1. Easy Buttermilk Baking Sheet Pancakes

Why get stuck at the stove flipping pancakes while everyone else is enjoying themselves at the table? Here's the solution: Bake the batter on a sheet pat and cut it into squares. Everyone wins. EllieClaire517 says, "Quick, easy and fun! It's a great time saver, and allows everyone to put on their own toppings."

Note: The recipe calls for buttermilk pancake mix, but you can use homemade buttermilk pancake batter. Watch the video to see how to bake the pancake.

2. Sheet Pan Brunch Totchos

Dishing up breakfast for a crowd just got a whole lot more fun. Crispy potato nuggets are baked with cheese, drizzled with make-ahead sausage gravy, and topped with smoked andouille sausage, avocado, green onions, pickled jalapenos, and fried eggs.

4. Roasted Leeks with Eggs (Paleo and Keto-Friendly)

Green onion and leeks are oven-roasted with ghee , drizzled with avocado vinaigrette, and topped with fried eggs. Beth1104 says, "This was a fabulous breakfast! Was so proud of myself...easy but tasty. I don't have a food processor so just whisked the avocado topping and was fine."


5. Brunch Baked French Toast

This sheet pan French toast turns out crispier and not as mushy as other French toast casseroles can be because you'll bake the bread all on one layer instead of stacking it up. "Excellent, quick breakfast bake," says Dawn. "Loved the ease of preparation without having to make it the night before it's needed."
