Sheet Pan Eggs
There’s just something so incredible about easy meals that are basically foolproof, isn’t there?
That’s why I love recipes like this one.
There’s really no guesswork. No wondering if you fry pan is the right temperature and no technique required to flip the eggs.
It just works. Every time.
Sheet pan eggs are perfect for meal prep, amazing for frying eggs for a crowd, and they make the best eggs for breakfast sandwiches.
How to Cook Eggs in a Sheet Pan
The steps couldn’t be any simpler!
All you have to do is preheat your oven, lightly grease a baking sheet, crack the eggs into the sheet (doing your best to keep them relatively evenly spaced), and bake them.
It’s important to bake the eggs at 350 F and not at a higher temperature because it gives you so much more control over the doneness of your eggs.
Sure, you could bake these in as little as 6 minutes if you crank your oven up to 425 F, but your yolks would definitely be hard.
I’m partial to medium eggs (or sometimes dippy or over easy eggs). To cook the whites without completely cooking the yolks, you have to have a little patience and bake your eggs at 350 F.
For me, 12 minutes is the sweet spot. The yolks aren’t dippy, but they aren’t hard, and the whites are completely set.

What to Serve with Eggs Baked on a Baking Sheet
Trust me when I say that these are the perfect eggs for breakfast sandwiches! That is, by far, my favorite way to enjoy these eggs.
If you’re looking for different things to pair these eggs with, I also love having them with:
- Sautéed Spinach
- Potatoes (Especially Breakfast Potatoes)
- Hash Browns
- Sautéed Kale
- Roasted Veggies
- Smoked Salmon
Can You Freeze Baked Eggs
I wouldn’t recommend freezing these eggs.
Eggs freeze best when the whites and yolks are mixed together. That’s because yolks freeze exceptionally well, but the whites become tough and rubbery.
Since the whites and yolks remain separate in this recipe, I’d recommend refrigerating them in an airtight container for up to one week instead.
What You’ll Need
The only things you need for this recipe are spray oil and a baking sheet!
This is my favorite spray oil, but you could also pour your own oil into a pump oil sprayer.
When it comes to baking sheets, I prefer ones that perform well for all of my kitchen tasks. This is the baking sheet I recommend using because it’s an affordable and versatile one. It will work perfectly for everything from cookies to pizza.
You can also use small baking sheets if you only want to bake 6 eggs at a time.

- 12 large eggs
- Oil or butter (to grease the baking tray)
- Salt (to taste)
- Pepper (to taste)
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Grease the baking tray with oil, butter, or spray oil.
- Crack each egg onto a baking tray with raised edges, doing your best to distribute the yolks evenly across the tray.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the whites don’t jiggle and the yolks reach your desired level of doneness (the ones in the photo were baked for 12 minutes).
This recipe can be easily halved if you’re working with a smaller tray (like I did for the photos), or doubled if you’re working with a larger tray.

Can you reheat soft oven fried eggs how long what temperature and should the oven be preheated? Thank you very much!
Hi Elizabeth, I haven’t tried reheating these in the oven before, but this is what I think would work best. Preheat the oven to 300 F. Place the eggs on a baking sheet, wet your fingers, sprinkle the tray with a few drops of water, and cover the tray tightly with aluminum foil (the water and foil are to create some steam to stop the eggs from drying out and turning rubbery). Bake until warmed through (probably about 20 minutes, but I’d check it after 10). If you’re short on time, I’d try baking them at 350 F for 10 minutes (and check them after 5 minutes). For food safety, reheated eggs should have an internal temperature of 165 F. Hope that helps! -Alexa
How big is the sheet pan you use? I have a couple different sizes…
Hi Carolyn, For the pictures (making 6 eggs at a time), I used a toaster oven sheet pan which is roughly 9″ x 6″. For a dozen eggs I would use a half sheet pan, which is about 18″ x 13″. Hope that helps! -Alexa
This is so awesome! Thank you!
Thanks so much, Willow!
I actually prefer hard yolks. How long would that take? Would the whites get overdone?
Hi Janet, For hard yolks, I would bake these for 15 minutes. If you notice that the whites are more done than you’d like, you could always try popping the yolk and then lowering the cook time next time. That way the yolk and the white will have a more uniform thickness. Hope that helps! -Alexa
I like the idea of cooking eggs this way. I’m going to try cooking 6 eggs at a time using a small sheet pan. Only thing I can’t figure out is how do I re-heat left over eggs??
Hi Karen, You can reheat fried eggs in the microwave or in the oven. To reheat them in the microwave, place on a plate and cover it, then cook it in 15 second intervals (carefully flipping it before continuing to cook it) until it reaches your desired temperature (it needs a minimum internal temperature of 165 F, but they can quickly get much hotter than that in the microwave). To reheat it in the oven, grease a baking sheet, place the egg on it, and cover it with aluminum foil. Bake it at 300 F for about 20 minutes or at 350 F for about 10 minutes (be sure to check it halfway through the cooking time and cook it to an internal temperature of 165 F). Hope that helps! -Alexa
I want to t ry them in an air fryer oven on a sheet pan as well as a muffin pan.
how long ?
Hi Patricia, I’ve never tried this recipe in an air fryer, so I’m not sure which temperature and time would be the best. If you try it, please let me know what works for you! -Alexa
can you use a glass baking dish?
Hi Francis, I haven’t tried it, but I think it would work. If you try it, please let me know how it works for you! -Alexa
Can you bake eggs on a cookie sheet to chop up for potato salad? Or would this baking method not be good for eggs for potato salad.
Hi Kris, I’ve baked eggs for egg salad and that turned out well, so I imagine it would likely work for potato salad. Hope that helps! If you try it, please let me know how it goes. -Alexa
