This is a fun, easy and fast way to make all those different omelets, for a family breakfast.
Put the various chopped ingredients you may want, into individual bowls. (ham, cheese, peppers, tomatoes, onions, etc.)
Give each person a ziplock freezer bag, with their name written on it in permanent marker, and 2 eggs cracked into it. Have everyone add their own ingredients into the bag they have. Zip up the bags. Now you have your individual omelets ready to cook. You can place all of the bags in a large pot of water, you have pre-boiled. Boil this for 15 - 20 minutes. You can take this time to make toast, or the rest of the meal. Each omelet will slide out of the bag, and onto the plate, of whoever created it and they all are ready at the same time! No more waiting for everyone's to be cooked, one at a time! (These can also be done in the microwave, in individual bowls.)
We do this on holidays, when we have a lot of family eating together.
We too have done this for many years. It makes a GREAT CAMPING breakfast. Just slice and dice meats, cheese and veges before leaving home. store in ziplock bags until ready to assemble. Also, very good idea for scouts. (10/03/2005)

We also do this recipe, but our family adds what we think puts the "icing on the cake": After the omelettes are on your plates, cooked, add a tbsp of mild salsa and a tbsp of sour cream. So yummy and adds such a wonderful taste. (11/07/2005)
