As you know, we just spent a wonderful weekend visiting friends in Paso Robles. Our friends are incredibly wonderful hosts! While we ate out most meals, Molly made us this beautiful and delicious Sunday brunch of scrambled eggs made with roasted potatoes and cheese, cinnamon french toast bake, and a fresh fruit salad. This served along with a cup of French Roast coffee sitting on their back patio overlooking the valley was divine!This pillsbury cinnamon french toast bake was new to me. I have never had this before, and it is yummy! I know my kids will love this!

Scrambled Eggs with Roasetd Potatoes
Molly also made these amazing scrambled eggs! What made them so good was that she had roasted potatoes the morning before and added the roasted potatoes along with cheese into the egg scramble. Roasting the potatoes ahead of time made putting the scramble together a much quicker process on Sunday morning. When Molly roasted the potatoes she used garlic olive oil. All the wonderful flavors made these eggs out of this world!
Metal cookie sheet with small rim around it
3 lbs. small fingerling potatoes or small gold potatoes or tri-colored potatoes
¼ cup olive oil (garlic olive oil if you have it!)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Optional – add parsley flakes, rosemary.
Preheat oven to 400*
Wash, dry, and cut potatoes into bite-sized pieces, set aside in a large bowl.
Mix together well in a smaller bowl: olive oil, salt, pepper, any optional items.
Pour oil mixture over potatoes and toss until all potatoes are well coated.
Now pour all potatoes onto baking sheet in an even layer, and place in oven. After 20 minutes, stir potatoes with spatula to keep from sticking. Return to the oven for another 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve. Enjoy!
A delicious brunch! Our Sunday morning brunch with friends was absolutely delightful! We all enjoyed Molly’s very tasty menu, plus this weekend gave us more time to enjoy and nourish our friendships – Life does not get much better than this!Thank you so much to our dear friends!
