12 Sheet Pan Breakfast Meals That Make The Most Important Meal Of The Day Easier To Cook
Mornings can be such a struggle. Between toddlers whining for milk, older kids needing last minute homework help before school, and trying to start a life-saving pot of coffee, the amount of time left over for making a nutritious breakfast is miniscule. Luckily, making a sheet pan breakfast meal can save you precious time in the mornings when life is throwing absolutely everything at you and you couldn't find a matching pair of shoes for the baby if your life depended on it.
If you're not familiar with this time-saving breakfast hack, allow me to introduce you to your new morning meal go-to. Sheet pan breakfasts can help reduce the time it takes to make a well-rounded meal that everyone can appreciate on a rushed morning. Basically, you pile breakfast staples ranging from bacon and eggs to sausage and veggies on a sheet pan, and bake an entire breakfast all at once right in your oven. You can also get a little fancy with it by introducing a pastry element to your sheet pan breakfast meal.
Not only is cooking your whole breakfast on one sheet pan time-saving, but having only one pan to clean means that whoever is on dish duty (probably you, right?) will have less mess to deal with than a traditional stove-top cooked breakfast that usually requires a separate pan for each component. Sheet pan breakfast meals are a delicious win-win for the whole family on busy mornings.
