  • 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)


  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 1/2 cup ham
  • 1/4 cup bell pepper
  • 1 cup cheese
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tbsp Milk optional (Adding a dash of milk makes your eggs a bit fluffier.)


  • Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil.
  • Meanwhile, cut and prepare the fillings you’d like in your omelet.
  • Break two eggs into a baggie, then add the fillings of your choice.
  • Seal the bag with as little air as possible and mix the ingredients together by gently kneading or shaking the bag.
  • 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.)
  • Remove the bag from the water with the tongs.
  • Grab a fork and eat right out of the bag, or serve on a plate and enjoy!
