Updated: I have gotten quite a few comments and questions about the toxins in plastic bags. These freezer bags from Glad are BPA free.
Some of you may have heard about this very novel idea of making omelettes in a freezer ziploc bag. Have you? Well, I had not seen omelettes in a bag done, but after seeing it done last weekend, I am sold on the idea. Who needs a dirty pan when you can just throw baggies away!! Plus no waiting your turn for the pan. You can cook a whole bunch of omelettes at one time in a pan of boiling water.
Start by breaking two eggs into a FREEZER ziploc bag. Add the ingredients of your choice just like a traditional omelette.
Then, zip the bag close and moosh it up with your hands. You know scramble it!
Make sure you have written the name of each person’s omelette on the bag.
Then place the omelettes in a bag in boiling water for about 14-15 minutes. The rule of thumb is about six and half to seven minutes per egg. So if you decide you want a three egger, you will need to cook it for more like 20 minutes. However, you can cook as many as you can fit in a pan at a time.
Then just walk a way and wait.
Grab your favorite mug for coffee and rest.
Then, when the eggs in the omelettes in a bag are set up and done cooking, Just dump them onto plates.
