How to Make Sheet Pan Cheesy Baked Egg Toast
To make this fantastic Sheet Pan Cheesy Baked Egg Toast, you will need the following ingredients:
- Shredded cheese
- Seasonings, like salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder
- Softened butter
You will also need the following items:
- Pointed teaspoon (I use a long iced tea spoon for this)
- Large baking sheet
- Non-stick silicone baking mat
- Cooking spray
- Small basting brush
To get started, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lay the non-stick silicone baking mat in your large baking sheet. Spray the edges of your baking sheet with cooking spray (as the bread and cheese will touch the ends). Lay your slices of bread on the silicone baking mat and make it so they fit tight and nicely. You might need to puzzle piece them to get them to fit, but because they are spongy and fresh, they will fit.
Use the edge of your teaspoon to make a rectangle in the bread, pressing down hard to create a “well” where the egg will lay once cracked. Once you create the rectangle, you can use your fingers to ensure the bread is as flat as possible, providing the egg as much room as it needs.
Using a small basting brush, spread softened butter on the bread edges that weren’t pressed. Because the bread touches in the baking pan, it’s easy to do two pieces at a time and get it well and coated. The butter adds a wonderful flavor and helps the cheese stay on the bread.
This is what the bread in the baking pan should look like when it’s fully buttered on the edges.
From here, add your seasoning to both the buttered edges and in the pressed wells.
Crack one egg into each pressed buttered and seasoned piece of bread. Continue for all the remaining pieces of bread.
This is what your pan will look like when all the eggs have been cracked.
Go ahead and season lightly one more time. For me, I only add a little pepper and onion and garlic powder, as my salt is fresh ground Himalayan sea salt and pretty potent, I don’t want to over-season my dish. You can make it as seasoned as you like, it looks gorgeous after it’s baked!
Now’s the super fun part – adding all the cheese! Add the shredded cheese to all the buttered parts, and do it up real nice. I went heavy with it, as I’m a huge cheese lover. Who doesn’t want all that cheesy goodness, you know? I let it alllll go on this pan of Cheesy Baked Egg Toast. Heck yeah! The more cheese the better!
Here’s your ready-to-bake Cheesy Baked Egg Toasts in the sheet pan, isn’t it freaking gorgeous?
Slap that baby in the preheated oven on the top rack and keep it there with the oven light on for about 20 minutes. After that, place it on the bottom rack for the final 10 or so minutes. I live in a high elevation, and it takes about 30 minutes for it to be a semi-fried egg. Depending upon the level of doneness for your eggs, it’s going to be finished anywhere between 20-30 minutes.
Fresh from the oven, will you just look at that? MY GOD. It’s a Cheesy Baked Egg Toast dream, I tell you!
Grab your favorite spatula and get on in there and appreciate the gorgeousness of the cheese pull! Yesss!
Pull, baby, pull! Look at it! All the heart eyes!
Go ahead and ogle, it’s worth it. Inhale deeply, too. You’re about to bite into heaven on a plate!
Place one or two on a plate and serve! Gahhh, will you just look! Look at that! The seasoning! The melty yet crispy cheesy goodness! G’head, take a bite! You’ve earned it!
