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.

How to cook Sheet Pan Eggs
- Sheet Pan
- Cooking Spray
- Salt and Pepper
- Dozen eggs
Pre-heat your oven to 425 Degrees.
Cover your sheet pain in full foil and spray down with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
Crack your 12 eggs carefully, making sure not to get any shells in the sheet pan. Try to crack your yolks in ways that keep your eggs in their own section to make for an easy spatula cut.
Season top of eggs with salt and pepper to taste
Once oven has reached 425, put the sheet pan in the oven until desired yolk center.
The oven I work with often runs hot and not all ovens are predicable 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!)
