Reasons to ♡ this recipe
- they make a big batch
- they make a great meal prep breakfast, and you can even freeze any leftovers you have
- you can customize your toppings
- they are really simple to prep and very hands off!
- eggs- this recipe was tested with large eggs.
- milk- helps mobilize the eggs so they spread across the pan, and also prevents the eggs from drying out while cooking; some experts recommend half and half for a richer result, and eggs that don't weep (1, 2).
- cheese- use mozzarella or cheddar, or get creative, adding something like crumbled feta, jalapeño cheddar, or aged cheddar.
- add ins- for this recipe, I've used finely chopped bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, and cooked, cooled & chopped bacon. See below for more suggestions!
Step by step directions
1. Mix ingredients- Beat together eggs, then add in milk, salt & pepper.
2. Prepare pan- Grease a good quality rimmed sheet pan (these are the ones I own!) generously with oil. Make sure to use a 12 X 17 inch pan (and at least 1 inch deep)
3. Add eggs- Pour the eggs into the sheet pan, then sprinkle with any veggies, bacon, or cheese you'd like to add.
4. Bake- Place in a 375°F oven and bake for 20 minutes. Eggs should be set and not jiggly in the middle.
5. Cool + portion- Cool for 5 minutes, then serve them up!
These eggs come out of the pan easily, with minimal cleanup involved. With that being said, if you wanted to, you could try parchment or foil.
Yes! Wrap in plastic wrap and place in a larger storage container, and you can freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw completely, then heat in the microwave before enjoying.
Sure, but you're going to need to cut the recipe in half. Grease the pan well, and bake at 375°F for 20-25 min, or until the eggs no longer jiggle.
If you finely chop your vegetables, they can be added without cooking first.
Add in ideas
I caution you not to go too crazy with the veggies as they do release liquid and you don't want your eggs to get too liquidy.
- bacon (cooked & cooled first)
- crumbled sausage (cooked & cooled first)
- chopped ham
- cauliflower rice
- spinach or kale
- finely chopped broccoli
- finely chopped onion
- sun dried tomatoes (drained well and finely chopped)
- shredded zucchini (liquid squeezed out)
Storage + meal prep
- fridge- store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
- freezer- cool completely, then carefully wrap in plastic or parchment paper. Place in a larger meal prep container or freezer bag, squeezing out as much air as you can from the bag. Freeze for up to 3 months.
- thaw- in the fridge overnight
- reheat- in the microwave until steaming hot.
