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 shakes. 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. 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 putting the bags in boiling water while your guests are arising. In 13 minutes, you get a nice omelet for a quick breakfast. I think my kids are going to like this. I used tomatoes, ham, green onions, cheddar cheese and mushrooms in the one pictured below.
The cook is ready to cut the bag, right through the Z, and dump out the omelet.
This recipe came to me from relative Cathy Day.
