Easy Sheet Pan Omelet Recipe with Bacon and Spinach

I’m crazy about sheet pan meals. They’re so handy for getting dinner on the table in a hurry and the easy one pan clean-up doesn’t hurt. If you’re someone who likes to meal prep for the week, this technique works like a charm and the omelets reheat beautifully in the microwave in just a few seconds. My favorite thing about it is; everyone gets to eat at the same time making it especially handy for holiday mornings. Key ingredients you’ll need to make easy Sheet Pan Omelet in the oven:

  • Eggs – Large eggs.
  • Bacon – Classic bacon, cooked and crumbled.
  • Butter – 1 tablespoon of melted salted butter.
  • Vegetables – Baby spinach, red bell pepper and green onions.
  • Cheese – Shredded sharp cheddar cheese or a mix of your favorite variety of cheese. You could also use feta cheese.
  • Milk – Light cream or whole milk
  • Seasonings – Table salt or kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.
  • A few dashes of hot sauce, although this is optional.

How to Make the BEST Sheet Pan Omelet Recipe

A few pointers for making omelets in the oven:

  • Kitchen tools you’ll need: A 15×10 inch jelly roll pan or rimmed baking sheet, medium bowl, whisk, sharp knife and cutting board, cheese grater, measuring cups and spoons.
  • It’s important to use a jelly roll pan with a rim to contain the egg mixture for the omelet. A standard sheet pan won’t work unless it has at least a one inch rim.
  • Substitutions: The beauty of this omelet is, that you can very easily adapt the ingredients based on your family’s preferences or what you have on hand. Adapt using different veggies like steamed broccoli, mushrooms or cherry tomatoes. You could also use kale in place of spinach.
  • I used a combination of Monterey jack and cheddar cheese for this omelet, but again, you can switch it out using your favorite flavor.
  • This recipe can be halved and baked in an 8 x 8 inch pan for a smaller batch.
  • You can use ham, cooked sausage, Canadian bacon, chorizo or any other protein that you have on hand. It’s a great way to use up leftover holiday ham and stretch it into another meal. You could also go meatless and load it up with vegetables instead.
  • You can use egg whites in place of egg. Please note, the flavor will not be as rich, nor will it puff up quite as much due to the decreased volume.
  • Serve this omelette with a side of fruit, on toast or a bagel for an omelet sandwich. You can always opt to serve it just as pictured on a freshly baked Fluffy Southern Buttermilk Biscuit.
  • Store baked Sheet Pan Omelet in an airtight container chilled in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Reheat in single servings in the microwave.

    I have made this a number of times for our men’s and women’s bible studies everyone just loves it. I don’t eat bacon so I replace it with a turkey sausage and it’s wonderful. Thanks for the recipe.

    I’ll be adding this to my family Easter brunch. I like it better than the egg casseroles I’ve made in the past. It bakes faster and you can always tell when it’s done. I used ham instead of bacon. I may use sausage the next time. It really presents well.

    Very quick to put together. Lots of flavor. Pretty to look at with the spinach on top. Can mix it up to your own favorite foods. First time I made as stated. Everyone wanted the recipe. Next time 1/2 recipe n had ham with a grated left over baked potato. Didn’t have sharp cheese so put 1/2 cheddar n 1/2 Monterey Jack. I still liked the ordinal recipe best. 🌸

    This is fabulous! The second time I made it, I halved the recipe and used an 8″ x 11″ Pyrex dish – it took the same amount of time to bake.

  5. I see that you said mushrooms need to be cooked before adding to thus recipe. Do the peppers and green onions also need to be cooked before adding?

  6. Hi! Do you have any thoughts on adding shredded hash browns to it? If using frozen, I’m curious about moisture content. But I think the fam would enjoy it if it’s possible!

    1. It’s a great idea but I haven’t tested it. I would think they would need to be fully cooked and not just thawed. If you try it let us know how it goes!

  7. This was so easy to make and delicious! I always cook my bacon on a sheet pan in the oven so I used some of the bacon drippings instead of the butter.

    1. Melissa, I have a few vegetarians that I’m hosting for Easter brunch. Could I make this with just eggs and cheese without the meat? Would I need to adjust the recipe, with the exception of deleting the meat?
      Thank you.

      1. Hi Kathleen, you can omit the bacon with no other adjustments needed. You could also replace it with sautéed mushrooms or another cooked vegetable they may enjoy. I hope you and your guests love it!
