I love to entertain overnight guests. However, I have found that preparing omelets for a crowd can be a chore. Especially when the holidays are approaching - more family and friends staying overnight or stopping in for breakfast. This idea works great for those occasions. No one has to wait for their special omelet!

  • 2 large
    eggs for each serving

  • ·
    shredded cheese
  • ·
    chopped ham, bacon, turkey, beef, sausage
  • ·
    chopped onions
  • ·
    chopped green peppers
  • ·
    sauteed sliced mushrooms
  • ·
    chopped tomatoes
  • ·
    chopped spinach
  • ·
    salsa for serving



  1. Have guests write their name on a quart-size
    ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker.
  2. Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag
    (not more than 2) shake to combine them.
  3. Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice
    to their bag and shake, Make sure to get the
    air out of the bag and zip it up.
  4. Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for
    exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook
    6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more, make
    another pot of boiling water. Keep the bag away from the edges of the pot. They're really hot and the plastic will melt. This means you will have to monitor it the whole time, but such is the price to pay. Do not microwave. The soft plastic will melt in the microwave and release toxic fumes onto your food.
  5. Open the bags and the omelet will roll out
    easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.
  6. Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake;
    everyone gets involved in the process and a
    great conversation piece.
