Ziplock Omelets

If you read yesterday's post, we just got back from camping and this is one of the breakfast items we made while we were gone.

Ziploc Omelets

Supplies/Ingredients ~

Quart sized FREEZER bags
Boiling Water
Permanent marker

Eggs (2 per bag)
Omelet Fixings: ham, cheese, peppers (we used green), onion, mushrooms, etc.
Frozen shredded hash browns ~ optional, but these just give the omelet a little extra bulk 

1.  Get your pot of water cooking and bring it to a boil.

2.  Write the name of the omelet maker in permanent marker on the bag.


3.  Crack 2 eggs into each bag and squish them up.


4.  Add in as much or as little of each fixin' as you want.



5.   Gently squish to mix it all together.


6.  Get all of the air out of the bag and seal it tightly.

7.  When your water is boiling, put your egg bags in ~ bring back to a boil ~ and cook for 13 minutes.  If you cook them any longer they will explode..... HA, just seeing if you are really reading.  Not sure what happens after 13 minutes, I am a rule follower and would NEVER over cook my eggs.  Umm.... I think my timer went off about 2 minutes ago while I was busy typing.........

8.  Roll the eggs out of the bag onto a plate, top with salsa if you so desire and ENJOY!



EASY PEASY BREAKFAST!




*Disclaimer*
AND ~ for those of you concerned about cooking with plastic ~ this is probably not a recipe for you.  However for me ~ we do this once maybe twice a summer.  My philosophy is I probably do things that could potentially harm my body daily and eating one omelet boiled in a Ziploc bag once a year ..... well, lets just say, I'm not really concerned.  But, click here for a websites that talks about the dangers of cooking with baggies and here to link to Ziploc's website.

This is a standard breakfast when we are camping. It is also good when you have a large group, whip up lots in a short amount of time. Dinner fave when camping is walking tacos - have you tried that?

One of the Soul Sisters just got a camper and I've been planning a fun camp party in my head...I guess I should ask her about it eventually! This recipe would be awesome!

Hmmm very interesting way to cook eggs. I prefer to cook mine in the mocrowave, you only have to cook it for maybe 2 minutes even with all the toppings.

Good to know though if I'm out camping or something and don't have a pan.
