This egg-ceptional recipe for Sheet Pan Eggs is a healthy, protein packed way to start your day, feed a crowd or meal prep for the week.
I’ve added in cottage cheese to up the protein, and with the fresh red bell peppers and spinach mixed in you couldn’t ask for a better breakfast, brunch or light lunch.
Not only is this super easy to make but eggs are such a versatile, nutrient dense food. They are a staple in our fridge and always on our grocery list for the next haul.

Reasons You Will Love My Sheet Pan Eggs
- My Sheet Pan Eggs are a healthy way to start the day.
- The perfect quick breakfast for the “on-the-go” family.
- Serve them as is, on toast, or meal prep breakfast sandwiches!
- Super easy to make for your family or to feed a crowd.
- This is a great make-ahead meal, so you can save time in the morning.
- Mix, bake and serve all in under 30 minutes! No fuss and easy clean up!
- Eggs: I like using the freshest large eggs that I can find.
- Heavy cream: For the richest, creamiest eggs make sure you use heavy cream.
- Cottage cheese: When you blend the eggs with the cottage cheese they become extra airy, and they bake up fluffy. Plus, it adds even more protein to this already protein packed breakfast.
- Onion powder: Use onion powder for an evenly dispersed oniony flavor.
- Garlic powder: Just the right amount of garlic flavor mixed evenly throughout the sheet pan eggs.
- Salt: a must in every recipe to highlight all flavors
- Spinach: I like to use fresh baby spinach. I haven’t tested this recipe out yet with frozen spinach.
- Red bell pepper: I love the slight sweetness it adds to the eggs. You can use your favorite color bell pepper.
- Cheese: I’m using a combination Monterey jack and gruyere shredded but feel free to use your favorite cheese or cheese combinations.
- Serving ideas: avocado, green onions, chives, bread or english muffins, hot sauce, parsley, etc.
Step by Step Directions
- Prepare the baking sheet.
- Blend the eggs, cream, cottage cheese and seasonings together until fully combined.
- Pour eggs onto the sheet pan.
- Top with chopped bell pepper, spinach and cheese.
- Bake, cool, then slice and serve!
Tips and Variations
- Make a breakfast sandwich! Add a portion of the Sheet Pan Eggs on top of a breakfast sausage patty or bacon, slice of your favorite cheese and a toasted English muffin for a satisfying breakfast on the go.
- Serve on top of avocado toast and garnish with fresh sprouts or arugula.
- As a no-spill option, place the parchment lined sheet pan on the oven rack, and then pour in the egg mixture. This way, you won’t have to carry the sheet pan from your counter into the oven and risk spilling the eggs.
- Mix things up with your favorite veggies. Use mushrooms, onions, fresh herbs, baby kale or broccoli. Just remember that too many veggies will add more liquid to your eggs causing them to be watery.
- I used a high powered blender to mix up the eggs, but you can use a whisk too. I find the blender method is easy since you can pour directly from the blender onto the sheet pan.
- Reheat leftover eggs in a toaster oven or a quick pop in the microwave.
If you want to maintain the same texture, then I would suggest ricotta cheese is your best substitution, although I haven’t tested this version. If you do try out another substitute, please let me know in the comments below!
Yes you can. Just remember that you will need 2 egg whites for each whole egg you replace, or ¼ cup of egg whites for each whole egg. I also have not tested this recipe with liquid egg so I cannot advise on how much to use.
Store left over sheet pan egg squares in a glass container with a tight fitting lid for up to 5 days. You can also wrap the completely cooled eggs in plastic wrap, and then freeze in an air tight container for up to 4 months.
Yes! 18 eggs is a lot, so this makes for a great meal prep. But if you’re wanting to make a smaller portion, easily cut the recipe in half and use a smaller sheet pan, such as a quarter sheet.
