"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Eggs Cheese
Sausage cooked and crumbled Onions
Bacon cooked and crumbled Green Peppers
Large flour tortilla shells Salt and Pepper
Salsa Sour Cream

Boil a large pot of water. While water is boiling, take a quart
freezer bag (make sure it is a freezer bag so it will take the
heat) and write your name on the front of the bag with a
permanent marker or pen. Crack 1 - 2 eggs inside the bag.
Place the other ingredients as wanted inside the bag also.
DO NOT put the salsa in or the sour cream it will go runny.
Squish the ingredients up inside the bag by squezzing the bag
several times until the egg mixture is well blended. Place the
bag on the table and get all the air out of the bag by sliding
your hand up towards the ziplock top. Seal tightly. Place in
the boiling water. Do not let the plastic bag touch the sides of
the pan or it may melt and cause a wet soggy omelette mess.
Boil for approx. 5 minutes. Test by smashing the omelette in
the bag. If runny let cook longer, if firm it is done. Take a flour
tortilla and dump out the omelette onto it and add salsa and
sour cream if you want and fold up and enjoy.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These are great for camping and at home. They make a
large omelette and the best part is you throw away the bag
and no pans to wash. You can cook up the bacon and
sausage before hand and have it all ready. Make sure you do
not add milk or tomatoes as it goes runny and watery.
