Omelet in a bag - step one
First, prepare your omelet ingredients.We had diced ham, chopped chicken, onions, green peppers, cheese, and salt and pepper. Everyone assembles their own customized ingredients into their individual quart-sized plastic freezer bag.
Add your eggs!
After you put in your ingredients, break an egg or two into your bag, and mash it up until the egg and all ingredients are mixed together. (Don't get shell in your bag, unless you want your omelet to have extra crunch!) Squeeze all the air you can out of the bag, seal the zip opening, and then put it in a pot of boiling water. We boiled our water on a Coleman camp stove. Check your bag once in awhile, and swish it to other spots in the pot so that it cooks evenly. (Sorry, I didn't time how long this takes, but allow several minutes...the eggs are thicker cooking them this way). You can cook several omelets at once.
Remove your cooked omelet from the bag.
When your eggs are the consistency you like, remove the bag, empty it on a plate, and enjoy your "breakfast burrito!" These were very delicious, and I think we'll do these at home on the stove on those mornings when everyone wants an omelet at once.
Voila! Omelet from a bag.
Breakfast is served!
I don't know what it was about this cooking method, but the flavors from the onions and peppers really permeated the omelet, and it was delicious! Besides, everything tastes better outdoors.
If you are concerned about cooking in plastic bags, you may want to read up on it. Here is one link that might be helpful. I think the risk of a once-a-year bag omelet is worth it for the convenience and taste!
