A Great time saver in the morning!

Recommended Posts

With camping season now in full swing, lots of company coming and going with summer, here is a great idea that I received in my e-mail today from a friend. It was new to me, so I figured that it may be new to you as well....Here it is


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.

Ask each guest to add their preferred ingredients of choice to their bag & shake.

Make sure to get the air out of the bag, then zip it up.

Place the bags into rolling, boiling water

for exactly 13 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.

Imagine having these ready the night before,

and just putting the bag in boiling water while you get dressed.

In 15 minutes, you've got a nice omelet for a quick breakfast!!!

Ha! :P One of my girl scout camping memories... let me share... it's cute. We were all small kids, maybe 1st or 2nd grade? and it was our first "real" campout event (tent in backyard) and our parents were instructed to put everything in tin foil to make the cooking of the meal much easier. After our dinner was cooked on the grill, one of the girls in the troup opened up her tin foil package to find a nicely cooked tube of toothpaste! We all got a real good laugh out of that one... I still remember that from way back in 1969...:D

Good morning PattyJo ..... I sent this idea to my daughter in Calif. who entertaines all the time. Lots of sleep-overs and pancakes in the morning. She tried this idea last night for dinner to try it out and just loves it. Today, she is taking all the fixins to her MIL's house as she just had major surgery and has a house full of family staying there and at my daughters house.

This is also a great idea for camping. No cooking dishes but when you get done eating, you already have the hot water to wash the cups and silverware. :P:P

I hate to put a damper on this, but I worry about one thing in this recipe: Is that plastic zip loc OK for cooking in -- without contaminating the food with carcinigens?

We hear warnings about plastic bottles getting hot or cold and putting toxins in the water......what about zip loc bags?????

I don't know the answer, but the danger came to mind.
