Ziplock Party Omelets

This is a great recipe for feeding a large crowd at an open house or family holiday gathering! Also good for camping. No oil or frying involved. Egg beaters may be substituted



  • Ham
  • Green Pepper
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Eggs
  • Quart Freezer Bags (Zipper kind)
  • Large pot of bowling water


Cut the Ham in cubes and chop vegetables. Place each side ingredient in a separate bowl with a serving spoon.

Scramble 2, 3, or 4 eggs in a bowl (small, medium and large serving) and pour into a quart freezer bag.

Let the guests pick their add-ins and place a spoonful of each of their choices. Zip the bag shut, forcing as much air out as possible. Drop bag(s) into a large pot of boiling water. Boil for about 5 minutes or until egg is firm. Cut open the bag close to the omelet and spill onto a plate. Guests can add salt, pepper or hot sauce to taste.

Editor's Note: Ziplock does not recommend boiling their bags, but say that their freezer bags are microwave safe. There are no BPA concerns with Ziplock brand bags, this may not be true with off brands.

I hope many of you have picked up on the available information on plastics. We cleaned them out of our house years ago after my husband attended a Real Estate lecture and a Ph.d in biology lectured on the dangers of the plastics to the environment and the planet. Later a major station had several episodes of a documentary showing the effects of the plastics on the animal and human life. Boys most particularily are affected.

Google Plastics, environment and begin to learn.
I wouldn't feel right about using them in our microwave either. Glass is best, it doesn't absorb, you need an inert product . Laurie Ontario
