    Camping Omelets in a Bag

    Before leaving home, crack the eggs and put the contents in a zip lock type bag. (enough eggs for a small omelet)
    Do up several bags.

    Chop ham, cheese, onions, sausage, and any other add ins that you like and put them in separate bags.

    When at the camp…… give a bag of eggs to each member, and have THEM add whatever extras they like (from the bags of cheese/ham etc)

    Mark the bags with a magic marker, and place them in a pot of boiling water.

    A few minutes later, remove the bags (each camper is responsible for his own), open the bags and slide the “omelet” onto a plate


    Omelets in a Bag

    Zip-lock bags (for the “freezer style” quart size)
    eggs (2 per bag)
    shredded cheese
    sliced mushrooms
    other favorite omelet ingredients
    metal skewers (ones you use to roast marshmallows)
    clothes pins

    Get a large pot of water to boiling. Combine 2 eggs with any or all ingredients and close up in a zip-lock bag. Use the close pins to clamp bag onto the skewers and then sit bags in boiling water with the skewers resting on each side of the pot. You can put several bags in at once. You need to shake the bags hard every couple of minutes. This makes the eggs constantly “fold over” the cheese, ham etc. After about 5-6 minutes, the omelets simply roll out of the bag, shaped somewhat like a breakfast burrito. The cheese, ham, etc. is neatly rolled up in the omelet. 2 eggs per bag makes a large omelet.
    Clean up is easy. Simply throw the zip-locks away and pour out the water.


    this is a response to an inquiry to the Zip-loc company regarding the viability of their bags for immersion in boiling water…………
