Omelet in a Bag!!

My dear friend Stephanie Moore (you might know her from tv...) is an avid reader of this blog, and she's always telling me what she's making for her husband Ryan... So the other day when she mentioned this crazy-cool omelet recipe with ZERO clean-up, I jumped on the chance to have her guest blog it.  

So, read and enjoy! 

I first saw this amazing feat of omelet creation while vacationing in the Ozarks with my family.  Making a custom made omelette for all 20 plus of us that were there would have been too difficult and a BIG mess for Grandma to tackle.

What you need:

-freezer ziplock bag (quart size works)
-fixings (green peppers, red peppers, onions, ham, cheese whatever you would put in an omelet)
-a large pot

First get your large pot of water boiling.

While that is getting ready take your ziplock and crack 2 eggs inside (can do three if you are really hungry) 
Fill the bag with your fixings. My husband and I included onions, red and green peppers and cheese.
Next close your bag and try and get all the air out.
Once you know its secure comes the fun part, smash all your ingredients together so it's all mixed up.
Once the water is boiling, drop the ziplocks in the water.  (tip: if you have more than one, you can label the bags with peoples names)
Boil for 13-15 minutes on high.
Then remove your bags using tongs, the bags get hot!
 Then it's easy, unzip your bag and slide out your perfectly shaped omelet onto your plate and ENJOY!

Once you try this, I promise you'll never go back!
Custom made, no mess omelets all with the slide of a ziplock!
