Omelette in a Bag

Saw this recipe on the Food Network yesterday, thought I'd try it today. Trouble is, only Sam wanted eggs.

It is a boiling bag omelette. Just put eggs and any other ingredients you want into a Food Saver bag. Sam had ham and cheese. Seal and simmer in water for eight to nine minutes. Et Voila!

Hints and tips: Some say you can try it with Ziploc freezer bags, others online are worried about the plastic melting--you choose.  Some people commenting online said they had trouble holding the bag down in the water. The suggestion was using a heavy spoon to hold it down. With the Food Saver bag, though, it was not too light. Others suggested getting the air out of the bags before cooking. Still others suggested simmering instead of boiling for the plastic leaching scares. One more tip is to write each person's name on their bag once they add their own ingredients. On the television show she had an electric frying pan so that it was a nice and big surface for multiple omelettes cooking at the same time. Also, chopping the ingredients the night before is a good idea to save time in the mornings.

Bon Appetit!

  1. Love that idea. Need food saver bags. Not afraid of plastic in my body, so I might try the freezer bags and let you know...
