Potatoes (cooked and diced)
Cheese (grated)
Any other ingredient you might like in an omelet

Pour 1/2 C (2 eggs) beaten eggs or 1/2 Cup egg substitute into a zip lock "freezer" bag.
Add finely chopped ham, cooked and crumbled sausage, chopped peppers, chopped onion, shredded cheese - as each person wishes.

Use a permanent marker (such as a Sharpie) to write your name on the bag BEFORE filling. The name needs to stay on the bag (not wash off) if several bags are cooked at once.
Seal the bag well, making sure to press out all the air, squeeze gently to mix all ingredients, hold bag upright so all ingredients are in the bottom of the bag, and drop into a pot of boiling water. Do not fill bag more than 1/3 full or it may open and leak during cooking. Cook for about 15 minutes - open bag carefully and roll omlette onto a plate. Add salt and pepper to taste. Top with salsa if desired.

Personal Notes:
Fun to make and good to eat! Good for a a crowd. I use a blender to mix the eggs - quick and easy. We did these outdoors on a propane cooker and a LARGE pot of hot water for about 40 people.
