Ziploc Omelet Printable Version of this Recipe


This works great when you have a group of people together.  No one has to wait for their omelet.  Everyone gets involved in the process and it's a great conversation piece.  Easy make-ahead recipe. 

Have guests write their name on a quart size Ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker. 

Crack no more than 2 eggs (large or x-large) into the bag and shake to combine.  Put out a variety of ingredients such as cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc.  Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag.  Shake, carefully press air out of bag and zip it up.

Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes.  You can cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot.  For more bags, make another pot of boiling water or cook in shifts. 

Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily.  Be prepared for everyone to be amazed. 

Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake.
