Substitutions and Variations

Different vegetables: One of the best things about this sheet pan omelet dish is you can vary the fillings and toppings, just like with many other egg recipes, so sub different veggies if you like.
Use another cheese: Sharp cheddar isn’t everyone’s favorite but you can use any kind of shredded cheese or even mix and match whatever you like such as half feta cheese and half colby jack.
Seasonings: Salt, pepper and nutmeg are good seasonings but you can use anything you like, such as onion and garlic powder, smoked paprika, dried oregano or fresh basil.
Make it meaty: Add some cooked bacon or ham in addition to the veggies if you like.

Top Tips

Don’t let it stick: When greasing a sheet pan for your baked scrambled eggs, it’s important to make sure you grease up the sides too. This prevents the sheet pan eggs from sticking.
Make two kinds: If you want to make one vegetable sheet pan egg dish and one with, say, cubed ham, bacon or chicken, you can either use two small baking sheets or use foil to separate a large baking sheet into two halves.
Check you’re using good eggs: When making sheet pan meals using eggs, it’s a good idea to crack each egg into a cup and then into the bowl. It’s easier to spot and pick out any stray bits of egg shell and it also means if you crack a bad egg, you aren’t breaking it into the bowl with all the others.

Yes, it’s greased served in a toasted bagel or between two slices of bread. You can even prepare it like this then wrap tightly in foil and take to work for lunch.

Is this recipe suitable for dinner?
