5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. This is a fun and easy brunch recipe. I have made it using various varieties of Simply Potatoes and they have all turned out excellent. When all our family can be together we especially enjoy sharing a brunch meal together. The combination of the oven roasted potatoes, the baked avocado and eggs with a sprinkling of pepper jack cheese adds a flavorful Mexican twist to this fun brunch meal. I always offer small bowls of salsa, sour cream and fresh cilantro as garnishes. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
