If there is one thing I’m an expert on, it’s omelettes. They are literally the best form of egg. The only problem is when trying to eat them at family gatherings and brunches no one is able to enjoy them at the same time since they take so gosh darn long. However, this Easter my grandma came up with the answer to all of our problems with one fool-proof plan and a couple of ziplock bags.
We simply had an “Omelette-In-A-Bag Bar”.
All you need is:
- Different bowls of cheeses, veggies, and meats (it’s all up to you)
- Pot of boiling water
- 1 Ziplock bag per person
- a Sharpie
First get a pot of water to a boil on the stove. As the water heats up you have time to get started on your omelette. Each person grabs a plastic baggie and writes their name on it (just so you know the difference when you take them all out of the pot). Then everyone cracks 2 eggs each and puts a splash of milk into their very own bag. After that it’s a free-for-all with what you want to mix in to your bag. The more cheese, veggies, and meat, the better. When you are finished adding all of your ingredients to your own bag, you close it up, and mush it around in your hands, making sure everything is completely mixed together. Once everyone is all done mixing their little concoctions in their plastic bags, place all the bags into the pot of boiling water for 13 minutes. At 13 minutes they should be all cooked and ready to take out of the pot. Simply return each bag o’ omelette to it’s rightful owner and they are free to open the bag and plop the beautiful, almost picturesque omelette onto their plates.
It’s as easy as that! They taste fluffy, look as though they were flipped to perfection, and the best part is that everyone can enjoy them together!
