Omelletes made Easy!!!

I got this recipe a while ago and I honestly can not remember where from. I know it was from one of the ladies at one of the Message Boards I go to.

When I first got the recipe I thought, there's NO WAY, it will work. I tried it and I'm in complete shock. Go ahead and give it a try and then let me know ok?


This is a good way to fix breakfast if you're having a lot of family members in (or friends) It works great! Good for when all are together and no one has to wait for their special omelet to be fixed after another.

Have everyone write their name on a quart-size, zip-lock freezer bag with permanent marker.

Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into each bag (not more than 2 eggs) and shake to combine them.

Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc.

Each member adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shakes; make sure the air is out of the bag and the bag is well-zipped.

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.

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 cheerful conversation-starter for the morning.


  1. What an incredible idea, particularly for week-ends or when you have house guests. Can't wait to try this!

  2. anonymous - they are SOOOO easy to make and they always turn out perfect, fluffy and really tasty. Let me know if you try this one, and thanks for dropping by my blog :)

  3. I love your blog. Love your recipe ideas. Love your whole planned menu. Thank you soo much for sharing this with us!

  4. I had seen these before (online), and had forgotten about them. I will have to try them out sometime!

  5. I saw these being made yesterday on Paula Dean's home cooking show topic was Egg Breakfasts. It looked like fun.

  6. I am going to give this a try for sure! Thanx!

  7. I tried this with only 2 small sandwich bags, and melted the bags to the pot. Any idea what went wrong? -Inexperienced Dad

  8. jgestl - I am not sure why they melted to the pot, did you have half of the pot filled with water?
    It's never happened to me before to have the bags stick. They should have plenty of room to float in the water.

    Let me know!

  9. We always make these when we go camping! =)

  10. I am wondering if gallon sized bags will work. That is all we have in the house this morning.

  11. SUPER EASY AND AWESOME!!! I wasn't sure about the bags and thought they would melt, but it was fast and easy--I had wanted to try this since I read it several months ago and today was the day, but couldn't remember all the steps, so my mom and I just tried it and hoped it worked!! thanks so much for sharing this!!!
