This is great recipe that I have used when we are on vacation or camping! It is so easy to do! Just chop or slice your meat and veggies the day before to make the morning preparation a snap. Our kids absolutely loved this. Creating their very own omelet in the ziploc baggie was so fun!

This terrific technique is a real winner and has been used my clever campers for years. I sure had never tried it before seeing this recipe, though, and now I want to throw an omelet party! Everyone can prepare their own creation, and each omelet will finish cooking at the same time so you can all enjoy breakfast together! Love it. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Ziploc Baggie Omelets

Step-by-Step

  1. Write your name with a permanent marker on your quart freezer Ziploc bag. Start a pot or dutch oven of boiling water on your stove or campfire.
  2. Crack two eggs into your baggie. Close up. Mix and mash your eggs until blended well.
  3. Now add your own special ingredient (cheese, meat, veggies, sauce, salsa, etc.) to your omelet mix.
  4. Close baggie again and mix very well. Holding bag upright, squeeze all air out of the baggie making sure to seal completely.
  5. Place bags upright in the pot or dutch oven of boiling water for 13 minutes exactly. Remember to time it. You can usually fit up to 8 omelets in one pot.
  6. Do not cover the pot. Use tongs to keep bags upright and side by side. When 13 minutes is up, carefully remove steaming bags to a heat safe dish.
  7. Carefully cut the tops off of the bags and with an oven mitt, hold the bottom corners so that the omelet will "slide" right out of the bag and onto your plate!
  8. Finally add any salt, pepper, condiments, sauces, etc. to the top of your omelet and enjoy! Remember to be careful when eating because this will be hot!
