Here is a wonderful and different recipe for making Omelets from my dear friend, Shirley. Excellent idea when having guests or for a quick family breakfast. Imagine all the possibilities for this recipe!
Thank you Shirley for this great idea!
OMELET IN A BAG
1 - Have guests (or family members) write their names on quart-size freezer bags with a permanent marker.
2 - Butter or spray Pam Cooking Spray inside of the bag.
3 - Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag (not more than 2 eggs per bag though) and shake well to combine them.
4 - Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa or whatever else you like in an omelet.
5 - Each guest adds prepared ingredients of their choice to their bag and shake. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.
6 - Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more, make another pot of boiling water.
7 - 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; everyone gets involved in the process and it's a great conversation piece.
P.S. This is also great to make ahead and freeze. When ready to use, just pop a bag in boiling water just until thawed and warm the way you like it - or even nuke it. No frying pan to clean and no dishes to wash. My kind of cooking!
