10-Minute Dinner: Sheet Pan Egg-In-A-Hole /

Coming off a three-day weekend, I know myself all too well: I am going to try to fit FIVE days of work and productivity in to FOUR days. I figured the least that I could do for myself is make dinner super-easy, so I’m planning breakfast for dinner – on a sheet pan – that requires less than 10 minutes of work on my part!

Check out my Sheet Pan Egg-in-a-Hole recipe below. Pair with greens, fruit salad, or even bacon, and make as many or as few toasts as needed!

Sheet Pan Egg-in-a-Hole

Makes 4 servings

Line a sheet with foil for easy clean-up and if your sheet pan isn’t level. Top with crumbled bacon, green onions, or cheddar cheese. 


  • 4 slices whole-wheat or other whole-grain bread

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 4 large eggs

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • ¼ tablespoon Parmesan cheese, shredded

  • OPTIONAL: 4 teaspoons fresh thyme


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 

  2. Using a 3-inch round cookie cutter or the rim of a glass, press a hole in the center of the slice of bread.

  3. Lightly coat both sides of bread with cooking spray; place on a sheet pan coated with cooking spray or lined with foil and coated with cooking spray. Cook two minutes. Remove sheet pan from oven. Turn toasted bread over. Gently crack an egg into each toast hole. Sprinkle each with 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon cheese, and 1 teaspoon thyme, if desired. 

  4. Carefully return pan to oven. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until egg whites are set or desired degree of doneness. Serve immediately.
