Food Factor: Simple Sheet Pan Eggs
by Ms. Natasha Haynes, MSU Extension Service
If you have a large family and need new breakfast ideas, this sheet pan omelet will please a crowd and keep you from spending hours in the kitchen. Best of all, you can customize it for your family's taste preferences.
You don’t have to precook any of the toppings, but they may be a little crunchy. I prefer to sauté the mushrooms, onions and peppers first to cook out some of the water and get the flavors to blend together a little before adding to the egg mixture. You know I love spicy foods, so I’d even add a little salsa to this for some more kick!
When we made this recipe, the crew loved it! We talked about doubling the recipe for a thicker layer of eggs – the mixture didn’t cover the entire pan. We also covered our sheet pan with foil to make clean-up a snap!
