Do you ever want to make omelets for a crowd of folks, but hate the idea of only making one or two at a time? We made six at one time over the weekend for a birthday brunch...they were perfect!

serves 6
prep time 15 Min
cook time 25 Min


  •   12
    eggs, beaten
  •   16 oz
    sausage, cooked, drained
  •   1 1/2 c
    grated cheese
  •   1/2
    large onion, diced
  •   1/2
    green bell pepper, diced
  •   7
    mushrooms, cleaned, diced
  •   6
    quart size freezer bags

How To Make

  • 1
    Have ready on the stove top, one or two large pans of boiling water. The omelets will be ladeled into the bags, sealed and boiled until done.
  • 2
    Beat the eggs with a little bit of milk or water (about 1/2 cup for this recipe). Set aside.
  • 3
    In non-stick skillet, saute the vegetables until tender. Set aside. Brown the sausage, set aside.
  • 4
    Each person gets their own quart size storage bag. We used a permanent marker to put the name of each person on the bag. Use Freezer bags only, they are thick and will take the boiling better. Add about 1/2 cup of the egg mixture per bag for a two-egg omelet.
  • 5
    Have your guests choose from the ingredients above and add 1-2 tablespoons of each to their bag along with a little cheese. You can mix and match your ingredients, making a variety for your guests to choose from.
  • 6
    Seal the bag, pressing out all of the air. Drop the bag into boiling water. It takes about 12-15 minutes for the omelet to cook. We did three in each pan of boiling water. Six cooked in this 12-15 minutes.

    Have your plate ready, remove bag from water, avoid steam, open and release onto your plate. Add cheese on top. The result is a moist, tender, fluffy omelet, perfectly cooked! Enjoy!
