This Sheet Pan Omelet is filled with baby spinach, bacon and plenty of cheese along with green onion and sweet red bell pepper for added flavor. It's an efficient way to meal prep breakfast for the week or cook omelets for a crowd in one fell swoop.
Sheet Pan Omelet 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.
Helpful Tips for Making Sheet Pan Omelet
A few pointers for making omelets in the oven:
- It's important to use a jelly roll pan with a rim to contain the omelet. A standard sheet pan won't work unless it has at least a one inch rim.
- 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.
- 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 omelet with a side of fruit, on toast or a bagel for an omelet sandwich or as I did, on a freshly baked Fluffy Southern Buttermilk Biscuit.

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?
Just follow the recipe as written, it's not necessary.
Can I use a muffin pan for this recipe?
You could probably adapt it, yes. You can see other egg muffin recipes here in the recipe index.
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!
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!
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.
Fast, easy and delicious. Will be made again and again.
Thanks so much!
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?
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!
Can pieces be frozen and microwaved or will the eggs get rubbery?
You can freeze it, sure. I've not had issue with the eggs becoming rubbery.
Can this be made the night before??
It can be made in advance and reheated gently in the microwave, yes.
Can this made in 9x13 pan?
Sure, just adjust the baking time. A thicker filling may need extra time to bake.
Very nice recipe and it looks easy
Thanks so much! Yes, very easy and versatile.
Can you use low fat milk? I'm on a doctor prescribed low fat diet for fatty liver issues.
