Sheet Pan Eggs with bacon, spinach, and tomato is an incredibly easy healthy meal that is low carb!
Do you love the idea of eggs and bacon in the morning but hate standing over the stove? Well, now you don’t have to! You can go ahead and catch up on your email or watch the morning show while the oven does the work.
Sheet Pan Eggs
You’ll be free to do other things in the morning while breakfast is cooking with this easy sheet pan baked eggs.
Table of contents
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day but most people end up eating it on the go. But while you are getting yourself ready in the morning, you can easily bake yourself a simple meal. That’s the beauty of using the oven for cooking!
Cleanup is a breeze as well, especially when you line the pan with aluminum foil or a silicone baking mat. My preference is to use a reusable non-stick baking mat (add your aff link) because it’s more eco-friendly.
How to bake sheet pan eggs into a breakfast meal
If you just want to bake eggs on a sheet pan, all you have to do is crack the eggs onto a lined pan and bake at 400°F until they are cooked. For soft set eggs, that takes about ten minutes.
However, it’s much better to turn sheet pan-fried eggs into a complete meal. That’s why this recipe adds in bacon and vegetables. It’s a great way to get your breakfast cooked in 30 minutes without standing at the stove.
For a list of some of my favorite items to use when cooking, and why I chose them, please visit my Kitchen Resource page.
Baking the bacon
The bacon takes longer to cook than the eggs and vegetables so it’s cooked by itself first. A standard rimmed baking sheet should be able to fit eight slices of bacon across it.
In a preheated 400°F oven, it should take about 20 minutes to fully cook bacon. But since you’ll want it nice and crisp, it’s going to be cooked a little longer after adding the eggs and vegetables.
After baking, the bacon will shrink in size. Using tongs, you’ll want to arrange the slices into two squares with a slice of bacon for each of the sides. It should look like the following image.
Adding the eggs and vegetables
Once you have your two squares made with the bacon slices, it’s time to add the spinach. Simply divide four ounces of baby spinach leaves between the two squares. There should be a pile of spinach filling the inside of each square.
The eggs are added next. You can make little spaces within the spinach leaves for where you want to drop them. But just crack four eggs into each square being careful not to place them too close to each other.
To complete the dish, the tomato halves are sprinkled evenly on top. But you’ll want to make sure you drop them away from the eggs so the yolks don’t break.
Then just return the pan to the oven and bake for another ten minutes or until the eggs are set. If you like runny yolks, you’ll want to check them after about five minutes. For harder set eggs, you can bake them for as long as 12 minutes.
Can the dish be made ahead?
If you don’t have time to make the sheet pan eggs on busy mornings, you can make them in advance. Simply make the recipe and then store it in the refrigerator for up to a week until ready to serve. Each serving can be reheated on a plate in the microwave for about one minute on high.
Using other vegetables
For those who don’t like spinach, other vegetables can be used instead. Asparagus, eggplant, and broccoli are great choices, but they will take longer to roast. You can roast them on a separate sheet pan drizzled with olive oil. Or you can add in leftover vegetables from dinner.
