Sheet Pan Omelettes are a convenient way to cook a dozen eggs at one time for meal prepping.
Mornings are different this year around here than they have been in the past six years. My son moved up to middle school and his day starts two hours earlier than my daughter’s day. So fixing three separate breakfasts (including mine) is a reality now. Sheet pan pancakes have been a big help this week in getting back to our routine after Christmas break so I decided to see if I could make some sheet pan omelettes.
I searched quite a few recipes. I really wanted a light and fluffy texture to these eggs baked in a sheet pan. Cottage cheese and just a bit of water added to the eggs and then blended in a blender are what keeps these eggs light and fluffy like an omelette. The great thing about baking them in this way is that they cook evenly, which isn’t always the case when making individual omelettes in a pan on the stovetop.
In addition to eating a rolled omelette on its own I think you could slice up some of the egg and serve it on a simple green salad or roll an omelette slice into a tortilla for a breakfast on the go. My son definitely prefers them in a tortilla.
These sheet pan omelets are completely customizable. I chose to add some sautéed mushrooms but you could add some chopped ham and peppers or some cooked bacon and onion or really whatever you like. I would offer the suggestion that using a silicone Silpat liner in the bottom of the sheet pan will make the eggs release from the pan easier. My liners somehow got ruined when packing them up for our kitchen renovation (and I still haven’t ordered new ones yet) which is why one is not pictured in the pan.
Despite the lack of a silicone liner I was really pleased with how these sheet pan omelettes turned out and I’m excited to make them again to experiment with other fillings. As alway be sure to PIN this recipe!

Sheet Pan Omelettes
- 12 large eggs
- 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
- 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese grated
- 1 tbsp water
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 cup omelette fillings I used browned mushrooms
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Line a half sheet pan (12 x 17 inches) with a silicone Silpat liner. Or be sure to liberally grease the pan if you do not have a liner.
- Add the eggs, cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, water, salt and pepper to blender. Blend on high for about a minute.
- Pour the egg mixture into the prepared sheet pan. Evenly top the eggs with the desired fillings (I used mushrooms that I had browned in butter).
- Bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until the eggs are firm to the touch and cooked through.
- Allow the eggs to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Slice into 8 rectangles and roll into omelettes. Eggs will keep in an airtight container for up to three days. Or wrap each roll in a tortilla with some shredded cheese and freeze for up to one month.
Love omelettes for breakfast! And meal prepping helps with busy mornings too, love your post!
Thanks so much Trang!

How fun! I would never have thought to make an omelette in a sheet pan. You are right, it does look fluffy!! Hubby is going to simply adore this recipe when I make it for us!
They truly are fluffy. My kids devoured them too!
You had me at light and fluffy eggs!!
Such a perfect idea to simplify your life! I love a good omelette!
Thank you so much Beth
These would be so convenient to have on-hand! Do you think the cottage cheese could be subbed for lactose-free milk for a dairy-free alternative?
If you just need lactose free did you know they make a Lactaid Cottage Cheese? (https://www.lactaid.com/products/lactaid-lowfat-cottage-cheese). I think the milk would definitely give a different texture. Maybe use just 1/4 cup of milk. I can’t say for sure since I haven’t tried it.

Used this recipe with Jill’s sheet pan pancake recipe for an “after church” quick brunch. Both turned out very well and very fast with all the prep done the night before
So glad to hear you tried both recipes and they turned out! Thanks for the comment Andrea!

This is perfect for school mornings. I hate being stuck in the kitchen cooking when the kids need me to help them get ready. Thanks for the awesome solution!
You are so welcome. Both these and the sheet pan pancakes have been big hits in our house 🙂

Perfect for breakfast sandwiches. Slice to desired size, make toast and assemble. So easy.
I hadn’t even thought of that! Thank you for commenting with this suggestion!
I made this for Easter brunch. Delicious! Make sure your oven is level-mine isn’t, as I found out! They still turned out great. I added truffle salt to all and cheddar cheese to half. They were fun and easy to make (important in my kitchen) and very well-received.
So happy to hear this. Thank you for the positive review Angie!
