Another bonus – you can totally plan ahead when you know you have a busy day coming up by prepping everything ahead of time and storing the ready-made bags in the fridge. Breakfast, lunch and/or dinner just got so much easier!

How To Cook Omelets in a Bag

WARNING: We are not responsible for the extra calories that will be consumed once you realize how easy and yummy these are. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!

INGREDIENTS:

  • Eggs
  • Favorite Fillings (cheese, onion, ham, tomato, bell peppers, mushrooms, salt and pepper, etc.)
  • Milk, optional (Adding a dash of milk makes your eggs a bit fluffier.)

YOU WILL ALSO NEED:

  • Quart-sized freezer bags (1 per person)
  • Large pot full of water
  • Tongs to retrieve the bags from boiling water
  • Sharpie marker (If you are making multiple omelets at a time, you might want to write the names or initials of each person on their bag)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil.
  2. Meanwhile, cut and prepare the fillings you’d like in your omelet.
  3. Break two eggs into a baggie, then add the fillings of your choice.
  4. Seal the bag with as little air as possible and mix the ingredients together by gently kneading or shaking the bag.
  5. Place the bag into the boiling water and let it cook until the eggs are set. (A general rule of thumb is to let each bag cook for about 6 minutes per egg. So for a two-egg omelet you should expect a cook time of around 12 minutes. A three-egg omelet will take 18-20 minutes etc.)
  6. Remove the bag from the water with the tongs.
  7. Grab a fork and eat right out of the bag, or serve on a plate and enjoy!
