Updated: I have gotten quite a few comments and questions about the toxins in plastic bags used when making omelettes in a bag. 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. Omelettes in a bag are perfect for camping or if have a group to feed breakfast to at home to make individualized requests for eggs, quickly.
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.
Omelettes in a Bag Ingredients
The ingredients for the omelettes in a bag are just like the ingredients for standard omelets. You will need these things to make the omelettes:
Start by breaking two eggs into a FREEZER ziploc bag. Add the ingredients of your choice just like a traditional omelette.
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.
