1/2 Photos of Camping Made Easy: Boil-In-Bag Omelet
This is the way we have been making omelets for years when we go up north to our little cabin (with no electricity). (Please read step #6 for some options). This is so versatile that everyone can get breakfast their own way. Use whatever your hearts desire in each omelet. I usually set up an "Omelet Bar" (diced, ground or shredded, multiple choice items), and everyone grabs what ever they want. We mark each bag going into the pot with the initials of each person. So much fun. This works great over a campfire (if you have a way to put a pan over it to boil), or you can use your stove-top. My ingredient list is only approx. I never really measure, we just grab and mix. Have fun with this. Our grand-kids love this. (To all the "worry warts" out there about boiling food in plastic, please do not post a review unless you've actually made these). Everyone else, enjoy.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Boil a large stock pot of water.
- 2Mix the eggs & the 1 teaspoon of water in a quart size Zip Lock heavy duty (freezer type) baggie (to scramble) and smoosh it quite a bit.
- 3Add in the desired choice & amount of cheese, pre-cooked meat & veggies to the baggie. Seal (zip) the top (removing as much air as possible) and mix everything by squishing the bag. Be sure to season to your liking (salt, pepper, oregano, chili flakes etc. ) before sealing the baggie.
- 4Place each baggie (zipper side up) into the boiling water, and keep an eye on them. Reposition the baggies if they sit too long against the side of the pot. They usually cook in about 10 minutes to be done, but depending on how many you are cooking and the size of the pot, it may take a little longer or shorter. Just watch them is all you need to do.
- 5Enjoy this fun & fantastic omelet.
- 6Some suggestions: Make them spanish with salsa, cilantro and pre-cooked chorizo. Make them Italian with mozzarella, tomato and pepperoni. Chicken cordon Bleu with pre-cooked chicken, swiss and ham. The possibilities are endless!
