So simple and a great escape from doughnuts while camping in the outdoors. My kids love this recipe because they can cook it themselves and add exactly what they like. I place the optional ingredients in separate small baggies, lined up on the table, so each person can add what they like to their individual omelet.

  • Crack 2 eggs into each of 6 good quality, zip-top sandwich bags. Seal bags and squeeze to beat eggs. Open bags and add ham, Cheddar cheese, bell pepper, tomato, onion, mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Reseal bags 3/4 of the way shut, squeezing out as much air as possible, then seal completely.

  • Write each person's name on their bag using a permanent marker. Set bags gently into the boiling water; cook for 12 to 13 minutes. Remove bags using tongs or a slotted spoon. Open baggies and slide each omelet onto a plate.

I'm giving this five stars on all counts! Never knew you could Ziploc and boil your breakfast - and letting each person make their own concoction and then labeling it for later retrieval? Brilliant! Read More

Simple and simply delicious. Much lighter and fluffier omelette than I've ever been able to make in a pan. Recommend. Read More
