OMELETS IN A BAGGIE
My sister-in-law emailed this to me and I thought, "Hot Diggity Dog! May I say, easy!!" I tried it this morning and it was a really yummy, fluffy omelet! Wish I had known this one when I was cooking for lots of picky girls up at summer camp . . . way easy way to satisfy everyone.
Have everyone write their name on a quart-size Ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker. ( I have since discovered that you can use a sandwich bag and it works just fine!)
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 [we did 15 minutes]. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more, make another pot of boiling water. (I put mine in before the water was actually boiling. Lifted it out a couple of times to squish ingredients around. Mine was done in about five minutes.)
Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed. (I dumped mine out and rinsed the bag immediately. It looks very clean, but will keepin the fridge door for future use . . . I know cheapskate)
Straight from the pot. My omelet. Everything is better with salsa!!
For over fifty years, I have seemed to spend a lot of my time in the kitchen. First, it was the usual “helping Mommy” whether it was everyday meals or canning. Mom wasn’t really into cooking, so I had to create my own kitchen adventures. As the years went by, I enjoyed it more and more. Fortunately, my family have been pretty good sports about my experiments!
Canning fruit in Utah led to huge gardens as a wife and mother, canning meat when it was too good of a price to pass up . . . Oops! No freezer . . . DUH! Finding that these activities have blessed my family repeatedly led me to this point.
Life experiences, working in a church cannery for three years and serving as cannery specialist two times have brought me to the point of sharing what I have learned. The most important lesson being, keep an open mind and always be ready to learn from others. Be sure to check out the links I have in the side bar of the blog!!!
