Omelet in a Bag

I found this recipe somewhere online and thought that it would be fun to have this one in our recipe section. It sounded like something easy, that we could do at Bullards!

Have your guests use a permanent marker to write their name on a quart size freezer bag.

Crack two large or extra-large eggs into the bag (more than two will not work), shake and knead the bag to break the yoke and combine the eggs.

Provide a variety of ingredients such as cheese, ham, onion, green pepper, mushrooms, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc

Have the guests add the prepared ingredients of their choice to the bag and shake. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.

Place the bags into rolling-boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8
of these omelets in a large pot. Use another pot of boiling water if you have more than 8 omelets to make.

After 13 minutes, have the guest take their bag, open it and the omelet will roll out easily onto their plate. Be prepared for everyone to be thrilled.

A serving suggestion would be with fresh fruit and a coffee cake, muffins, caramel rolls, jelly rolls, etc

The omelets are a great conversation piece and everyone gets involved in the process. It's easy, convenient, delicious and low-fat!!

I made this for the two of us on Sunday morning. My better half was scoffing at me wondering just what the heck I was doing. Nevertheless I persisted and followed the directions exactly...

This recipe turned out fantastic. I never could make an omelette before - but I can now!

Thanks Elsie!

Thanks Elsie! That is my kind of cooking. This is a print it and save it, or as some would say...a keeper.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news as i liked this recipe and posted it on another forum.
Just had a heads up from another camper that cooking in the freezer bags may be a health hazard, may or may not be a problem but i feel it should be passed on.

Hi: Years ago my wife left instructions for the kids to put the pan of chicken wings in the oven @ 5 p.m. The only thing she forgot to say was to take off the plastic wrap before putting them in the oven... They were definately a health hazard Alf S. North shore of Lake Erie

Im glad you brought up this. We should be clear though. Zip Lock bags are different then Freezer bags. This article is talking about Zip Lock bags. I dont know what the freezer bags are made of.

Several companies Do make bags designed to cook in. ie Renolds, etc.

We tried this on our Thanksgiving week-end. Great idea, just don't use dollar store zip-lock bags.
The bags split just as I went to lift each one out of the water.

I can vouch for the necessity of using ZIP-LOC brand bags (By Johnson and Johnson). The cheaper bags do not work as well. We buy our zip-locs in bulk from Costco.

PS: do not add any liquids like milk, etc - they will not work out.
