Great recipe for a no-mess, individualized omelet.

Omelets in a Bag

For each omelet:  Crack 2 eggs into a quart-size Ziplock bag.  Shake to combine.  Add other ingredients as desired:  shredded cheese, chopped ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa.  Salt/pepper to taste. 

Each person prepares his/her bag with his/her favorite ingredients.   If you’re making several, you can write the person’s name on the outside of the bag with a permanent marker.

Shake each bag well.  Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.  Place the bags into rapidly boiling water for  exactly 13 minutes.  If it’s a large pot, you can cook 4-6 omelets at a time.

After 13 minutes, remove the bags carefully from the water, open the bags, and the omelets will roll out easily. 

I’ve tried these a couple times, and they’re really good.  Serve with some fresh fruit or pastry – and you’ve got a great breakfast.  It would be rather cool to do this with guests, too.
