Jimm's notes for this recipe:
My dad love to take us camping, my mother hated it! But, she learned how to make cooking easier on a open fire or camp stove.
Make it Your Way...

The night before, dice up all the ingredents and refrigerate (you can use whatever ingredents your family likes most)
Using a marker, write the name of each person to have breakfast on the upper side of a zip lock baggie.
Break 1 egg (children), 2 egss (adult) into each baggie, then zip close and shake to break up the eggs.
Allow each person (who's name is on the baggie)to add whatever ingredents they would like to have in their omelet. Zip close and refrigerate.
In the morning, once the fire is going, place a pot of water on to boil. Once boiling, add up to eight bags at a time. Boil for 10 minutes. Remove, unzip the baggie and let it slid out of the baggie onto the plate of the person who's name is on the baggie. Throw away the baggie and enjoy your omelet!

Very cool idea, you don't need any butter to it? This sounds like a really good at home idea also, instead of making them one by one :]
and only one pot to rinse out !!!

I have heard of this as my dad was an avid camper and fisherman. We went camping every summer with my cousins and their parents nine of us every year in Sheboygan, Mi. My dad loved coho fishing in the summer and in the winter he would go ice spear fishing.I ramble- thanks for sharing this memory.

One of my husband's customers was telling me about this, she's been doing it for years...So easy to clean up and everyone gets the breakfast they want.

We do this at all our camp trips. There are so many of us we are now using roaster ovens. And we make slow cooker oatmeal too. ( we buy the slow cooker bags so no need to wash sc. And if any left overs we just twist tie the bag and reheat for later or make oatmeal cake in the dutch oven yay!)
