Need to make eggs for a crowd? Want to prepare a big batch of make ahead breakfast sandwiches? I’ll show you how to cook 12 eggs quick … make Sheet Pan Eggs!
If you’re like me, you have seen the recipes for big batches of make ahead breakfast sandwiches. I figured they would be a healthy way to start the day for my two teenage
garbage disposals boys and way cheaper than the pre-made frozen breakfast sandwiches. But I have zero patience for cooking eggs – I just scramble them every time – and I really didn’t want to use my itty bitty non stick skillet to cook 12 individual eggs. So, I thought maybe, just maybe, I could bake eggs in the oven. And it was a glorious, egg-y success!! I present to you …
Sheet Pan Eggs
Guys, they might not be pretty, but those baked eggs slice up perfectly and are thin enough to layer in breakfast sandwiches, make quick microwave omelets or just to feed a crowd quick for breakfast!
Start with 12 large eggs and a 12 x 17 inch sheet pan sprayed generously with non-stick cooking spray.
In a bowl, whisk the eggs together with about 2-3 tablespoons of water. I’ve heard that scrambling eggs with water makes them fluffier, but use milk if it makes you happy 🙂 Pour the eggs on the prepared sheet pan and carefully transfer the pan to your oven.
Once they are baked, you will have this large, bright yellow sheet of perfectly cooked eggs. The sheet pan eggs will shrink in a little from the edge of the pan as they cool.
Then, just slice the sheet of baked eggs into 12 squares. 1 square = 1 egg. It fits perfectly on standard sandwich bread for quick and easy breakfast sandwiches.
You made Sheet Pan Eggs … now what?
Make Egg Rounds
Use a biscuit butter or circle cookie cutter to make egg rounds for English muffin or bagel sandwiches. The leftover egg bits can be added to a breakfast bowl or stirred into fried rice for dinner.
If you want to make quick 2 egg omelets, slice the sheet lengthwise into 6 equal slices. Fill one half with meat, veggies and cheese, fold the egg slice over and pop it in the microwave until the cheese is melted. Easy breezy breakfast!
Low Carb Breakfast Roll Ups
Layer ham and cheese (or thinly sliced avocado and tomato) on a slice of sheet pan eggs. Roll up and secure with a toothpick for perfectly portable low carb breakfast roll ups.
