The Easiest Way to Cook a Dozen Eggs at Once

Meet sheet pan eggs

Serving eggs to a crowd can be a daunting task. All those hungry, coffee-deprived mouths to feed--you don’t want to mess it up.

The solution? Sheet pan eggs--a genius hack from our friend Ali Slagle at Food52. It couldn’t be easier.

What do I need? You’ll need 12 eggs, a splash of milk or cream (as you would add to your typical scrambled eggs), and salt and pepper to taste. You can also use your favorite add-ins like vegetables, cooked bacon, cheese, etc.

Now what do I do first? Preheat the oven to 300°F; grease an 18-by-13-inch half-sheet pan. Crack the eggs into a large bowl and whisk together with milk, salt and pepper, then fold in the add-ins. Pour the mixture onto the baking sheet (if you’re using cheese, add it now). Pop the sheet pan into the oven, and let the eggs bake for about 15 minutes, until settled.

That’s it? You better believe it. Cut the eggs into squares and serve them open-faced like a frittata, in breakfast sandwiches or however you like. (A side of home fries is highly recommended.)
