Chrissy Teigen's recent announcement about her love of sheet pan meals made waves on the internet. Everyone, it turns out, loves sheet pan meals for their convenience and crowd-feeding capabilities. However, these easy-peasy, time-saving platters are often relegated to dinner food. And while chicken pieces and vegetables are perfectly suited to coming together on a cookie sheet, it's possible that using such a pan for breakfast food is an even better idea.

Here are six ideas for you (and Chrissy Teigen) that make breakfast for a crowd a breeze.

Fruit Crumble

You know how the best parts of a fruit crumble are those crispy, caramelized edges? This sheet pan crumble is basically a whole tray of those edges. You're welcome.

Eggs, Fritatta-Style

Eggs are a massive pain to make for a crowd. Luckily, you have a sheet pan and you know how to use it. Don't skimp on the cheese in these fritatta-style eggs.

French fries. Bacon. Fried eggs. If there's a better hangover breakfast than disco fries, I don't know what it is.

Go sip a mimosa while you let your oven do the annoying pancake work. Chocolate chips encouraged.

Bacon

If you've been spending a whole lot of time babysitting pork slabs over a hot stove, you might be a little mad about this one. Perfectly crispy bacon, every time.
