Sheet Pan Egg in the Hole

Ever since me and my husband have been married, we have had an ongoing debate over how to make the perfect egg sandwich. In my family, you would make a sunny side up egg and place it on two grilled slices of bread. Mike’ts family made the a egg in the hole version using a skillet. It’s hard to change habits that you grew up with, but I think we have found even a better way to make our all-time favorite breakfast sandwich. Sheet Pan Egg in the hole!

This is a way easier version than the stove-top! I don’t what it is but the flavor was even better and I don’t think we will ever go back!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 12 slices bacon
  • 6 slices bread
  • butter, at room temperature
  • 6 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons Mozzarella cheese
  • salt and freshly black pepper, to taste
  • red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place bacon in a single layer onto a baking sheet. Place into oven and bake until par-cooked, about for 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  3. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
  4. Cut a 3-inch hole in the center of each bread slice.
  5. Butter one side of the bread slices. Place the bread onto the prepared baking sheet, buttered side down.
  6. Add bacon slices and eggs, gently cracking the eggs into each hole and keeping the yolk intact. Sprinkle with Parmesan and red pepper flakes; season with salt and pepper, to taste. If your bacon is too thick, cut it in half so the egg can sink into the hole.
  7. Place into oven and bake until the egg whites have set about 12-15 minutes.
  8. Serve immediately, garnished with chives, if desired.

  1. We have eggs and bacon for dinner on a regular basis. I really like this idea for brunch! Thanks for sharing with us at Creatively Crafty.

  2. This does look good.
    I thought this was going to be similar to a dish we have in England called Toad in the hole. Nothing to do with toads! It’s sausages in a Yorkshire pudding which is a batter based thing, kind of like a savoury pancake but a thicker mix. It’s difficult to describe without it sounding awful but it really is delicious!

  3. What a great idea, I can make a whole sheet pan full at one time, just love it! Thanks so much for sharing your post with us for our special St. Patrick’s Day Full Plate Thursday! Have a great week and come back soon.

  4. What a fabulous idea! Your sheet pan egg in the hole looks amazing, and I love how the bacon is actually a part of the egg in the hole! Thank you for sharing, and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Hope to see you again this week. Have a lovely week ahead!
