If you're looking for a simple meal for a crowd, you've come to the right place. Thanks to the mighty sheet pan, this is hands-down the most effortless way to prepare the traditional egg in a hole breakfast dish for friends, family, and brunch buddies in less than 20 minutes! The best part? While the recipe is super simple, the toppings can be everything but.

  • 12 slices brioche or thick-cut bread
  • 12 large Nellie's Free Range Eggs
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Your favorite toppings


  • Preheat oven to 400F and grease a sheet pan with cooking spray.
  • Using a 2 1/4-inch biscuit cutter, cut a hole in the center of each slice of bread. Discard bread centers (or save for yolk dipping!) and arrange bread slices on the prepared pan.
  • Crack an egg into each hole and carefully place sheet pan in oven. Bake for about 7 1/2 minutes for a runny yolk, and 10 minutes for a fully cooked yolk. Keep in mind that ovens vary and the eggs will continue to cook slightly once pulled out of the oven.


Need some inspiration for your toppings? Try a combination of bacon crumbles, goat cheese, hot sauce, basil, parsley, chopped tomatoes, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Or, keep it simple with a dash of everything bagel seasoning. You can also try Southwest-themed accouterments like salsa, sour cream, cotija cheese, cilantro, and even guacamole.
