• Omelette In A Bag

    OMLETTE I love a good omelette, and I make a good omelette, but mine aren’t pretty, and they do make a BIG mess. I few weeks ago it dawned on me that a friend once told me about making an omelette in a bag and that I had never tried it. This morning was finally the perfect time for me to see if the idea really worked.

    I used all twos for my measurements.  Well, as much as I measured, and I only measured because I was sharing with you! Obviously, I would normally just use whatever amounts I wanted. I would also normally use bacon in it, but I didn’t want the mess this morning.


    2 eggs
    2 Tablespoons Grated Cheese
    2 Tablespoons Black Olives
    2 Tablespoons Green Onion tops
    2 Very Small Tomatoes
    2 Large Mushrooms, sliced (I used fresh.)
    1 small Ziploc Freezer Bag


    1. I actually stirred everything in a bowl, but my friend doesn’t even do that. She just puts it all straight into the bag and uses her hands to mash the bag, thus mixing.

    2. Mash all the air out of the bag and seal.

    3. Drop in a pan of boiling water.

    4. Boil for 5 minutes, and then begin checking. I like mine completely done!

    5. Your omelette is ready!*

    This recipe is great for making individual meals for one or twenty because you can cook in shifts as people are ready to eat, and no one gets a cold breakfast!


    *This is going to be very hot. Be careful both removing from water and opening the bag. This was a new recipe for me today. Is it as good as my omlette I normally make? Maybe not because I use a LOT of butter in my pan. However, there is absolutely no mess involved here, and my house doesn’t smell like omlette the rest of the day. AND, this one really is very good. If you, like us, like a buttery omlette, just smear this one with butter while it is hot! :)
