Author Notes

The idea of making breakfast sandwiches for a crowd shook up my long-standing belief that frittata was the best party-time egg dish. The wake up call came after one of those endless internet black holes where you wonder what your search term—I landed on this recipe on a website called Shaken Together. When I made it, I lowered the temperature so the eggs retain the softness you like in a scramble but never attain in the oven, added stuff to make it a little heartier (you could add anything you like in a frittata in a 2 to 3 ratio with the eggs), and ended up eating the little squares—with and without toast—for quick breakfasts and sliced on salads. Eventually I’ll share. —Ali Slagle

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Grease a half sheet pan very well (or use a Silpat) and heat the oven to 300°F. Crack all 12 eggs in a big bowl, add salt and pepper and the splash of cream, then whisk until well combined. Add the other stuff—except cheese—and gently fold until mixed.
  2. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Dot with cheese evenly, if using. Bake until the eggs are just set, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into squares if you’re egg sandwiches. Cut however else for whatever other purpose you’re dreaming up: slivers for salad, rectangles for bigger sandwiches or to-go lunches, and so on.
