Omelet in a bag.

On our last outing, we camped with a few friends. So Saturday evening we had a pot luck dinner. Everyone made a covered dish, well it was great. After dinner was over and all cleaned up we're sitting around and someone suggested we all get together for a breakfast of omelets-in-a-bag in the morning. Everyone brought fixings for omelets. We had ham, cheese, onion, tomato, bacon, left over pork chops diced up, leftover veggies. Everyone was given a quart-size freezer ziploc bag to write their names on. We broke two eggs each into the bag and added all our fixings. Mushed up the eggs by squeezing the bag and zipped it up tight. Now, while we were doing all this, water was being boiled in the deep fryer pot. Once everyone was ready, all the bags were dropped in the boiling water at the same time and left there for exactly 12 minutes. WOW. We could not believe what large omelets it all turned into. Cheese melted all throughout and totally delicious. All we had to do was unzip the bag, slide it on a plate, and add topping (salsa, etc) of our choice. Absolutely no cleanup and plenty left over if anyone could actually eat a second one!

Your making me hungry :lizard:. Its been years since I have done this.

One tip, DO NOT let the bags touch the bottom of the pot, if it does it will melt the bag and you get egg soup. I have placced a metal plate on the bottom of the pot to ensure the bag(s) don't touch.

Been enjoying the Omelet-in-the-bag on and off for years as well. I would make up the 'fix-ins' prior to leaving home which made the campsite prep even easier. We also "burped" the bag prior to dropping it into the pot.

We have done the Omlette in a Bag with our truck club. Three pots and right at 50 people. We did it with a small group this weekend with one pot and 7 people. As mentioned, bags don't touch the bottom, get the air out of the bag, and don't let the bag touch the outside of the pot. We beat up the eggs in a bowl and use a dipper to fill the bags. About three eggs per bag, four eggs for really big people.
