Omelette in a Bag Recipe Will Change the Way You Make Breakfast

When a recipe for an omelette 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. 

Get creative with your spices! Try garlic powderonion powderdried oreganodried dillred pepper flakeseverything bagel seasoning or Mrs. Dash. 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. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 13 to 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 to 17 minutes
Servings: 1


Here's how to make it:

  1. Crack 2 to 3 eggs into a storage bag.
  2. Add your desired mix-ins and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Squish around in the bag to combine.
  4. Bring water to a boil in a  large pot. Add the zipper bag to the boiling water and cook about 13 to 15 minutes, or until the eggs reach desired doneness. (The more ingredients you had, the longer it will take.) 
  5. Cut open the bag and slide it onto a plate. Garnish as desired.

How creative and fun, Donna John ! Love this idea for kids and friends, too. Smart and yum!
I added turkey, 1/2 red pepper, cheese and mixed it up with motion nature blend. Mashed it in the bag and boiled it for 14 minutes. It came out watery which I do I have to agree, I may have added more and my baggie was melting some. Could have had it on a higher heat.

I didn't have an issue with the bag melting. It probably need a little more time because you added more ingredients. Thanks for letting me know. I've made notes in the recipe above.

How interesting! Although I personally love making omelets the old-fashioned way, although they usually look pretty messy!! How do you keep the boiling water from melting the bag?
Donna John
My herbs are going nuts in the yard. Think I'll make one of these with my fresh basil, thyme, oregano, dill and rosemary.

We have taken these camping! They have to be Freezer bags. They were a great hit and an easy clean up!
Not smart, great way to eat even more microplastics.
