How to make it

  • Put pot of water on to boil.
  • Write each parties name on ziplock freezer baggie.
  • Chop or cook any omelet fixins.
  • Break 2-3 eggs into each baggie -I ususally just crimp the bag open and after 1 egg is in it normally will stand somewhat on it's own. Just don't leave it unziped.
  • Sprinkel with salt & pepper, seal bag & squish contents in hands to mix up egg.
  • Open bag & either you add or have each guest add desired fixins.
  • Squish bag around to incorporate ingredients.
  • Squeeze out as much air as possible & seal completely.
  • Drop into boiling water & cook for 12-14 mins depending on desired doneness. You can normally tell if you squeeze omelet how much liquid is left. If you've used wet ingredients it may take a little longer.
  • Removed from boiling water with tongs & pat dry on towel.
  • Immediately open, roll onto the plate and serve. It will roll out I promise -I've made these many times & never had one not come out completely & beautifully.

    I tried this and it really cooked a great omelet! It was so easy, I used a large freezer bag, and because of gravity, I was concerned that the shape would be 8"x 1". While boiling it sort of floats to the top and spreads out. It and was pretty close to a regular "omelet" shape. The only thing I added was shredded cheese and to my amazement it worked and I didn't use any butter or oil. Granted it wasn't all healthy, but if you add something other than cheese or breafast meat, it could be a bit more healthier than frying!

    How cool! This would be great for me. It's just my husband and myself and sometimes I want eggs and he just wants cereal. Or.... I could make up a couple of these ahead of time and take to work to finish in the microwave. Oh yeah, I can see this being a favorite at my house. Thanks for the great idea!

    I can not rave enough about this recipe. We made it again this year for my Ring in the season brunch and it is just so simple and delicious that I had to come reiterate to all how special this recipe is. This year my husband thought to crack the eggs into their individual baggies before the event and this really made it flow much smoother than last year. We just gathered the bags zip end up into a basket and put in the fridge until the morning of the brunch. Again I printed up check lists & wrote each guests name on the baggies with a sharpie. In 13 minutes we all had delicious omelets and no one was left slaving away by the stove. I added smoked cheddar & swiss to my list of ingredients & my guests loved the added smokeyness. We even forgot to salt & pepper the baggies before cooking, but I found allowing each guest to salt their own on their plate actually worked better. Of course I've just discovered Jane's Krazy Mixed-Up Seasonings -Original blend & that really helped the flavors of the omelet bloom. I highly recommend this recipe to anyone who needs to feed a crowd or just those who don't want a lot of clean up after the meal. You just toss the bags & pour out your pot of water -presto -kitchen clean.
