    Don't know if this really works? but seems like it would, just in case any of you need a fast and easy way to feed a bunch of people brunch, or even dinner!!!

    It could also be an easy way to fix breakfast the night before when you know it's going to be a busy morning...

    (This works great !!! Good for when all your family is together.
    The best part is that no one has to wait for their special omelet !!!)

    Have guests write their name on a quart-size Ziploc freezer bag 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, 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 a great conversation piece.


    This post came to me with pictures showing that it actually worked, but again, I haven't tried it myself... but sounds good!?!

    all the best,

    This sounds great--and EZ! Just what I'm looking for to feed myself!

    Keep those ideas coming!

    That sounds really good. My kind of cooking. No cleaning a yucky frying pan. Well done.

    Hi Victoria,

    Not only does it work it really works well. We tried them on a camping trip with several people attending. Even the little ones were creating their own with very little assistance. Cooking was a breeze. Clean up wasn't bad either. But the best part was being able to eat in a group rather than each seperate or somebody getting cold food. Maineweezie

    Seemed like it would work, BUT, there's nothing like the voice of experience when thinking about trying something new!!!

    now if ALL meals could be this easy.... if they weren't so expensive, I'd resort to those freeze-dried meals for campers you just add boiling water too, if I remember right. Or did they just taste so good because we were outdoors????

    all the best,

    This will be fun to do over Christmas as we are going to visit my mom and my husband's daughter and family. It will be an easy way for me to do something that is fun and easy.

    I appreciate this post.

    Merry Christmas!

    Hey Guys!

    According to Marthla, you don't make omelets for a bunch.

    You make them for BRUNCH.

    "Marthla" is how Gordon refers to Martha Stewart.
