t dry out.
  10. Add additional salt and pepper as needed (I make mine very peppery, so I added 3 Teaspoons).
  11. Once the potatoes have reached your desired firmness, serve immediately with compliant ketchup.
