Yes, you read that title correctly...in a bag!! The best part about this recipe is that you can have omelets ready for everyone all at the same time, even if you have a large group!
(A mistake I made recently - I tried boiling nine bags together in the same pot and it took way longer than it normally does. I should have divided the bags between 2 pots. It doesn't take long to cook these if there aren't too many in the pot.)
Omelets In A Bag
(these are the ingredients you will need for each omelet)
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons heavy cream
dash of salt
1 tablespoon of cheese
1 tablespoon or so of any other ingredient you like in your omelet- like bacon or onion. (optional)
1 small Ziploc bag (quart size and make sure it's a freezer bag)
When we do this for our group we have everyone take a Sharpie marker and write their name on the outside of the bag first. That way when all of the omelets are cooked we know who gets which one. Everyone likes to make theirs different! I put out a large selection of ingredients to choose from and we really pack our bags full. I usually have chopped onion, crumbled bacon, chopped tomato, cheese, green pepper, sometimes ham, mushrooms, and anything else I have in the fridge or pantry we can use.
Fold out the edges of the Ziploc bag. Crack the eggs right into the bag. Add the cream, cheese, salt and any other ingredients you like. Seal the bag, squish the ingredients to mix. "Burp" the air out.
Bring a medium-sized pan of water to a heavy boil. (I actually use a huge pot because I am cooking several.)
Drop Ziploc bags into the boiling water. Boil for 10 to 12 minutes.
Carefully remove bag from water. Open the bag and roll the omelet onto a plate. YUM!
