Ziploc Baggie Omelettes

***DISCLAIMER-ZIPLOC SAYS NOT TO DO THIS BECAUSE OF UNKNOWN CHEMICALS RELEASED WHILE BOILING THEIR BAGS. I'M NOT CLAIMING THIS IS SAFE.***

This is from the Ziploc website
"Can I boil in Ziploc® Brand Bags?
No. Ziploc® Brand Bags are not designed to withstand the extreme heat of boiling."

That being said upfront, I make them anyway. Do with this information what you will...




Here's the easy way to make an omelet with no fuss


First, get a pot of water on the stove and boil. You'll want to have it about half way full of water. Then, get your omelet goodies ready to go. We used bacon





Then in a small bowl, scramble up your eggs. Plan for about 3 eggs per baggie.



Pour into one quart size ziploc freezer baggies. Add in other goodies of your choice (sausage, onions, tomatoes, bacon, etc) and a little bit of cheese.



Place in boiling water for 5 minutes.



When it's done, it will slide right out of the bag and on to the plate!





A couple of cautions with this:

Ziploc does NOT recommend doing this!
Make sure you use freezer bags.
Make sure the entire bottom of the bag is INSIDE the pot and make sure the top of the bag doesn't fold over and touch the outside of the pan. IT WILL MELT THE BAG!

I am with you, this is a great idea no matter what Ziploc says. Looks so fun and I am sure the fam would love this. I would love the no mess.

that is a very creative idea. I love a good omelet but sometimes they don't always look so good when I try to flip them over in the pan. Nice idea to try.
