If you’ve ever come to my house for dinner, then I’ve probably made you “brinner.” Breakfast for dinner is one of my favorite things to make for a crowd, and it just got a little bit easier with the help of a trusty sheet pan. Seriously though, is there anything those magical things can’t do?

It doesn’t matter if you’re preparing a feast for your family, having friends over, or simply preparing a week’s worth of breakfast in advance — this smart hack is a must see!

Everyone likes to do more things in less time, right? Although whipping up a batch of scrambled eggs isn’t exactly rocket science, it would be nice to take a shortcut if it existed.

Over at PopSugar they tried using a sheet pan to make scrambled eggs. Remember back when we tried to make everything in muffin cups? It’s just like that, but far more simple and easier to clean up.

Just grease a sheet pan, whisk a dozen eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper, and pour the eggs on the sheet pan. Slide the whole thing in a 300°F oven. Around the 15-minute mark, the wibbly bits will firm up and you can remove the pan, top with your favorite add-ons, and slice and serve. Likewise, you can also let them cool and store them for up to a week. Awesome, right?

Think of it as a less interesting, slightly thinner frittata. That said, you could always add different bits of cheese or herbs, or top with your favorite vegetable compote to make things more personalized. Slices also pop perfectly onto a breakfast sandwich or bagel for on-the-go snacking!
