The Benefits of Sheet Pan Meals
Sheet pan meals are all the rage in the foodie world, and with good reason. They are often extremely easy to prepare, and the whole meal is cooked on one pan so there is far less clean up.
And there are so many great ways to use your sheet pans for healthy keto meals. From breakfast to dinner to dessert, there’s always something for everyone. I’ve made sheet pan pancakes, multiple sheet cakes, sheet pan chicken, and sheet pan salmon. And I have many more sheet pan recipe ideas running around this brain of mine, so I don’t plan to stop any time soon.
One of the huge advantages to cooking sheet-pan style is that you can easily make a large amount of servings at one time. If you have a large family or need to feed a group, they are perfect for easy and healthy keto recipes.
But they are also fabulous for keto meal planning and meal prep. If it’s just you, or you and your significant other, consider this method of large batch cooking so you can have plenty of leftovers for the week ahead. It will cut down on your prep time, and keep you on track.
How to make Sheet Pan Frittata
This is an easy recipe with only 6 ingredients, and it takes only about 40 minutes, start to finish. Here are my best tips to get a truly delicious sheet pan frittata.
- Consider the size of your sheet pan. First, it must have rims that are at least 1 inch deep to hold the frittata in. I like the smaller 15×10 jelly roll size, to make the frittata deeper. But a 17×12 pan works as well. Your frittata will cook a little faster.
- Line the bottom of the pan with parchment. This ensures the frittata will release easily from the pan. If you choose to skip the parchment paper, please grease your pan very well!
- Use frozen, pre-chopped veggies. Frozen vegetables are just as nutritious as their fresh counterparts. Sometimes even more so, since they are frozen at the peak of freshness, whereas fresh veggies may sit in the fridge and lose nutrients. And frozen chopped vegetables will make this easy sheet pan frittata even easier!
- Mix the batter up in a blender or food processor. I like blending the ingredients for an egg dish such as this, because it makes it far more cohesive and breaks up the yolks better than a whisk.
- Watch the frittata carefully. You don’t want to overcook it and how long it takes depends on both your pan and your oven. Make sure it’s set in the middle and then remove it.
- Customize your keto sheet pan frittata! Don’t feel locked into this broccoli cheddar version. Add your favorite veggies, meats, and cheeses, as you see fit.
No matter how you make your sheet pan frittata, it’s sure to be a hit. Ready to get started?
Sheet Pan Frittata
- 2 cups chopped frozen broccoli thawed
- 6 ounces cheddar cubed
- 12 large eggs
- ¾ cup whole milk ricotta cheese
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 6 pieces bacon, chopped cooked crisp
- Preheat the oven to 375F. Lightly grease a 15×10 jelly roll pan and line with parchment. Grease the parchment.
- Scatter the pan with the chopped broccoli and cubed cheddar.
- In a blender or food processor, combine the eggs, ricotta, garlic, salt, and pepper. Blend on high until well combined. Pour over the broccoli and cheddar. Sprinkle the top with chopped bacon.
- Bake 20 to 30 minutes, until the frittata is cooked through in the center and firm to the touch. Remove and let cool 5 minutes before cutting into slices and serving.
This is delightful! I roasted some frozen broccoli in my air fryer before adding it. I can’t wait to make this on our large family vacation. Quick and will feed a crowd!
Finally found a breakfast that my 10yr old T1D loves. I can make it on a lazy Sunday and just warm up in the morning before school. So healthy and his blood sugar numbers stay steady until lunch.
So glad to hear it!

Is there a reason for the ricotta? Would there be a substitute? Have already gone to the store and completely forgot it!
Give the frittata more volume and structure. You could maybe use some really well softened cream cheese, but you have to make sure it blends properly in there.
I am new to Keto so I am trying to get a handle on this way of cooking, I am concerned about getting enough fiber do you think it would be ok to add several tablespoons of Flaxmealto the recipe?
Please get your fiber from vegetables (make a side salad to go with this!). I think adding flax to a frittata would be awful.

if I have frozen spinach, how would I adjust the recipe?
Just thaw, drain, and squeeze out the moisture. You shouldn’t have to adjust anything.

Much appreciated the quick response! Thank you.
I love how easy this was to make and it was so delicious! 🙂
I think I may have to make this again tonight. I have ham and cheese on hand and some lovely roasted red peppers I packed in olive oil awhile ago. I’m thinking this is the absolute best application possible right now. So delicious, easy and good!

We love making frittatas at home! This sheet pan version makes it so much simpler to make!
It looks like a great, tasty, healthy meal. To me, it sounds perfect for lunch, or dinner. Thank you for preparing it.
Do you think I could freeze & reheat this meal?
Sure, I don’t see why not! Wrap it up tightly for freezing and re-heat gently so you are not re-cooking it.
