Cat Post: New way to cook OMELETS.

Just got an email from someone with this new way to cook OMELETS.

Haven’t tried it yet…maybe I’ll try this tomorrow….I’m one to experiment with cooking (you may recall my kahlua and baileys pancakes).

Have you ever heard of this? (This works great!) Good for when all of your family is together and no one has to wait for their special omelet) Have guests write their name on a quart-size zip-lock 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, hashbrowns, salsa, mushrooms, Etc. Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice in to their bag and shake, Make sure to get the air out of the bag and then 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 or toast . Everyone gets involved in the process and what a great conversation piece.
P.S. quote from one lady, "I tried it this weekend and mixed mine into a bowl before putting into bag, I also added salt, pepper and a little milk and a tiny sliver of butter. Since I had added so many ingredients, ours took 15 minutes to get done, and I was amazed as to how large and fluffy they turned out. It will be a staple in our house now for making omelets.

Don’t use sandwich bags -they will melt, use quart freezer bags.
