I use to prepare omelets in one of those omelet pans, but not anymore! Preparing them in those quart-size Ziploc freezer bags, is so much easier, a lot quicker, and hearty enough for 1-serving.

How to Make Ziploc Bag Omelet

Step-by-Step

  • 1Fill a large saucepan (half-way) with water, then bring water to a rolling boil. (I used a 3-quart saucepan.)
  • 2While waiting for the water to come to a boil, crack the 2 eggs into the quart size Ziploc Freezer Bag.
  • 3Seal the bag, and mush the eggs by squeezing the bag.
  • 4Open the bag, add the black pepper, then add the bacon, onion, green peppers, and the cheese. Mush the ingredients together.
  • 5Squeeze out as much of the air as you can, then seal the bag.
  • 6Place the bag into the pan of boiling water, and boil exactly for 14 minutes. (After 7 minutes of cooking, I turn the baggie over. I do this using a pair of tongs.)
  • 7Use tongs to remove the Ziploc bag from the boiling water, and place the bag onto a plate.
  • 8Unzip the bag, or use a pair of scissors, and carefully cut off the top of the bag.
  • 9Hold the two bottom corners of the baggie up over the plate, and let the omelet slide out onto the plate. Season the omelet with a bit of the salt, if desired.
  • 10*Note: You can substitute McCormick's Hot Shots! Black & Red Pepper Blend, or Lawry's Seasoned Pepper, for the black pepper.
  • 11*Additional note: You can use a variety of ingredients to make the omelets, such as: Canadian bacon, chopped ham or chopped pepperoni, other cheeses, also diced red, yellow, or orange bell peppers. Also, you can prepare 2 Ziploc Bag Omelets at the same time, but... by boiling them in a larger pot. (I used a 5-quart Dutch Oven.) Just be sure the pot you are using, is able to cook both baggies together, side-by-side.
