Assembling the sheet pan

Getting this sheet pan breakfast ready to bake could not be easier once you’ve got everything drained, rinsed, sliced and diced. Simply add all the veggies to a bowl with the seasoning and aromatics, and toss to coat with a bit of neutral oil. I like to use avocado oil. Transfer the mixture to a sheet pan sprayed with cookie spray, top with desired sausage, and pop it into a hot preheated oven.

Baking the sheet pan breakfast

You’ll first bake the sheet pan undisturbed for 10 minutes. At this point, you’ll take it out and give everything a quick stir.This helps eve-thing cook and brown evenly. Bake another `10 minutes, then add eggs carefully to the top, and bake an additional 5-7 minutes. Next up garish with avocado and tomatoes, and serve with toast points or crusty bread. A little hot sauce never hurt, either.

Suggestions and Substitutions

Can I use another type of sausage?

Definitely! Some of my favorite subs for the turkey sausage are chicken breakfast sausage, pork chorizo, or pork breakfast sausage. This recipe would also be great with soy chorizo or a meat alternative for a vegetarian or vegan option!

Can I omit or sub the tomatillos?

Sure! I’ve found the dish is great with them and without. You could also sub in some quartered cherry tomatoes, or even canned tomatillos!

Don’t feel like baking the eggs?

If you don’t want to bake the eggs, you could either leave them out entirely, or prepare them separately. The cook time for the rest of the ingredients will stay the same.

Other great hominy recipes

I love to work with canned Mexican style hominy, It has such a great flavor and texture. I always keep a can in my pantry to add to breakfast, soups or stews. Some of my fave hominy recipes on the blog using hominy are Huevos Rancheros Skillet with Chorizo, and my Slow Cooker Mexican Pozole Verde!
