Sheet Pan Chorizo and Egg Bake

Sheet pan cooking for breakfast or brunch tends to be overlooked, but it is such an easy way to get a meal on the table at any time of day. We love this one for it’s unique Mexican inspired flavors that makes for a really great brunch.

Tips for sheet pan cooking:

  • Read the recipe all the way through (of course) and plan to use a timer! Most recipes require different cooking times, so make sure to use a timer so you can truly walk away from the oven and not have to worry about when your adding anything in to the oven.
  • Do the prep ahead of time: Cut vegetables, make sauce or mix spices the night before or that morning if you are looking to speed up the process when it comes time for the actual cooking.
  • Use parchment paper to make clean up a breeze.
  • Use the correct size sheet pan. When we say sheet pan we are referring to the rimmed half sheet pan which is 18″ by 13″. The size of the sheet pan matters because you do not want to overcrowd the pan when cooking, so if you are using a smaller sheet pan you may need to use 2 to achieve the same result.

Sheet Pan Chorizo and Egg Bake

Sheet pans for the win! This hands-off cooking method makes getting a delicious meal on the table simple and the clean up is a breeze. We just love that utilizing the sheet pan allows for unattended cooking, giving us EXTRA time in our busy lives.

Sheet Pan Classic Breakfast Bake

We are so excited to kick off this sheet pan series! Each Wednesday for the next few weeks we will be sharing sheet pan meals that are simple to make and packed with flavor.

We love sheet pan recipes for so many reasons: they’re easy to prepare and easy to clean. When creating this series our main goal was to always have a meal packed with flavor while also being hands-off to give you a little extra time in your life. Yes, there are a few steps to follow in these recipes, but aside from mixing a few ingredients together or chopping a few vegetables the cooking process is mostly hands-off! Check out the tips below to make sheet pan cooking a breeze.

Making a full on brunch spread on a sheet pan allows for a more relaxing morning before guests arrive, and if cooking for a crowd, it will certainly be way more efficient. You can easily double the recipe to use two sheet pans and create a full meal for 8 people without breaking a sweat. And you can even enjoy that mimosa while you’re at it!

Sheet Pan Classic Breakfast (Eggs, Bacon, & Home Fries!)

Prep Time 00:10 Cook Time 00:40 Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 large yellow potatoes, cleaned and diced to 1/2" cubes (see note)
  • 1 medium onion, small dice
  • 1 red or green bell pepper, small dice
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil (see note)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 6 pieces nitrate-free bacon
  • 4 pasture-raised eggs, more as desired
  • fine sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste (see note)

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400ºF and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine diced potato, bell pepper, onion, avocado oil, and spices. Toss to combine and pour onto a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove pan and move vegetable mixture to one side of the pan. Add bacon in strips to the other side and return to oven for 12 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and move bacon to the side.  Move the hash brown mixture around with excess bacon fat to get the potatoes nice and crisp. Move potatoes back to the side and create four small divots in potatoes to crack the eggs. Crack eggs in the divots and return to oven to bake for 8-10 minutes. Bake until eggs are cooked for desired texture. 8 minutes are soft runny yellow yolks or 10 minutes for more fully baked eggs.
  6. Plate the hash browns and eggs on to a plate and briefly drain the bacon of excess fat on paper towel before plating and serving. Salt and pepper to taste (but taste first as the bacon does add salt to the dish).

Recipe Notes

  1. Can use sweet potatoes if desired
  2. We only use a small amount of oil here to help the vegetables cook because the bacon will release fat that we will use to crisp up the hash browns later.
  3. The bacon releases a lot of salt, which is mixed in with the hash browns so make sure to cook the recipe through and then taste and add salt (and pepper) then.

Easy Pizza Scrambled Eggs

Easy Pizza Scrambled Eggs

If omelettes or scrambles are the option, I go scramble every single time. A well-made scramble is my favorite! It can’t be too dry, and has to be soft and creamy without adding any milk!

When I really wanted pizza one morning and ended up with this scramble, I knew it would be on repeat. It’s SUPER simple to make, and SO delicious.

Easy Pizza Scrambled Eggs Without Milk

Scramble FAQs!

How do you make perfect scrambled eggs?

  • Place over medium-low heat and add butter or oil of choice until hot. Pour in eggs.
  • As eggs begin to set, gently pull the eggs across the pan with a spatula, forming large soft curds/ribbons.
  • Continue until you reach your desired scramble egg consistency! I like mine soft and fluffy.

Do you have to put milk in scrambled eggs?

No! When scrambled eggs are made right, they’re light, soft, and creamy without the addition of milk or  cream.

What can I put in my scrambled eggs?

You are going to love this pizza scramble. It’s one of my favorite unique ways to spice up scrambled eggs!

Huevos Rancheros

Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 20 minutes Yields 4

Ingredients

    Huevos Rancheros Sauce

    • 1 onion, diced
    • 1 red pepper, diced
    • 1 green pepper, diced
    • 1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1 14.5 can crushed tomatoes
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • 1/4 teaspoon Paprika
    • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    • Optional: 1/4 dried chili pepper, finely chopped. Depending on the type of dried chili you use, it could be very spicy. Depending on how much you love spice use more or less. If you love spice and want to try more, hold off on adding chili powder until the last step.

    Refried Black Beans

    Everything Else

    • 4 eggs, fried or cooked as desired
    • 4 tortillas, store-bought (Siete Foods Tortillas) or homemade (see notes)
    • 1 Scallion, sliced for garnish
    • 1 Jalapeno, sliced for garnish
    • 2 tablespoons Cilantro, roughly chopped for garnish
    • 1 Avocado, sliced into half moons for garnish
    • 1 lime, sliced into wedges to serve with!
    • Optional: 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

    Directions

    1. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, sauté onion, peppers, and garlic for 2-3 minutes until fragrant, or until onion begins to turn translucent.
    2. Add in all spices, except for the dried chili if using, and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
    3. Pour in crushed tomatoes and bring the mixture to a simmer. Simmer for 5-10 minutes. Taste and adjust spices as needed. If the sauce is too chunky, place in a high-speed blender and pulse. If using the optional dried chili, mix in after blending.
    4. While the sauce is simmering, make the refried beans. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add in garlic and spices and let cook until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Drain the liquid from the beans and rinse well, then add the beans to the saucepan. Turn down heat and stir well. Add in lime juice and water. Simmer for 1-2 minutes. Take off heat and mash well using a potato masher or fork. Set aside until ready to serve.
    5. Fry eggs, or cook  them as desired and set aside.*
    6. In a large skillet, heat avocado oil over medium-high heat. Add tortillas and cover the skillet. Heat until slightly browned on both sides, should take about 2-3 minutes. If using cheese, place 3 tablespoons of cheese on the tortillas once you have flipped them once and cover until the cheese has melted. Place the tortillas on a plate and set aside.
    7. Assemble: Spread huevos rancheros sauce on each tortilla. Add the refried black beans, scallions, cilantro, jalapeno, and top with an egg. Squeeze a little lime over the eggs and devour!
