But a big delicious breakfast takes so long to prepare – there are lots of different elements, plus you're usually cooking before the coffee has kicked in. Instead of coordinating tons of different things for your meal, give these 3 sheet pan breakfast ideas a try! From traditional to Tex-Mex to sugary sweet, these 3 recipes for sheet pan breakfasts will up your breakfast game and save you time and energy.

1. Tex-Mex Breakfast Quesadillas

Yield: 8 servings
Prep Time: 25 Min
Cooking Time: 25 Min
Difficulty Level: Easy

You'll Need:

  • 7 tortillas
  • 1 potato, boiled & cubed
  • 14 oz ground beef, fried & seasoned
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 8 eggs
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 3 sprigs of cilantro, chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • sour cream + salsa for the garnish

Here's How:

1.1 Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease the sheet pan. Line the sheet pan with 6 tortillas so that they cover the entire surface of the pan and overlap one another slightly. Place the cubed potato, fried ground beef, and sliced red onion on top of the tortillas.

1.2 Whisk the eggs, milk, and cilantro together, and once combined, pour the egg mixture over the ingredients in the sheet pan.

1.3 Season the breakfast quesadilla with salt & pepper and sprinkle shredded mozzarella on top. Fold the sections of tortilla that fall outside of the sheet pan towards the center and place the final tortilla on top. For the best results, place some weight on top of the tortillas so that they don't bubble up in the oven. Transfer the sheet pan to the oven and bake at 350°F for 25 minutes. 

2. Ham, Egg & Hash Brown Breakfast

Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 50 minutes
Difficulty Level: Easy

You'll Need:

  • 1 lb potatoes, grated
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp chopped thyme
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 11 oz ham, cooked & cubed
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar
  • 6 eggs
  • chopped scallions for the garnish

Here's How:

2.1 Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease the sheet pan. Grate the potatoes directly onto the sheet pan, add in the sliced onions and minced garlic, and season with chopped thyme, salt & pepper. Pour the vegetable oil over the ingredients, mix everything together, and spread the potato mixture evenly over the sheet pan.

2.2 Transfer the sheet pan to the oven and bake at 350°F for 40 minutes. As the hash browns bake, take them out of the oven and stir them sporadically so that they cook evenly. Once the hash browns have baked, remove the sheet pan from the oven and sprinkle the cubed ham and shredded cheddar cheese on top. Press the bottom of a clean glass into the hash browns to make 6 evenly spaced wells and crack 1 egg into each well. Transfer the sheet pan back to the oven and bake for another 10 minutes. Remove the ham, egg & hash brown breakfast from the oven and garnish with chopped scallions.
