An entire English Breakfast on a sheet pan?! Everything cooks together, with much less mess or fuss. Makes a hearty meal — just add toast!
Photography Credit:Nick Evans
A classic English breakfast is a really special way to start the day. It’s the kind of breakfast that will leave you nice and full through the early afternoon, at which point maybe you’ll want a light snack or some tea to get you to the dinner hour. It also happens to be a fantastic cure after a night of overindulging!
WHAT IS AN ENGLISH BREAKFAST?
There’s a lot going on with the full English breakfast. Typically, there would be bacon and a few types of sausage on the plate, along with simmered beans, roasted mushrooms and tomatoes, and fried eggs. Normally, these things are cooked in separate skillets, then assembled together on the plate.
By the way, an Irish Breakfast is similar, but usually includes different kinds of meat or other proteins and a few different puddings.
All in all, it’s a huge plate of food! It’s a delicious, hearty breakfast, but it can leave your kitchen in shambles with piles of pots and pans to clean.
HOW TO MAKE A SHEET PAN ENGLISH BREAKFAST
Cooking this entire meal in the oven on a single sheet pan is a beautiful thing—it uses far fewer pots and pans, and clean-up is very easy.
Since some of the components of an English breakfasts take longer than others to cook, the only trick is to make sure you add your ingredients to the sheet pan in the right order.
Start with sausage, then add the tomatoes, followed by mushrooms, and last but not least, the beans and eggs! (I keep the beans simple—I toss them with a few seasonings and then just heat them in a small, oven-safe skillet alongside the other ingredients.)
The Best Kind of Sausage for an English Breakfast
For the sausage, you can use any breakfast pork or chicken sausage, or a mix of different kinds. I recommend buying full sausages in the casings (6 to 8 ounces per sausage) so they cook evenly and slowly. The sausages will need 40 to 45 minutes to finish cooking in the oven, but I always recommend using a meat thermometer just to be sure you hit the correct internal temperature (160°F).
I’ll probably get some flak for skipping the bacon, but it was difficult to include bacon on the sheet pan without adding a lot of extra grease to the whole pan. Personally, I think it’s fine with a smaller portion of protein, but if you do want to add some bacon to the plate, I would cook it separately.
SERVE IT UP!
Taking the finished English breakfast out of the oven feels like pulling off a magic trick. Serve it up with some quick baked beans and crispy toast, and you’ll be all set until afternoon tea.

Sheet Pan English Breakfast Recipe
Total cooking time is about 45 minutes with ingredients added to the sheet pan progressively. Ingredients can be grouped together or mixed; whichever feels easiest to you as you make the dish.
- 1 1/2 pounds pork or chicken sausage (preferably links weighing 6-8 ounces each)
- 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
- 8 to 10 ounces baby cremini mushrooms, halved
- 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans
- 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon ketchup
- 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce
- 4 large eggs
- Salt and pepper
- 3 whole sprigs fresh thyme
- Toast, to serve
1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Rub sheet pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil to prevent the food from sticking.
2 Begin cooking the sausage: Arrange sausage links on the sheet pan and cook for 15 minutes.
3 Flip the sausage and add the tomatoes: Remove sheet pan from the oven and using tongs. Add the grape tomatoes, cut side up and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Return to oven and bake for another 15 minutes.
4 Meanwhile, prep the remaining ingredients. Toss the mushrooms with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper, and set aside. Drain and rinse pinto beans and stir them together with brown sugar, ketchup, and barbecue sauce. Transfer beans to a small oven-safe skillet or dish.
5 Pour off liquid and add the mushrooms. Remove the sheet pan from the oven (at this point, the sausages have been cooking for 30 minutes and the tomatoes for 15 minutes). If there is a lot of liquid on the sheet pan, carefully pour off the liquid; do not stir the tomatoes (they tend to fall apart if stirred and are better left alone).
Add prepared mushrooms to the sheet pan and return to the oven.
6 Add the beans and the eggs. After 15 more minutes (40-45 total minutes of baking), remove the sheet pan and again drain off any excess liquid. Flip the sausages again, but the other ingredients can be left alone.
Clear a little space on the sheet pan and nestle the dish of beans inside. (Alternatively, if you’re running out of space, you can bake the beans on a separate oven rack.)
Make four little pockets of space on the sheet pan for the eggs. Drizzle a tiny amount of oil in each area and crack in eggs. Place the fresh thyme sprigs here and there over the ingredients.
7 Bake the eggs: Bake for a final 5 minutes, just until the whites of the eggs set. (If you want the eggs cooked through with hard yolks, bake them for 8 minutes total.)
While the eggs bake, make the toast.
8 Season and serve: Remove sheet pan from the oven and allow to cool briefly. Sprinkle everything with salt and pepper. Slice sausage and divide between plates. Serve with beans, roasted tomatoes and mushrooms, eggs, and crispy toast.

- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder

- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
- 1 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Generously coat a large (12-by-17-inch) rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
Whisk eggs, milk, chili powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and cumin together in a large bowl. Pour onto the prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with spinach, cheese, bell pepper and bacon. Bake until just set, 22 to 28 minutes, rotating the pan from back to front halfway through to ensure even cooking.
Cut the eggs into 12 squares sandwich each square in an English muffin.
To make ahead: Thaw spinach and chop peppers up to 1 day ahead and refrigerate.

Making this Full Breakfast requires very little effort and is actually easy.
- finely chop sweet potatoes, onion, and sweet pepper
- place on a sheet pan and mix with earthy thyme and bright olive oil
- add breakfast sausages to the sheet pan with the sweet potato hash and cook in the oven for 20 minutes
- nestle the eggs in between the golden nuggets of sweet potato and plump sausages
- place a few pieces of buttered bread and bake for another 10 minutes
The result is so stunningly simple, beautiful, and delicious that I’m surprised why these kinds Sheet Pan Breakfasts aren’t more popular.
Perfectly charred sausages, sweet and slightly caramelized sweet potato hash, crunchy toast, oh, and the perfect oozing egg yolks! Add a few cherry tomatoes, a sprinkling of parsley or cilantro, a few shakes of black pepper and salt and dig in.
No frying pans to wash, no stove to clean, no stirring, no watching. Just add, roast, and enjoy!
I made this Full Sheet Pan Breakfast many times. It makes enough for two people but if I make it on a weekday then I have half in the morning and half for lunch. I just scrape the leftovers onto a pan and warm them up gently on the stove (I told you I could have eggs any time of the day).
Full English Sheet Pan Breakfast
Preheat the oven to 425 F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
Add the tomatoes to the left side of the sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and toss to coat. Arrange cut side up and season with salt and pepper.
Add the mushrooms to the center of the sheet pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and toss to coat. Arrange stem side up and season with salt and pepper.
Add the sausages to the right side of the sheet pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and toss to coat. Bake for 10 min.
Meanwhile, add the beans to an oven-safe dish.
Remove the sheet pan from the oven. Scoot the sausages down a bit and add the beans in the top right corner. Continue to bake for 10 min.
Meanwhile, make a 6-inch square tray with foil and spray with nonstick spray.
Remove the sheet pan from the oven. Scoot the mushrooms down a bit and add the foil tray in the empty space above. Crack in the eggs and season with salt.
Continue to bake until eggs are cooked to your liking, about 7 to 10 minutes.
One Pan English Breakfast
There's something about one-pot meals that just feels so liberating!
Adding ingredients in, watching the meal develop, and then (usually) serving it up, right from the pan.
Apart from this one-pan breakfast, here a few of my favourites:
- - The kids love meatballs so much, and this recipe makes it easy. - We had this again on Wednesday night, a family favourite. - Feels so summer-y, plus it makes great leftovers too. - Pasta, chicken and cheese? No-one's going to say no to that!
I'm fully aware that some people would prefer their eggs crispy, and others might be wondering why the heck I sprinkled parsley on beans.
But hey, those eggs are still delicious, and actually a little healthier for being poached in the beans and tomatoes. The parsley? Ok, I'll give you that one. I like pretty photos, and this one needed some green!!
We partly decided on this One Pan English Breakfast because it's St Georges day tomorrow - and what could be more English than a fry up with a builders brew?
- 3 potatoes, peeled
- 6 ounces bacon, chopped
- ½ cup chopped onion
- ½ cup chopped green bell pepper
- 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
- 1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes
- salt and pepper to taste
- 6 ounces Cheddar cheese, shredded
- 8 eggs
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, cool and chop.
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Add the onions, peppers, garlic, tomatoes, and potatoes. Season with salt and pepper and cook until vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle vegetable mixture with cheese. Crack eggs into the pan a couple of inches apart. Cover pan and allow eggs to cook to desired firmness. Remove pan from heat and serve.
Full English Breakfast Traybake
A Full English breakfast traybake with packed bacon, sausage, sautéed mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, hash browns and eggs, it really does have it all! The perfect complete breakfast all cooked together on one pan. This Sheet Pan Breakfast is Whole30, Paleo, Diary Free, Grain Free, Gluten Free, and Specific Carbohydrate Diet Legal.
Since moving to the UK I have developed an appreciation for a full English breakfast. Bacon, sausage, sautéed mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, hash browns and eggs, it really does have it all.
A full English is a dish I only ever order in restaurants following one very unsuccessful attempt to make it at home. There are so many different components that timing has to be perfect, otherwise you are left with a plate of cold bacon and mushy hash browns. If unlike me, you can master the timing, you will be left with a mountain of pots and pans to clean afterwards, and lets be honest, the last thing you want to spend your Sunday morning doing is washing dishes.
I have been doing a lot of traybake dinners recently, and wanted to see if I could make it work with a full English Sheet Pan Breakfast. I am so excited to report that it was a complete success! You only use a baking tray and a spatula, that’s it. Absolutely no other pots or utensils are required so cleaning up is a breeze, especially if you line the baking tray with tinfoil.
By skipping the frying pans and baking everything in the oven, this Sheet Pan Breakfast becomes a lot healthier too, with just half a tablespoon of olive oil used to prepare everything. To make this breakfast SCD legal I made the hash browns with cubed butternut squash, but you could easily substitute it for potato or sweet potato depending on your diet.
Here are a few other breakfast recipes that you might enjoy!

