Make a Ziplock Omelet!

ZIPLOC OMELET

(This works great !!! Good for when all your family is together. The best part is that no one has to wait for their special omelet !!!)

Have guests write their name on a quart-size Ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker.

Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.

Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc.

Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shake. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.

Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes [we did 15 minutes]. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more, make another pot of boiling water.

Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.

Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake; everyone gets involved in the process and a great conversation piece.

Re: Make a Ziplock Omelet!

That sounds like lots of fun! I wouldn't have thought a regular freezer bag could be boiled for that long!

I'll have to send this around.

Re: Make a Ziplock Omelet!

That's a very popular camping breakfast!
It's hard to bring whole eggs into the backcountry (rafting, hiking or horses) unless they are hardboiled. We would crack them into ziplocks and eat them the first few days if we only had limited cooling capabilities. With an RV we were able to have them every day for as long as we were away. Much easier to store eggs in ziplocks than in cartons in those tiny fridges.

Re: Make a Ziplock Omelet!

lol right after i moved out i did something similar, still do if i'm in a rush.

Microwave egg sandwich - for 1 serving

1. Crack 2 eggs into square ziploc/glad container
2. Add cheese/other toppings and stir in
3. Place lid loosely on container, place container in microwave for 2-3 mins
4. Put bread in toaster, 2 slices
5.When microwave is done hold the container up and check the bottom. If the center is still runny cook for another minute.
6. Once eggs are done put lid on firmly, whack container on the counter.
7. Butter toast, upend eggs onto toast, put on second slice.

VOILA!

Lol, great college breakfast. I vividly remember eating these approx twice a day for 4 months. Admittedly that was only 3 years ago.

I still make them on my way out the door to work occasionally. Super easy.

I will have to try the ziploc bag/boiling water idea though...I'm always looking for quick easy recipes.

Man, that's a fabulous idea! I'll have to try that sometime really soon.

Re: Make a Ziplock Omelet!

Husband and I do a variation of LibraryChick's Egg Sandwich method!

We use a small 4" square Corningware dish, lightly covered with saran wrap to prevent spattering. Little bit of butter rubbed on the bottom/sides, crack one egg, lightly stir to break up yolk. Microwave for a minute or so. Toast in toaster. Egg will come out of the mircrowave first, peel back saran swrap and place slice of cheese on top, pull wrap back over to hold in heat. Butter toast, slice egg/cheese out of dish and lightly salt/pepper.
Yum!

The Corningware dish is perfect "bread size", but I like her idea of the Glad container, because THAT is bread-shaped, too. What I like about my C'ware is the egg/cheese shape stays within the confines of the bread. (I cannot stand to hold my sandwich and have 'stuff' get my hands/palms wet from 'goop' like jelly, butter, mayo or mustard.
I know I'm a nut.

Re: Make a Ziplock Omelet!

This sounds like a great idea for camping - our son is always doing stuff with his Scout troop, and this sounds like a way to get them out of the dry-cereal-out-eaten-straight-out-of-the-box routine ...

Re: Make a Ziplock Omelet!

I do a slight variation of Heidi's recipe, putting a little rosemary in for extra flavor, plus a few drops of olive oil and a splash of milk to make it fluff up. Butter the toast and put grated extra sharp cheddar on the toast, and toss the hot omelet on top of the cheese to melt it. Let the sandwich sit covered for a minute or two so the hot eggs can melt the the cheese. Bacon is optional on the sandwich.
