We all need to feed our large family breakfast and it would be nice to prepare a whole meal for your large family without making a lot of dishes and spending extra time in the kitchen. Follow this Large Family Bacon and Eggs in a Basket Sheet Pan recipe to make a simple meal. Your loved ones will look forward to the crisp bacon, tasty eggs, and any extras that you would like to serve with these ingredients. All you need to get started is bread, eggs, butter, and bacon.
What Other Bread Can I Use to Make the Bacon and Eggs in a Basket?
If you really need to keep things simple, you can buy bread at the store. However, with just a little preparation, you can make your own bread. I have recipes for honey wheat bread, Potato Bread, White bread, and white bread without yeast.
Can You Use Any Type of Bacon?
Use any bacon that your family would normally eat for breakfast. You can use traditional pork bacon in a variety of flavors, including cracked pepper, maple, brown sugar, and hardwood smoked. If you do not normally eat pork bacon, substitute it for turkey bacon. Different food brands offer a variety of turkey bacon options that taste great. Either way, you can make all the bacon in the air fryer to save time.
Additional Ingredients to Add to Your Bacon and Eggs in a Basket
You can keep it simple by sticking to the recipe or jazz it up by adding extra ingredients to your Large Family Bacon and Eggs in a Basket Sheet Pan recipe. For example, you may want to wait until the eggs, bread, and bacon are almost fully cooked before pulling the sheet pan meal from the oven, sprinkling cheddar cheese on top, and putting back in the oven for a few extra minutes to melt.
While cheese is a great addition to this meal, there are other great ingredients you can add, including chopped green peppers, chopped red onions, or avocado slices. If you add the onions and peppers, put them in the oven with the rest of the ingredients. If you decide to use avocado slices, add them after you bake the bacon and eggs in the oven.
What to Serve with Your Bacon and Eggs in a Basket
After preparing the Bacon and Eggs in a Basket, you may want to add some easy sides to expand your breakfast meal. You might want to add sweet bread like banana bread, Cinnamon swirl bread or Double chocolate Banana bread. You might even want to serve them with a side of pancakes, waffles, and french toast with syrup. The syrup adds a sweet touch that goes with the eggs, ham, cheese, and peppers in the omelet. I have a lot of pancakes, french toast, and waffle recipes!

Make a simple, dairy-free breakfast with this Large Family Bacon and Eggs in a Basket Sheet Pan recipe. It is a meal that you can prepare with ease when you want to feed the family a wholesome breakfast.
- 16 slices bread
- 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 16 eggs
- ¼ cup butter, melted
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Prepare a large (21 x 15 inch) rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper spritzed with nonstick cooking spray.
Using a round cookie cutter or biscuit cutter, remove the middle from each slice of bread. Arrange the bread slices on the baking sheets with the cut circles.
Melt the butter and brush butter on top of the circle cut out pieces. If you are making this dairy-free, then use oil to brush the tops or dairy-free butter spread replacement.
In the hole of each bread slice, add a sprinkle of bacon.
Carefully crack an egg over each hole and allow the egg to rest in the hole. If desired, beat the egg slightly with a fork. Top with another sprinkle of cooked bacon. Season with salt and black pepper if desired.
Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the eggs are set to your desired doneness.
