Omelets in a Baggy

My mother-in-law went camping a few weeks ago with her youngest son and his wife.  When she returned she told me we had to make omelets in a bag for breakfast while on vacation.  So we did!

It is pretty simple and everyone liked them.  First, you need to write your name on a quart size ziploc bag.  (That is important or you won't know whose bag is whose.)  Second, you crack an egg or two and pour the egg into your bag.  Squeeze the eggs in the bag so that they are "scrambled."  Third, add to your bag whatever you want in your omelet.  We had diced onions, diced green peppers, cheddar cheese, sausage, and bacon to add to ours.  (Mom and I browned all of our sausage and cooked our bacon before we went on vacation so everything was ready to go for our omelets.)  Once you have added all of your omelet ingredients...oh...you will want to add salt and pepper too, we forgot and had to do it afterwards....then squeeze out all of the air and seal the bags.  Finally, place your bag in boiling water and leave it there for 13 minutes.

 We placed all seven of our bags in a big pot of water.  At the end of the time, open your bag and a perfectly rolled up omelet glides out onto your plate.

  Add some salsa or tabasco sauce for a delicious breakfast.
