Omelets are a very hard thing to make when there’s multiple people because everyone likes different things in them and it’s hard to cook and serve all at the same time. Bag omelets are one of our favourite things to make for breakfast when we’re camping; but they’re also amazing any day of the week at home when you have multiple guests. It’s as simple as it sounds, an omelet in a bag. These are perfect for making multiple omelets with different toppings all at the same time. Here’s what you do:
Have your ingredients ready.
You can do this in advance or do them on the spot. You can do any colour pepper, mushrooms, cheese, bacon, ham, anything and everything you like in an omelet.
Start boiling your water.
Get a big enough pot to boil water in. Make sure it’s big enough to fit however many bags you are making.
Have your bags ready.
Make sure you use the original Ziploc bags, the cheap ones will burst open. You want the ones with the double seal, also have a permanent marker (preferably) or a pen to write everyone’s name on the bags. This is how you know which one is which. If you don’t have a pen handy you can also cut out notches at the top to identify them.
Form an assembly line.
Get everyone to start putting their toppings in the bags. Once everyone is ready start cracking the eggs in the bag (yup really!).
Seal them and mush everything in side so the eggs break. Once they are all mixed, squeeze ALL the air out and reseal. Squeezing the air out is very important, otherwise they will float and cook unevenly.
Drop the bags in the boiling water. If you are having more than two eggs you’ll have to time that accordingly. For example, three eggs and up should go in first then the two egg ones. If you sealed the bags properly they shouldn’t leak. Important: Make sure all of the bags are inside the pot and not in contact with the pot itself. If they’re touching the pot there’s a chance they could melt.
2 eggs should take about 15 mins to cook. You can usually tell if you squeeze them a little. You can also take a bag out and cut the middle to check. If they’re not cooked you can just reseal and leave them in a bit longer.
Once they are done they look something like a burrito. Nice and neat. You can even slice them and eat them as a sandwich.
Super easy! Enjoy.
