- Eggs – You’ll need 18 eggs for this recipe. You can also use a 32 ounce carton of liquid eggs instead.
- Heavy Cream – Heavy cream is great to get a rich flavor and fluffy texture in these eggs. Half and half will work, and so will regular milk. The only difference is that the texture and flavor will differ a bit.
- Cheddar Cheese – Highly recommend using freshly grated cheddar cheese, but the pre-packaged kind will work fine too. You don’t have to stick with cheddar you can also use white cheddar, Monterey jack, Colby jack, Pepper jack, gouda, or whatever cheese fits your preference.
- Olive Oil – This is strictly for greasing the baking sheet. Don’t be afraid to really lather this on, otherwise the eggs will stick to the pan.
- Toppings – Ham, bacon, and green onion is what this recipe calls for, but you can add in your favorite proteins and veggies instead. Some other great options are chopped spinach, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, cooked ground sausage, diced cooked chicken, and so much more! If you have picky eaters, feel free to leave the toppings out all together.
- Start by preheating the oven to 375°F. In a very large mixing bowl, add all of the eggs, heavy cream, salt and pepper.
- Whisk everything together until combined. You can use a hand mixer, just make sure to stop before the eggs become frothy.
- Once evenly combined, set aside.
- Generously grease a 12×18 rimmed sheet pan with olive oil. Get every corner and edge fully covered.
- Pour the entire egg mixture onto the 12×18 pan. Sprinkle the diced ham, bacon, and green onion and cheese on top of the eggs in the pan.
- Place the sheet pan eggs in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Open the oven to rotate the pan and cook for 5-10 more minutes, or until the eggs look fluffy and done. You’ll know they’re done when they aren’t “jiggly.” Slice into 12 even slices, or 16 if you want smaller portions. Serve and enjoy!
Tips And Advice
Storage – The great thing about this recipe is that you can keep these eggs in the fridge for the whole week and have breakfast meal prepped for you. You can store them in an airtight container, or tightly sealed baggie, in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months. If you go the freezing route, I recommend wrapping or bagging each serving individually.
To reheat, just stick the desired amount of servings in the microwave for a 30 seconds to 1 minute or until warm.
Make Egg Bites
Instead of using a sheet pan, you can use a muffin tin to make these eggs, and then you have egg bites ready for the week. Just grease each muffin tin generously with olive oil, or use an aluminum foil cupcake wrapper before pouring in the egg mixture. Decorate each well with your toppings and bake the same way you would in the sheet pan!
For this easy sheet pan eggs recipe you’ll need a few easy items to get you started!
Whole eggs give you more volume and more nutrients, but you can use just egg whites for this recipe. If you choose to use egg whites then you’ll need more eggs or add in some liquid egg whites.
Yes, it’s possible to burn the bottom and edges of these eggs if you leave them in the oven for too long. Make sure to rotate the pan when baking, and keep a close eye on them to check for doneness.
