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


1Have guests write their name on a quart-size
ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker.
2Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag
(not more than 2) shake to combine them.
3Each 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.
4Place 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.
5Open the bags and the omelet will roll out
easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.
6Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake;
everyone gets involved in the process and a
great conversation piece.
