*** It has been brought to my attention that there is some concern about the use of plastics in boiling water. I’ve read several sources and this concern has mixed responses. Here are a few of the links I read: The Leaching of Plastics, To Make an Omelette, Ziploc Omelettes are Not Recommended, and Snopes. My suggestion (and one I personally will try) is to use Ziploc Zip and Steam bags. These microwave cooking bags should be acceptable cooking in boiling water as well.
I am no omelette maker (and do you spell it omelet or omelette? I looked it up but the dictionary had both ways. I think omelette is prettier. I know, I’m obtuse.)
Anyhoo….I have no idea where I found the idea of omelettes in a bag. I just knew I didn’t have the hang of cooking them individually. Omelettes in a bag were my solution. I believe the original idea probably came from a camper looking for an easy meal while sitting around the fire. They done good! If I can make it look this pretty so can you!
Gather the ingredients for your omelette. This can include anything and everything. I raid our leftovers and salad veggies and start dumping into the bag. I use meat leftovers (ham and bologna are pictured), cheese (I had gorgonzola and cheddar), tomatoes, mushrooms, peppers, cooked potatoes and anything else that suits your fancy. Squish all the ingredients together inside the bag.
