Recipe of the Month - November 2013


Omelette in a Bag


Adapted from Favorite Family Recipes


Yields: 1 serving



  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil (approx. 2/3 full).
  2. While waiting for the water to boil, crack eggs into a gallon-size, heavy-duty plastic bag. Add the water.
  3. Seal and shake, smash, squish the get the eggs beaten.
  4. Add any remaining ingredients that you would like, press as much air out of the bag as you can and seal tightly. Smoosh ingredients around to get an even distribution.
  5. Place bag in the boiling water and cook for 13 minutes (adding 1-2 minutes per additional egg if you want a bigger omelet). Make sure the top of the bad doesn't hang out over the edge of the pot, so that the plastic won't melt.
  6. Carefully remove the bag from the water. When you open the bag, the omelette should easily slide onto the plate. Top with any additional toppings and enjoy!

**These make a great meal for camping trips!
