quart size freezer bag
permanent marker
2 eggs per person
whatever ingredients you like in your omelet
(cheese,ham,olives etc. )
large pot of boiling water


Have you ever heard of this? (This works great! Good for when all your family is together and no one has to wait for their special omelet)

Have guests write their name on a
quart-size freezer bag with permanent marker.

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

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

Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice
to their bag and shake, Make sure to get the
air out of the bag and zip it up.

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 a
great conversation piece.
