omelet in a bag

So sorry, dear reader, I have not posted a prettier picture, but this one conveys what you will do with this quick and easy omelet recipe!  We can thank my sweet hubby for this idea!  He went to a Men’s Breakfast and this is what they served….an omelet cooked in a Ziplock Freezer Bag!!  You will never do it any other way…so glad he reminded me of this!  This is perfect if it is for one or if you want to do a breakfast brunch for  a church group or co-workers on the weekend!  Here we go!


2 eggs                               

2 slices ham, chopped (optional)                               

1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese                               

1 tablespoon chopped onion (optional)                               

1 tablespoon chopped green bell pepper (optional)                               

2 tablespoons chopped fresh tomato (optional)                               

1 tablespoon chunky salsa (optional)                               

2 fresh mushrooms, sliced (optional)


1.  Crack the eggs into a large resealable freezer bag. Press out most of the air, and seal. Shake or squeeze to beat the eggs. Open the bag, and add the ham, cheese, onion, green pepper, tomato, salsa, and mushrooms. Squeeze out as much of the air as you can, and seal the bag. 

2.  Bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Place up to 8 bags at a time into the boiling water. Cook for exactly 13 minutes. Open the bag, and let the omelet roll out onto a plate. The omelet should roll out easily.

 That is it!  You can do any variation you like.  Just throw it in, zip it up, and boil.  I usually put a little more cheese once it is out of the bag.  You may also want to plate a cup of fruit that is in season!  Enjoy!!

  1. Hi there- Thanks for reminder- I’ve been to a couple of women’s brunches where we did this and it was a fun idea and works great! The hardest thing is the waiting =) but then again we just drank our coffee and visited with each other so the time went by pretty fast- Have a great holiday weekend.

    1. The wait is hard since it is breakfast!! But, it is worth the wait! 🙂 When the omelet comes out, you could swear you had been to IHOP or Denny’s! I cannot believe I forgot this. Hubby gets a gold star! Blessings!! Juliana

God bless you! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
