Ziploc Omelets

We had these omelets for a family brunch not long ago and they were such a hit! They'd be the perfect breakfast for your next camping trip!
Ziploc Omelets
This works great! It's good for when you're alone or all your family is together, and can be enjoyed over an open fire cookout.
Have your guests write their names on a quart size ziploc FREEZER bag with a permanent marker. Crack 2 eggs into the bag (not more than 2). Mash with your hands

Put out a variety of ingredients such as: ham, prepared bacon, onions, cheeses, tomatoes, hash browns, salsa, etc.

Each guest adds prepared ingredients of their choice to their bag and mix well with your hand. add ingredients

Make sure you get all the air out of the bag and zip it up.

Place the bags into rollling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. (Pan needs to be deep enough so bags are floating, and not touching bottom of pan) You can cook 6 - 8 omelets at once in a large pot. If you are fixing more omelets - make another pot of boiling water.

Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Be prepared for fun and everyone to be amazed. finished omelet
