Intro: How to Make an Omelet in a Ziplock Bag
Making omelets can be very difficult and messy. However, by using a plastic bag and some boiling water, the process is simplified greatly. This can be used indoors and while on camping trips. It's a fun, easy way to make breakfast without a hassle.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
You will need:
-2 or 3 eggs
-a plastic bag with a very good seal
-a medium pot
-enough water to fill the pot about halfway
-a large spoon
You should also get other spices, cheeses, and toppings as desired.
Step 2: Mix Your Ingredients
Start heating your water now, as it needs to be at a rolling boil to cook your food.
Crack the eggs directly into the bag and shake or whisk well. (Thanks again to l8nite for pointing out that the bowl is unnecessary!) Add desired spices and mix again.
Pour mixture into the bag. Make absolutely sure that you have removed all air from the bag!
Step 3: Cook Your Omelet
Put the bags directly into the boiling water. Let them sit for at least 13 minutes to become fully cooked. Believe me, you don't want food poisoning for 3 days because you were too impatient to wait 13 minutes.
Step 4: Remove and Ingest!
Carefully take the bag out of the water. You can be thrifty and reuse the bag, or just rip it open and "pour" it onto the plate. Ready for eating!
This set of instructions can easily be adapted for camping purposes. Just make sure that you have some way to keep the eggs cool, so you don't get salmonella.
