Freezer Bag Omelets

Ingredients

  • 1 quart size freezer zip loc bag
  • 2 eggs
  • your choice of fillings (cooked ham, cooked bacon, onions, peppers, shredded cheese, etc.)
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste with other herbs of your choice
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon evaporated milk (opt.) for a more creamier texture to the omelet.
  • Ad

  • 1 pot of briskly boiling water (preferably in a large stock pot or pasta pot). This pot should hold 6 quart size freezer bags.

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.

*WARNING! 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.

Toxics are released in the food when boiling freezer bags. Do not do this.
