    Zipper-Bag Omelets

    This is a great way to do omelets for a crowd, such as a church picnic, sleepover party. A friend did them for a amily reunion, pairing up old foks with toddlers and he says it was great fun. They can be made the night before and left mixed in the bags in the fridge overnight (label the bags).

    Zipper-Bag Omelets


    sandwich-size zipper bags labeled with names, using waterproof markers
    2 large eggs per omelet
    add-ins such as:
    shredded cheese ham
    cooked bacon cooked sausage
    cooked chicken mushrooms
    green peppers chopped onions shredded potatoes
    chopped tomatoes


    Fill a standard kitchen pot halfway with water. Place pot on stove to boil on medium-high heat.

    While water is heating, crack two eggs into the zipper bag. Squeeze out most of the air and seal the bag securely.

    Shake to mix the eggs until they are an even pale yellow color.

    Add up to 2 teaspoons of shredded cheese. Add other ingredients as desired, no more than a teaspoon of each additional ingredient.

    Squeeze out as much air as possible and seal the bag securely.

    Using cooking tongs, place the sealed bag(s) in a pot of boiling water and cook for exactly 13 minutes; 4-6 bags will fit in a 3-quart pot. Use the tongs to remove the omelet from the pot, dry the bag if necessary, and carefully spill the cooked omelet onto a serving plate.

    Each bag serves one person. One 3-quart pot is sufficient to cook 4-6 omelets. For more omelets, use a larger pot.

    Note: Those who like salsa or hot sauce on their eggs should put it on top of the cooked eggs just before they eat. Mixing it in with the raw eggs makes a truly gross blob of stuff.

    I totally did something similar to this for my siblings when I was little! I actually wrapped everything up in foil pouches and cooked on top of a wood stove, but same idea!

    WE did these!!! But be careful sometimes you can taste the bag in the omlettes, just depending on the bags...
