egg in hole sheet pan breakfast
  • Makes 2 servings
  • Prep Time 2 minutes
  • Cook Time 12 minutes


  • Avocado oil or ghee, for the pan
  • 2 slices bread of choice
  • 2 large organic, pasture-raised eggs
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbs. minced chives (optional)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil and generously grease the foil with the avocado oil or ghee.
Use a biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass to cut a hole in the center of both slices of bread. Place bread slices and circles on the prepared pan.
Crack an egg into each hole and sprinkle with the salt and black pepper. Carefully place the sheet pan in the oven and cook for about nine minutes for runny yolks, or up to 12 minutes for fully set yolks.
Garnish the eggs with the chives and serve with the toasted circles alongside.
Make It Your Way: Swap the minced chives for a few dollops of pesto, a drizzle of chili crisp, a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, or a bit of whatever condiment you love most.

An Egg-cellent Morning

Tip: The sheet-pan method accommodates multiple servings at once. Double or triple the recipe so everyone in your household can start their day with high-quality protein and omega-3 fats.
