Omelet in a Bag Recipe

The original recipe came from PBS but I adapted it for my family.


  • 1 quart size freezer bag (must be freezer bag) per person
  • 1 large pot of boiling water
  • 1-2 eggs per person (egg whites can be used)
  • Fillings (according to individual taste): onions, peppers, garlic, tomatoes, cheese, potatoes, etc.
  • 1 Tbsp. heavy cream or evaporated milk (water can be substituted)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Seasonings of your choice (Italian seasoning, Herb de provence, onion powder, garlic powder)
  • 1 Tbsp. butter or the inside of the bag can be sprayed with vegetable or olive oil spray


Put all ingredients in freezer bag; squeeze bag until ingredients are well blended.

Drop into boiling water for 13 minutes only! A large stock pot can hold up to 6 quart size freezer bags. Carefully remove freezer bags after the 13 minutes; open bag at one end to release steam; open bag completely and slide cooked omelet onto plate.

I thank you for your great tip. I have laying chickens and i freeze the overage of eggs. this would be a great idea to pre-make and put in freezer. I would just omit the dairy. Add it before i put in the pan. thanks again.

For anyone that hasn't tried HAVE to. They are the most amazingly fluffy, moist eggs you will ever eat. No messy clean up and no burnt eggs on the bottom of your pan. Great for camping!

Great recipe...Thanks.
