How to Make Omelettes in a Bag

I’ve seen some creative cooking before, but nothing that involved a plastic bag. If there’s one upside to this recipe, it’s that there’s no dirty pan to clean! More eating, less cleaning-that makes me a fan.


2 eggs (Or more if you have a large appetite!)
2 slices ham, chopped
1/2 C.  cheese, shredded
1 Tbs. onion, chopped
1 Tbs. green bell pepper, chopped
2 Tbs. tomato, chopped
1 Tbs. salsa, chopped
mushrooms, sliced

*All of these ingredients are optional (well, except the eggs). Obviously you can put whatever toppings you like in it.

1. Crack the eggs into a quart size plastic bag.

2. Press out most of the air and seal.

3. Shake and squeeze to beat the eggs.

4. Add the ham, cheese, onion, green pepper, tomato, salsa, and mushrooms. Squeeze out the air and seal.

5. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

6. Place bags into the boiling water.

7. Cook for about 12 minutes.

8. Remove the omelette from the bag and serve.

    Shame that the use of Ziploc or similar plastic bags has been considered a safety issue for years, even confirmed by the company NOT to use their bags in microwave or boiling water…chemicals will leech from bag into the food.

    Our camper club has done this a number of times and it is awesome. Each person fills their own sides into their baggy and we cook them all in huge pot together. That way no one has the mess of cleaning and everyone is happy.
