2 eggs

1 Tbsp. water

Additional ingredients

cheese, shredded

ham, diced

bacon, cooked & chopped

sausage, cooked & crumbled

tomato, diced

bell peppers, diced

onion, chopped

mushroom, sliced

(whatever other toppings you like)

Optional Toppings:

Salt & pepper

Sour cream




(any additional topping ingredients you like)


Bring a large pot of water to a boil (appx. 2/3 full)

While waiting for the water to boil, crack eggs into a Ziploc heavy-duty, large (at least quart-sized.. preferably gallon-size) freezer bag and add water.

Seal and shake the bag to get those eggs really beaten up.

Add any remaining ingredients that you would like, press as much air out of the bag as you can and seal tightly.Shake the ingredients around a little bit to get an even distribution.

Place bags (up to 6) in the boiling water and cook for 13 minutes (adding 1-2 minutes per additional egg if people want bigger omelettes). ALSO, cooking times vary depending on elevation-- check your eggs every few minutes... once they are no longer runny and feel like they are set, they are ready!

Make sure the tops of the bag don't hang out over the edge of the pot, especially if you are doing it over a fire-- you don't want the plastic to melt (if camping).

Carefully remove the bags from the water. When you open the bag, the omelette should easily slide onto the plate. Top with any additional toppings and enjoy!
