When having a crowd over for breakfast/brunch instead of cooking scrambled egg orders with everyone wanting different ingredients, get everyone's order and put in plastic bags with each persons name on top or assign a number to each person. Put all the bags in a deep pot of hot boiling water. Boil for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how many bags you boil. Saves on cleanup with everyone having warm food.

This recipe is called Omelet in a Bag. You need to use the quart freezer bags the you press to close, not the ones with a 'zipper tab'. When done, the 'omelet' rolls out in the shape of an eggroll. Be careful handling the hot bags.
As of August 2006, the ZIPLOC company does NOT recommend using their bags to boil food. ZIPLOC brand Bags are made from polyethylene plastic with a softening point of approximately 195 degrees Fahrenheit. When exposed to boiling water, the plastic could begin to melt.
We've done this too but found you have to use good quality zip top plastic bags. We tried inexpensive zipper top bags & some of them leaked at the corners & else-ware while boiling. Quite a mess. We did have fun though as we did it with a group of friends, so it was like a "scrambled egg party".
This is a Girl Scout camping recipe. I've tried it and it works great.
