Omelet in a Bag


Do you love to cook omelets or do a lot of camping? If so, this recipe is for you! Omelets cooked in zip lock plastic bag… It really works and is simple to prepare when family and friends get together for breakfast.


  • 2 large eggs per person
  • Any variety of ingredients


Step 1

Have each guest write their name on a quart-size ziplock freezer bag with a permanent marker. Prepare the ingredients of your choice: cheese, ham, onions, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, parsley or cilantro, mushrooms, shallots, jalapeños, sausage, bacon, pepperoni.

Step 2

Crack 2 eggs into the bag with the ingredients and shake to combine them. Have each guest add the ingredients of their choice to their bag and shake.

Step 3

Add salt and pepper to taste. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.

Step 4

Place the bag into boiling water. Boil for exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily.

*The Friendly Little Recipe Club provided these tips: If you overcook it, it will be rubbery. Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the omelet, the altitude, and the size of the pan. The omelet will continue to cook in the bag once it is removed from the water so remove the bag when the center of the omelet is not quite firm. Remove the omelet from the bag and serve. Pointers: The steam in the plastic bag will make it balloon and look like it may burst. In our experience, it won't. With a little coaxing, the bag will lie flat in the water as it heats. You will not need to turn the bag over. Make sure that you keep the omelet mix cold. Without being in their protective shells, eggs will not keep as long. When you cook the eggs, they should get hot enough to kill bacteria-but be on the safe side and keep your eggs cold anyway.
