Ziploc Omelets--A Unique Concept

You've heard of make-your-own pizza parties. Well, how about a make-your-own omelet Easter Brunch? How unique and fun is that? Here's what you do::

Buy quart-size ziploc bags--the freezer style, as they are stronger.
Break two large eggs into each bag and gently mash to break up the eggs. 
Add your choice of ingredients such as:
  • Tomato
  • Grated cheese
  • Scallions
  • Mushrooms
  • Cooked ham, bacon or sausage
  • Peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Artichokes

Mix up all the ingredients; then squeeze all the air out of the baggie.
Seal tightly and completely! Double check it!

Place bags in a big pot of boiling water (about six bags per pot).
Let them cook for 13 minutes, stirring a couple of times.

Carefully take the bags out of the boiling water and place each omelet on a plate. Add taco sauce, pepper, or other garnishes.

NOTE: Since I was making only one, my cooking time was about two minutes less. I found it was not done, though, until it was one solid-looking piece. I suggest if you use tomatoes, drain them well or take out the seeds as there was a little wetness on the plate from them.


ANOTHER NOTE: Use a permanent marker to write each person's name on the bag before adding ingredients. Otherwise, you won't know which omelet each made!

You can experiment with the cooking time if you want them harder or softer.
