  • your choice of fillings (cooked ham, cooked bacon, onions, peppers, shredded cheese, etc.)
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste with other herbs of your choice

Directions

Add ingredients in the freezer zip lock bag, close bag and release air out of bag; "massage" the ingredients until well mixed; drop into the boiling water and boil for 13 minutes only. Remove carefully from water; open bag slowly to release steam; roll omelet out of bag onto a plate.

This is a great recipe for camping or a sleep-over for teenagers. Each person can prepare their own freezer zip lock bag with the omelet ingredients. Adult supervision should be used for removal of the bags from the boiling water.

This recipe was adapted from a PBS Hunting Show.

What a great idea for campers. I'll be passing this along to all my friends and family. And just the thing to let my great grandkids do for breakfast when they come to visit. I have a 5 year old great granddaughter who loves to help cook.

If it's not safe to use Ziplock bags for your eggs in a bag, what do you suggest we use?

If you're going to do omelets or burritos for a group, just prep your add-ins ahead of time, put into individual bowls with spoons/forks, and scramble all your eggs at once. let everyone put however much of whatever onto their plates or a tortilla, and you're good to go. This works really well for camping trip breakfasts as well as sleep-overs.
