Sheet Pan Ham and Eggs

I have to say this one is a a HUGE game changer for the breakfast time struggle; you can thank me later.  Sheet Pan Ham and Eggs are an easy way to have a delicious healthy breakfast on a busy weekday without any actual cooking!  True story, I promise.

A few simple steps and some basic breakfast ingredients  is all it takes to get 12 easy healthy breakfasts made; all while you work on your weekly Meal Prep.

  • Eggs
  • Ham
  • Shredded cheese
  • cream
  • herb of choice

Five ingredients, 5 minutes of prep and 10 minutes of cook time and you’re done.  Slice the cooked eggs into 12 equal portions and then either assemble into Breakfast Sandwiches or store in an air tight container and assemble the breakfast sandwich in the morning.   Honestly there are pro’s and con’s to both, so I’ll let you decide.

Are Sheet Pan Eggs and Ham freezable?

You definitely can freeze these Sheet Pan eggs, in fact you have 2 options.

  1. Place the cooked and cooled ham and egg portions in a freezer safe container layering freezer paper in between each layer.
  2. Assemble the cooked Eggs & Ham into sandwiches, wrap each individually in freezer paper and then store in a Freezer Bag.  Don’t forget to label them, especially if you’ve made some of them custom!  Scroll down for my bread recommendations, along with some other great options to switch things up.

I personally prefer to not assemble and freeze these as sandwiches, but that’s because I like a toasty bun.  My kids and husband are fine with a softer bread.  Often I make a double triple batch as part of meal prepping.

  • Keep one batch fresh in the fridge for the week; they last about 4 days.
  • Assemble 12 sandwiches, wrap and freeze
  • Place 12 portions in a freezer safe container

This way I can be totally flexible.  You can cook these sandwiches from frozen in the microwave or oven 1-2 minutes. You can use the egg portions frozen or thaw them and store them in the fridge. It’s whatever works for you!

Notes

These Sheet pan Ham and Egg portions will keep stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.  They can also be frozen in a freezer proof container, with freezer paper between each layer to keep them from sticking.   If you want to go ALL in meal prep, assemble into breakfast sandwiches, wrap and freeze.  I use parchment paper or freezer paper.  Both of these papers can be used in the microwave.  Only parchment can go into the oven. 
To Heat from frozen:  To heat from frozen, I use my microwave.  I like to heat them for 2 minutes, but I do one minute at a time, waiting about a minute in between.  I'm not sure why but it's better this way. 
To Heat from fresh:  Microwave for 15-20 seconds or until heated through. Let sit 30 seconds before eating.   You don't want to over heat these or the bread will get super chewy.  Trust me.