Sheet Pan Full English For Two
Bacon, sausage, eggs, toast, baked beans, mushrooms, & tomatoes – everything but the pudding, all cooked together on one easy-to-wash tray. While I actually really love black pudding, it’s mostly impossible to get in the States. Definitely give it a try if you find it for a proper British breakfast experience.
There are so many different parts to this breakfast that it actually somehow feels too easy? Butter bread. Crack eggs. Halve tomatoes.
That’s pretty much it. You got this.
We could even make this before the first cup of coffee if we had to… but let’s not.
Amazing smoky campfire version: Heat an empty sheet pan or extra-large cast iron skillet over hot coals, then follow the rest of the recipe. You might need to pack an extra-large cooler but I can’t imagine a more satisfying camp breakfast.
Serving a full english with brown sauce is classic, but in a pinch an American steak sauce like A1 is pretty close. Either way everyone will love this delicious breakfast spread!
11 Healthy One-Pan Brunch Recipes
There's no bigger brunch buzzkill than cooking up a complicated homemade meal only to have a stack of dishes waiting for you as soon as you take your last bite. Sure, eggs and breakfast potatoes or healthy pancakes are a delicious way to kick off a weekend day, but they require more effort than you're usually willing to put in, and more dishes than you're willing to clean. A counter cluttered with dishes doesn't exactly give off that "easy like a Sunday morning" vibe.
Plus, when everything comes together in one pan, the entire recipe is simplified. There are fewer elements to keep an eye on, which is key first thing in the morning (particularly if it follows a late night).
Whether you're cooking just for you or for an entire crew, these 11 one-pan brunch recipes can stand up to your go-to restaurant order. And because they're a breeze to throw together and clean up, you'll be free to get on with your afternoon adventures, even if your afternoon adventures involve a couch and Netflix.
