Instructions

Prepare ingredients based on how many omelets you will make. Have each guest write his name with a permanent marker on a quart-size freezer. Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large), into the bag and shake to combine them. Put out a variety of ingredients such as cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns and salsa. Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag. Get the air out of the bag, zip it and shake. Place the bags into a large kettle of rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. Usually 6-8 omlets can be cooked in a large pot. For more, make another pot of boiling water. Do not allow bags touch sides of pot. If necessary, put on another pot. Open the bags and the omelets will roll out easily.
