How to Make Eggs in a Sheet Pan (AKA A Sheet Pan Omelet)
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Step 2: Crack all 18 eggs into a large mixing bowl, pour in heavy cream and salt and pepper to taste. Whisk together until combined (using a mixer is faster and requires less elbow grease) but before the eggs become frothy. Set aside.
Step 3: Next, grease a 12X18 rimmed sheet pan with olive oil. Make sure to cover the entire surface and the inside edges.
Step 4: Pour the egg mixture into the greased baking sheet.
Step 5: Next, evenly sprinkle on your cubed ham, bacon, green onions and cheese.
Step 6: Carefully move the filled baking sheet to your oven and bake for 10 minutes. Open the oven door and rotate the baking sheet and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes more, until the eggs are set and no longer jiggly.
Step 7: Cut into 12 pieces for large portions or 16 pieces for smaller pieces.
Step 8: Serve Warm!

Helpful Tips & Substitutions
There are many ingredients that you can add to sheet pan eggs to give them more flavor and nutrition. Some good options include:
- Vegetables: Chopped bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, spinach, and tomatoes all work well in sheet pan eggs. You can sauté these ingredients in a pan before adding them to the sheet pan, or you can add them directly to the pan and let them cook alongside the eggs.
- Meat: Crumbled sausage, bacon, or ham can add protein and flavor to your sheet pan eggs. You can cook these ingredients in a separate pan or on the sheet pan alongside the eggs.
- Cheese: Grated cheddar, feta, or goat cheese can add a creamy, salty flavor to sheet pan eggs. You can sprinkle the cheese over the top of the eggs or mix it into the eggs before baking.
- Herbs and spices: Fresh herbs like basil, parsley, and chives can add a burst of flavor to sheet pan eggs. You can also add dried herbs like oregano, thyme, and paprika for a more intense flavor.
Remember to cut any add-ins into small pieces so that they cook evenly with the eggs. Enjoy experimenting with different combinations to find your favorite!
Yes, absolutely! This recipe is to feed a crowd or help you meal prep throughout the week but if you just want to make these eggs for a smaller family just cut the ingredients in half and use a smaller sheet pan.
Yes, using only egg whites instead of whole eggs can make your sheet pan eggs a bit healthier because egg whites are lower in calories and fat than whole eggs. They are also a good source of protein. If you do choose to use only egg whites, you may want to consider adding other nutrient-rich ingredients to your sheet pan eggs to make up for the nutrients that are missing from the egg whites.
