My husband and I love going out for breakfast. It’s quick, it’s fun, it’s delicious! And most importantly I get to have all the goodies of potatoes and breakfast meat and perfect toast and eggs.
At home full breakfast is more difficult and rare. It requires a multitude of pans and time to manage them all.
It needs stirring of potatoes, making sure that sausages are cooked but not burnt, remembering to pop in more toast, trying to time it in a way that everything is ready at the same time. Then all the cleaning of splattered grease and sink full of dishes.
Last week I had an idea: what if I cook everything on one pan to avoid using three frying pans and stirring and watching them? It worked! It worked beautifully!

How to make Easy Full Sheet Pan Breakfast
Making this Full Breakfast requires very little effort and is actually easy.
- finely chop sweet potatoes, onion, and sweet pepper
- place on a sheet pan and mix with earthy thyme and bright olive oil
- add breakfast sausages to the sheet pan with the sweet potato hash and cook in the oven for 20 minutes
- nestle the eggs in between the golden nuggets of sweet potato and plump sausages
- place a few pieces of buttered bread and bake for another 10 minutes
The result is so stunningly simple, beautiful, and delicious that I’m surprised why these kinds Sheet Pan Breakfasts aren’t more popular.
Perfectly charred sausages, sweet and slightly caramelized sweet potato hash, crunchy toast, oh, and the perfect oozing egg yolks! Add a few cherry tomatoes, a sprinkling of parsley or cilantro, a few shakes of black pepper and salt and dig in.
No frying pans to wash, no stove to clean, no stirring, no watching. Just add, roast, and enjoy!
I made this Full Sheet Pan Breakfast many times. It makes enough for two people but if I make it on a weekday then I have half in the morning and half for lunch. I just scrape the leftovers onto a pan and warm them up gently on the stove (I told you I could have eggs any time of the day).
How to prep for Sheet Pan Breakfast
What I love about this breakfast is that it could be made even faster if all the prep is done in advance.
Just chop sweet potatoes, sweet pepper, and onion a day (or even two) before and keep in an airtight container in the fridge
Then in the morning just mix everything on a pan and bake.
It’s an epitome of a Mom-recipe: it requires almost no time to prep and no stirring and watching. Just a perfect Sheet Pan Breakfast without (almost) any effort.
This Sheet Pan Breakfast recipe will be perfect for Easter Breakfast also!
Variations for the Full Sheet Pan Breakfast
- You can add more sausage or use less (or omit altogether for a vegetarian version).
- You could use buttered bread or plain (buttered is so much better).
- You could omit the bread altogether for a gluten-free breakfast.
- You could cook the eggs a bit longer for firmer yolks or break up the yolks a bit with a knife when you add them to the pan.
- Add different spices and seasonings that you like: rosemary, oregano, paprika, garlic powder, etc.
Note: I wouldn’t recommend skimping on olive oil though. You need the sheet pan to be coated with it so that the eggs don’t stick.
You can double the recipe if your pan is big enough, just make sure that the potatoes are chopped small enough and are in one layer so that they cook properly. You may need to increase the initial cooking time a bit for that.
Once the sweet potato hash is cooked, just move the potatoes around and add eggs and sausages. You can place bread on top of the potatoes.
All ovens are different and some cook food longer and some faster. The timing in this recipe is based on my oven but you could need a couple of minutes less, or a few minutes more, especially for eggs.
I cook the potatoes and sausages initially for about 22-24 minutes and then once eggs are added to the sheet pan, I cook them for another 10-12 minutes and they result in soft yolk (not the fully runny one, but the soft and slightly oozing yolk that you can see in the video).
if your oven cooks faster, then try only 7-9 minutes after the eggs are added. So make sure to know your oven and check up on the cooking progress when you are making this Easy Full Breakfast.
