Ziplock Omelettes

This is the coolest thing I've seen in a while.

If you have a big family or friends over, this is a great idea.

Put all of your favorite omelet ingredients out on a table, along with Ziplock Freezer bags.

Start by having everyone write their name on the bag in permanent marker

Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.

Put out a variety of ingredients such as cooked bacon or bacon bits, cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc. I like pepperoni and cheese! Plus you can put out different herbs & spices. Dill is a personal favorite and Jane's Crazy salt (Not easy to find).

Adults can put their fav ingredients in their bag and shake. Of course, you let the kids shake theirs but if you don't want raw egg everywhere, you'd better keep an open eye, right?

Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.

Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for approximately/exactly 13 minutes. You should be able to cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. Or get two pots going so everyone can eat together. (How many times, Mom have you had to eat last?)

Open the bags, carefully and the omelet will roll out easily. These are nice to serve with hash browns or maybe even some pancakes made with applesauce, huh?
