Quick and Easy Sheet Pan Meals

Let’s not forget, you can serve sheet pan meals any time of the day or night.
Make them for breakfast. Hello, I’m talking to you, Oven Baked Scrambled eggs.

So, I think that making sheet pan meals that can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, may be the best thing ever. Case in point: Baked Eggs with Roasted Spring Vegetables!
How healthy are baked eggs?
In general, eggs are a great source of protein, vitamins, and minerals. I’m pretty sure that most of us already know how healthy spring vegetables like beets, kale, spinach, and radishes are. Spring vegetables are the most nutrient-dense. Really, they have more nutrients due to being in season and even better if you buy organic. More on that below!
Okay, so we know that this egg bake recipe is uber good for you, a superfood meal for sure. That’s a good thing. To increase the healthiness even more, I’m using organic vegetables and Eggland’s Best organic eggs.
I bet I know what you’re going to ask next… Should I buy organic produce? My answer is a resounding YES, definitely choose organic when you can!
Why? A study by Newcastle University in the United Kingdom found organic produce has 40 percent higher levels of some nutrients (including vitamin C, zinc, and iron).
Okay, but what about the eggs?
Are organic eggs better than regular eggs?
Let’s look at a few facts about Eggland’s Best organic eggs. I think you’ll see that they speak for themselves:
- 100% USDA organic certified.
- The happy hens are fed certified organic, all-vegetarian hen feed.
- Farm Fresh
- Cage Free
- Excellent source of Vitamins D and E.
- Excellent source of Vitamins B2, B5, and B12.
- 25% Less saturated fat than ordinary eggs
- 115 mg Omega-3 (in Eggland’s Best Large eggs)
So happy, organic-fed hen lays healthier, organic eggs. What’s not to love?!
HOW to make a sheet pan meal with vegetables and eggs!
Okay, so let’s jump to the recipe. To make this one pan meal, all you need to do is first toss sliced/chopped spring vegetables in a little bit of olive oil and spices, roast on a sheet pan for 20 minutes, then add your eggs, kale, lemon, optional parmesan, and bake for another 10 minutes or until the eggs set.
That, my friends, is what we call EGGCELLENT! You’re welcome. Haha!
