Sheet Pan Eggs Recipe

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our read the Privacy Policy

Sheet Pan eggs are the easiest way to cook a dozen eggs or more – perfect eggs for a large crowd or just a family of 4, your eggs can be done in no time.

Once you skip the oil and butter splatter, you will never go back to the skillet again. Plus sheet pan eggs are perfect for breakfast sandwiches and morning meal prep. Serve eggs with bacon and pancakes for a full morning meal!

Styles of Egg Yolk

There is no doubt that egg yolk is a personal preference. I love eggs with a runny yellow that I can dip toast into, but my husband likes them mostly soft in the center with a tiny run. He called these eggs “perfect”, but perfect is really up to you!

  • Over Easy are eggs that are cooked on both sides – as these eggs are oven baked, they are only cooked, but not flipped
  • Sunny Side up means a runny yolk and a little bit of runny white..it’s BARELY white.
  • Hard Fried is when you cook the egg, puncture the yolk and flip it and cook it again

The eggs in my sheet pan have no official style as they are not fried eggs, but are a cross between “over easy” and “soft boiled” – the white is done and the yellow yolk is soft and just slightly runny. If you want a more runny yolk, you will have to pull them out of the oven sooner.

Sheet Pans Matter

Sheet pans matter! As I have learned from trial and error, the larger the sheet pan, the more opportunity the eggs have to slide when transferring. If you are serving your eggs between a crowd of people, you want a more defining edge to cut each egg, which means you want the yolks not to all congregate to one side of the sheet pan. Only use a pan as large as you need.

Additionally, if your pan is off kilter (like some of my sheet pans are), your eggs and yolks all may go to one side of the pan.

The best way to serve is to try to keep them all separated in their own little quadrant. If you do not feel confident that you can manage that on your own, you may be able to create a little foil grid, crunching up foil the way I did for my crispy oven baked bacon.

OVEN TIMES

The oven I work with often runs hot, and not all ovens are predictable to what temperature they say. The first time you make eggs on a sheet pan, you will want to monitor them closely until you know the timing. Here is how my oven worked out

  • 8 minutes for a runny yolk
  • 10 minutes for a soft boil (as shown)
  • 12 minutes for a hard boil

I love, love breakfast (even for dinner!)

    You say you will never go back to the oven again. I thought the purpose was to use your oven. You need to review your content before posting as attention to details is important

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      You’re right. I made a mistake and said oven over the skillet.

      But I am a person, not a company and I write these recipes with 2 kids in the background, a cat on my lap and this year, balancing the death of my father from Covid so sometimes my brain doesn’t match my fingers. You could be a little kinder considering you forget to add a period at the end of your own sentence after criticizing my details.

    2. Dear JG,
      If you have children, I hope they get the help that they shurly need for all the damage you have done.

      ..and I totally believe that you didn’t apply the period! My God woman, I suggest that you start checking, then double checking your pissy usless nasty little comments before firing them off!

  2. Loved this!

    I think you were very kind in your reply to JG. I learned from you, as I no doubt would have fired off something a bit more aggressive in the same situation. That would have accomplished nothing other than a little satisfaction I would gain from publicly slapping down a person who would actually take up time to correct you and tell you how to run your business over an obvious word mixup.
    Can you imagine what her children go through when they screw up and use a wire hanger?
    Anyway, I loved the hash browns! Thank you!

  3. I absolutely LOVE this way of cooking a large amount of eggs. It’s very helpful in making Eggs Benedict.
    Thank you for taking the time in sharing this.

      Wonderful! Glad it was a good egg recipe for your family. I find when cooking for a lot of people, this works way better than doing a few at a time in a skillet. Thank YOU for taking the time to visit!
