The Classic: "Omelet-In-A-Bag"

I'm sure many of you seasoned campers have had this classic breakfast, but thought I would post the recipe for those that have yet to experience this easy to prepare and make omelet.

Things you will need for "Omelet in a Bag":

* Large pot for boiling water.
* Tongs & pair of scissors.
* Box of Ziploc quart size freezer bags.
* Black Sharpie.
* Eggs (2 per person).
* Buffet ingredients (see below).

Prepare the following in advance in individual Ziploc bags for the buffet:

* Chopped onions.
* Grated cheese.
* Chopped ham.
* Sliced mushrooms.
* Chopped green pepper.
* Anything else you like in your omelet.

The process:

* Bring a large pot of water to boil, if you have a large group get to pots going.
* While the water is coming to boil, with the sharpie have each person write their name on an empty Ziploc bag.
* Have someone crack two eggs into each person's bag, then each person can add a couple tablespoons from the buffet ingredient bags of their choice.
* Close the individual bags and with two hands "squash" the contents until well blended, now open the bag slightly and push out the air (burping the bag), then reseal tightly.
* Place all the bags into the boiling water for 13 minutes, remove the bags with tongs, cut open bags with scissors and serve as named.

Tips:

* Avoid having the bags lay against the inside of the pot.
* Pot should be large enough so boiling water can get around all bags.
* Make up the "fixings" at home and keep refrigerated.

A classic indeed, and one that is learned in Boy Scouts. One common mistake made by newbies is to melt the bags.

Add the cheese after the egg has cooked just before you eat it. It is much better that way.

Wow, neat idea. Sounds fun! Especially the squishing part. My grandkids will love it! Well, maybe Papa and me too

Wrap a tortilla around it and make breakfast burritos.

Last summer we fed 50 people in under a half hour on our river lot. We had 3 pots cooking at once.

Jeff Cook (of Alabama fame) told us he was doing parties and using the baggie omlette until he got very sick and went to the doctor. Doc said he carcenigens (sp?) in his system and couldn't figure out how he got them....until he found out about the baggies. Boiling the plastic released a poison into the food!

Y'all be careful!!

I believe the possibly of plastic chemicals being exposed to the food is possible if the bag started melting (ie, touching the pot). Water boils at 212 degrees, and the plastic bag could start to melt above 300 degrees.

Your point is well taken..., and we should be careful with plastic in general when used in any type of cooking where heat is introduced.
