If you have never done this, you need to! Omelets In A Bag are a great camping idea or perfect for busy mornings or when you are having breakfast for dinner. With 7 people in my family making omelets one by one is time consuming, so we love to do this at home because you can make several at the same time but it is ideal for camp outs because there really aren't any dirty dishes to deal with!
Another benefit of omelets is that everyone can make their own based on their own tastes. You'll need 2 eggs per person and omelet add-ins. Some of our favorites are ham, sausage, cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms, bell pepper, onion, salsa and spinach.
First, write your name on a pint size FREEZER bag. Crack two eggs into the bag. Press out as much air as possible and seal the bag. With your hands, squish and squeeze the eggs until they are completed mixed together.
Next, add in around 1/4 cup of your favorite cheese, 1/2 cup of add-ins and salt and pepper to taste. Squeeze as much air out of the bag as possible and seal the bag. (Tip – If you are going camping, be sure to chop all of your add-ins at home for a super easy breakfast in the outdoors.)
Place bags into a large pot of boiling water for 14 minutes. (I have cooked as many as 5 in my largest pot but you can cook more if you have a larger pot.) I do tend to move the bags around a time or two during cooking to make sure they are all getting cooked evenly. (If you want a 3 egg omelet, you will need to cook it 20-21 minutes and if you don't add any meat or veggies it will take around 7-9 minutes.) Your cook times may vary depending on the size of eggs, size of pot, number cooked at once etc.
Here is the final product – An Omelet in a Bag! It cooks into a rectangle shape in the bottom of the bag. So yummy and such an easy breakfast or dinner!
