Ziploc Omlet

I found this handy dandy tip for a crowd at breakfast time in my email box this morning from a friend who said her mom sent it to her. Thanks so much for sharing Jody!

(This works great !!! Good for when all your family is together. The best part is that no one has to wait for their special omelet !!!)
Have guests write their name on a quart-size Ziploc 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 [we did 15 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...

But isn't the boiling water to hot for a plastic bag?
& doesn't the name wash off?

Curiosity killed the cat..good thing I'm not one.!

hugs and God Bless

Could be, I haven't tried it. I had a problem with cooking my eggs in plastic. I just thought that for a crowd, someone might want the conveinience of it.

I've done these many times for my family. It works well, but you have to make sure you get all of the air out of the bag.
