Omelet in a Bag

I love omelets...but I just can't get them right at home. So, when I saw this concept from Paula Deen/Food Network, I was so intrigued...and, admittedly, a little skeptical. Boiling omelets in baggies? Hmmm...but with Paula's stamp of approval?

Even though it was just the two of us, these would be absolutely perfect for a crowd...everyone picks their own combination and it's all ready at the same time, keeping you from being a short-order omelet cook.

There's no real "recipe," which is the beauty of it. Totally customizable to individual tastes.

Just break two or three eggs per person in separate bowls and beat with fork. Season with salt and pepper. Add in ingredients of your choice to each bowl and stir to combine. I put diced ham, chopped mushrooms, and shredded Cheddar cheese in mine. My BF added a few other things to his, like onions and peppers.

Pour each bowl into separate baggies. I initialed them with a Sharpie. Drop into a pot of boiling water and cook for 10 minutes (the original recipe said 5-8 minutes, but I wanted eggs to be thoroughly cooked and firm.) Remove with tongs and let rest for a few minutes on a paper towel-lined plate. Then, just open and slide out onto plate. That's it! Perfection!

Let me show you...

  1. a) it took me like 1,000 minutes to figure out how to leave a dang comment. And b) you didnt tell me how it TASTES in relation to a regularly cooked one?!?!
