Omelets in a Bag Recipe

Just an FYI to let you know, if you didn't notice already, that a new recipe was posted. It's a fun family recipe making omelets in a ziplock bag- very simple yet tasty!

Update: Here's the recipe now that it's not in the sidebar.

Omelet in a Bag by Rachel

Ingredients and Supplies:
Eggs (about 2 per person for a medium sized omelet)
Grated Cheese (1/4 C per person)
Freezer Bags (1 Quart, such as Ziploc or other brand)
Salt and Pepper

Additional Optional Toppings: (1/4 C per person)

While making omelets begin boiling a pot of water.

There are two ways to put these together. One way is to mix the eggs in a separate bowl and then put 1/2 C egg mix in each bag. The other way is to directly crack the eggs into the freezer bags and then squeeze and smash the outside of the bag to mix up the eggs- children love doing this.

To make a medium sized omelet add cheese (1/4 C) and any additional toppings (about 1/4 C). Don’t add salt yet, as the eggs will take longer to cook if you do. For a larger omelet just add more eggs, cheese, toppings, and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

Close bags, removing as much air as possible, and then put into boiling water. Cook for 15 minutes. Remove bags onto a plate, tray, or towel. Carefully open bags and dump omelet onto your plate. Add salt and pepper to taste. Warning: They will steam when you cut them open, so it’s a good idea to cut up your omelet and let it first cool for a bit.

Note: If you’re making different kinds of omelets you can label the bag with a magic marker.
