Many of the bike tours and outdoor excursions we offer at Escape Adventures are kid and family friendly. Today’s recipe keeps that in mind:
Ziploc Omelets In A Bag
- Crack the eggs (2-3) into a large, resealable freezer bag. Press out most of the air, and seal. Shake or squeeze to beat the eggs. Open the bag, and add the ham, cheese, onion, green pepper, tomato, salsa, and mushrooms. Squeeze out as much of the air as you can, and seal the bag.
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place up to 8 bags at a time into the boiling water. Cook for exactly 13 minutes. Open the bag, and let the omelet roll out onto a plate. The omelet should roll out easily.
This is an easy recipe for kids to help with and it also allows each person to create their own custom omelet based on their individual tastes. It also makes for very easy cleanup around the campfire. This recipe goes perfectly with the campfire potatoes we talked about last week.
Ziploc omelets in a bag and other easy meals made in plastic bags have long been debated. In the past campers loved to cook meals in Ziploc bags, but in 2006 SC Johnson Co. released the below statement warning campers that omelets in a bag are not recommended. Since then, Ziplock has released a new heat resistant product that is safe for cooking. The Ziploc® Brand Zip ‘n Steam™ Microwave Steam Cooking Bags feature patented steam vents that allow the bag to maintain optimal steaming pressure, so food cooks at a higher temperature and retains more moisture. If you choose another brand, make sure to buy something heat resistant and made for cooking.
