Since having my baby in March, I’ve had a steady stream of adoring grandparents, aunts, and uncles staying at my house. So, in addition to feeding my immediate family, I’ve been cooking for crowds on the regular. It was a little stressful at first, but my new favorite kitchen hack — sheep pan breakfast recipes — has made things easy. Because the last thing I want to do is spend my precious someone-else-is-holding-the-baby time scrubbing pots and pans.

Here in the south, biscuits dominate breakfast. And while I can’t deny myself a flaky carb-filled treat all of the time, I’ve taken to eating eggs on a bed of kale on occasion too. I know, sacrilege! But I feel so much better starting my day this way, which is why I was instantly drawn to this 15-Minute Kale and Egg Bake at Healthy Nibbles and Bits. If you’re imagining dry, rough kale, think again. After massaging it in olive oil, baking it, and adding goat cheese (mmm), the kale is tender and delicious. Maybe even something the kids will like.
Oh, man. This Sheet Pan Full Breakfast with Garlic Butter Mushrooms at Cafe Delites looks crazy delicious. Plus, it takes a mere 5 minutes to prep and is on the table in 20. I’m hanging on to this one for the big holiday breakfasts coming up.
This recipe for Sheet Pan Pancakes at Kirbie Cravings delivers all the goodness of pancakes without the time standing at the stove and flipping. Another bonus? Everyone can eat at the same time, rather than fighting over each batch. Add blueberries like Kirbie or cinnamon and pecans for a fall-flavored treat.
Honestly, I would eat these Sheet Pan Breakfast Fajitas any time of the day. Chungah at Damn Delicious has been a recent favorite around my house because her recipes are so simple and the flavor never disappoints. I can’t wait to try these fajitas for a hearty breakfast or brinner.
The sweet potato in this Sweet Potato Bacon Sheet Pan Breakfast at Applegate make this recipe a fun twist on the traditional potato hash, plus a slight nutritional edge over the original. No fancy ingredients here, just six items that I pretty much always keep in my kitchen, making it the perfect breakfast for chilly weekdays when cereal won’t cut it.
