Ziploc Omelets Recipe from the 10/18/05 Alumni Sandstorm
>>From: Claudia Stoffel ('68WB)


Wouldn't this be fun -- to have a ZIPLOCK OMELET PARTY??
Prepare all the ingredients: even a couple of far-out choices! Like
anchovies, or tiny shrimp.

Have a couple of people bring coffee cake... a couple more bring fruit,
tea, coffee, or ? CHAMPAGNE anyone?? and OFF to a fun party!

Ingredients (Each serving):
Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the [Ziplock FREEZER] bag (not 
more than 2) shake to combine them.

Put out a variety of ingredients such as:
different cheeses, ham, bacon, sausage, onion, green pepper, mushrooms, 
tomato, seasonings, etc.

Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag, shakes it, 
[and writes their name on their baggie with a Sharpie.]

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

Place the bags (zipper part to the top for best results in rolling out) 
into LARGE POT rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes... [keep 
water at a rolling boil.]

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!

Have toppers like: guacamole, sour cream, salsa, etc.
Notes from Kathie Moore Adair ('69)

We just had a small family reunion and we tried them. Our cousin tried
it out at home first to make sure that it would work. They worked great.
We did them for 16 people. You have to be careful not to put too many
baggies in the boiling water, and you must keep the water boiling. We
had a blast. Write your name on them with a Sharpie. Time them.

Put it all in the baggies, squish it all up and boil it. Make sure to
use freezer baggies, they are tougher in the boiling water. Don't use
too much cheese or fresh tomatoes... makes more liquid.

They turned out great and everyone loved them. Rolls right out of the 
baggie as a perfect omelet. We had some skeptics, but they turned out 
good. Try them, you'll like them.
