Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients
Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut off and discard the stem of the bell pepper. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then medium dice. Place in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Grate the fontina on the large side of a box grater. Roughly chop the roasted peppers. Halve and pit the avocado. Using a spoon, remove the avocado from the skin, then thinly slice. Season with salt and pepper.
Roast & finish the vegetables
2 Roast & finish the vegetables
Line a sheet pan with foil. Place the diced potatoes on the foil. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and the Italian seasoning. Toss to coat. Arrange in an even layer. Roast 10 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven. Carefully add the seasoned bell pepper to the sheet pan. Return to the oven and roast 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Immediately top with the grated fontina and chopped roasted peppers; carefully stir until combined and the cheese is melted.
Fry the eggs & serve your dish
3 Fry the eggs & serve your dish

Once the pepper starts roasting, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Crack the eggs into the pan, keeping them separate; season with salt and pepper. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolks are cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Turn off the heat. Serve the finished vegetables topped with the seasoned avocado and fried eggs. Drizzle with the pesto. Enjoy!
