There is something so great about breakfast time. Not only is it the most important meal of the day, but it’s also a great time to quickly interact with your family members before heading off in different directions.
But some mornings can become incredibly hectic and busy. With no time to eat a fully cooked hot meal or grab a cold bowl of cereal, you can start the day off bad and on an empty stomach. That is never fun!
What’s incredibly great about the time and age we live in, is all the different ways we have discovered to meal prep. Containers for meal prepping have been created, making the task that much easier.
Oodles and oodles of recipes for dinners and lunches that can be meal prepped days in advance and there are even a few recipes out there for overnight oats for an easy breakfast.
But what if you want to enjoy a delicious and hot cooked breakfast? How can you meal prep breakfast in a way that you can get a hot meal while on the go?
Traditionally, hot cooked breakfast includes eggs as a source of easy protein. That’s when sheet pan eggs can come in handy!
Sheet Pan Eggs
I bet you didn’t know that you could cook up an entire week of scrambled eggs on one cooking sheet, did you? Well, it’s true and the best part is that it is the easiest thing in the world to do. It takes practically no hands-on time at all.
How do you cook eggs for a week?
When you make sheet pan eggs using the recipe below, you end up with an entire cooking sheet full of fully-cooked scrambled egg. What you do next with it is up to you. But some friendly breakfast suggestions include:
- Cutting it into squares or rectangles and using as a filler ingredient for breakfast sandwiches. These can be made with pancake, biscuit or waffle as the bread and given the additions of bacon, cheese or ham for extra deliciousness.
- Dice it up small and enjoy it as scrambled eggs on any given morning.
- Chop it up into small squares and mix into a delicious egg fried rice recipe.
If you choose to make breakfast sandwiches, you can make layers using the same cooking sheet you cooked the eggs in. Pour a thin layer of pancake batter in the pan and cook until solid. Repeat for a second layer. Top with the egg, cheese, meats and anything else you wish to join in the breakfast sandwich. Place the last pancake layer on top and cut the giant sandwich into smaller pieces. Individually wrap and label them and you can easily have an entire weeks worth of breakfast sandwiches all cooked on your sheet pan.
Can you meal prep eggs?
This is a tricky question, but the simple answer is yes, you can! Why was the question tricky? Simply put, there are different answers to this question because there are so many different ways that you can cook and prepare eggs!
Hard-boiled eggs can be made and stored in their shells in a fridge for a few days prior to needing to be used. Eggs cooked fried, soft boiled or sunny side up may not do too well when reheated simply because the recooking process could either risk drying them out or overcooking them. But scrambled eggs like the ones we are making can survive being made in advance.
