- Those who prefer a heartier breakfast can include diced potatoes or sweet potatoes.
- Leave the yolks out and use only egg whites to lighten things up.
- Try it with scrambled eggs. Whisk the eggs together and pour the egg mixture into biscuit rings on the pan.

Here are some pro tips to get the best results.
- Preheat the Oven. Allow the oven to fully preheat before placing your rimmed baking sheet in the oven.
- Line your baking sheet to prevent sticking. Foil, parchment paper, or a silicone mat works better than cooking spray to keep the eggs from sticking to the pan.
- Avoid Overcooking or Undercooking. You need to keep an eye out for when the eggs are done. Cooking time can vary depending on the egg size and how many you cook. A good rule of thumb is to begin checking them at around five minutes.
You can serve a slice of toast on the side with a little butter or jam. Air fryer home fries go well with sheet pan eggs too.
For a little healthy fat, try adding sliced avocado to your plate. It pairs well with the salty bacon and savory veggies. A side of fresh fruit like berries, sliced peaches, or melon can add a pop of color and sweetness
