Omelet in a Bag: This Recipe Hack Will Change the Way You Omelet by Donna John
When a recipe for an omelet made in a plastic storage bag and boiled came across my Facebook feed, it had to happen. The omelet may not win a beauty contest, but it tasted great. Red pepper, grated Parmesan and chopped onion were my mix-ins of choice, and the garnish was a sprinkle of dill. Now, why would you want to make omelets in a bag? Here are a few good reasons:
- On a camping trip, make these the night before and all you need to do is boil a pot of water in the morning. You could even make them before you leave and keep them in a cooler.
- If your kid has a slumber party, let the kids prepare their omelets that morning or the night before and write their names on the bags. Throw them all into a large pot of boiling water and you're officially a slumber party pro.
- Have a fun family omelet night. Put out a bunch of fillings and let your family create their own unique omelet. Picky eaters may even give it a try if it's prepared in a fun way.
- omelet mix-ins: shredded cheese, chopped veggies, chopped cooked meat, chopped herbs, etc.
- gallon-size plastic freezer bags
Here's how to make it:
Crack 2-3 eggs into a storage bag.
Add your desired mix-ins and season with salt and pepper.
Squish around in the bag to combine.
Add to boiling water and cook about 13-15 minutes, or until the eggs reach desired doneness. (The more ingredients you had, the longer it will take.)
Cut open the bag and slide it onto a plate. Garnish as desired.
