Omelet In A Bag Instructions

  • Crack the eggs into a large resealable freezer bag. As you can see in the video, I put the bag in a large cup and fold the zipper portion over the edge of the cup.
  • Press out most of the air, and seal. Squeeze to beat the eggs. Open the bag, and add ham, shredded cheddar cheese and peppers.
  • Squeeze out as much of the air as you can and seal the bag. As you can see in the video I push the egg mixture to the bottom of the bag and then roll the bag around to help hold the shape of the omelet.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Place bag in pot.
  • Cook for 10-15 minutes. If you use three eggs lean more towards 15 minute cook time.
  • Once finished. Pull bag out of the water with tongs.
  • Open the bag, and let the omelet roll out onto a plate. The omelet should roll out easily. If it doesn’t it isn’t done cooking.
  • Top omelet with salsa and sour cream
  • Enjoy!
