No more waiting in line for your favorite omelet. Guests put their favorite ingredients into a ziploc bag, write their names on the bag and......13 minutes to breakfast!!!
[Note -- there is some controversy as to whether or not this is safe to do -- plastic bags may change chemically when boiling. As always, proceed at your own risk.]"We have been doing this for years as we got tired of trying to fold regular omelets nicely without breaking. So far no ill effects. We like to use 3 eggs and boil for 14 minutes.. Also, about 2 minutes before finish time, i gently push the baggie against the side of the pot with the back of a spoon to squeeze out any uncooked egg. It works great. Just don't mistake the yolk for any melted cheese (I've done that). These are easy and really good!" - Mr_D

Ziploc Omelets Preparation
Set out the eggs and a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, salsa, hash browns etc....
Have each person write their name on the outside of a quart size ziploc freezer bag. Crack 2 eggs (large or jumbo) into each bag (no more than 2). Mash and shake well to combine.
Fold the top edge down so the bag will remain open. Have each person add their favorite ingredients into their own bag. Remove all air from the bag and zip it up! Shake well to combine all ingredients.
Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for EXACTLY 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot.
Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Prepare for everyone to be amazed!
Serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake.
These can be prepared in the bags the night before and in the morning it's 13 minutes to breakfast!
