Monday Meal!

Ok, so this is more like breakfast, but it's a fun and easy way to make individual omelets. I know I usually do a full meal with sides and dessert when I do post recipes, but you'll just have to deal with one recipe today. :) Besides it's really fun and something the whole family can get into, including the kids.

Omelets in a Bag!

Have guests write their name on a quart-size freezer bag (MUST be a freezer bag b/c the other bags will melt) with permanent marker.

Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.

Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, salt, pepper, etc.

Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shake.

Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.

Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more, make another pot of boiling water.

Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.

Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake; everyone gets involved in the process and it's a great conversation piece.
This would be easy to do for camping too! Just put a pot of water over a campfire and do the same thing!

The men's group at our church made these at a picnic at a local park last year - hubby said they were fabulous, and everyone got to customize their own. :)
