Great for camping. Quick, simple and nourishing. Checked out the zip loc site re: toxicity of the bag. To be honest you would have to eat a lot of food, cooked in the bags to be affected. No BPA's or dioxin. I will still cook this way. If you can microwave in it, it's OK. Sometimes I think there is too much scaremongering about cooking methods and different foods.
We love to do this with large groups. Prep before you go and easy clean up. I recommend using small ziplock freezer bags. Trust me I'm speaking from experience. :)
One of my favorites while we are camping
We make these quite often while camping. You can modify it with different ingredients i.e. cooked ham, bacon, sausage, tomatoes, different cheeses, etc. The kids love putting these together. We use freezer bags (thicker) and mark the name of who's omelet it is on the top of the bag with black permanent marker.
Worked great! I've heard of these before but not tried them. I didn't follow recipe exactly, only the cooking method. I whisked the eggs before adding to bag. Used black pepper, garlic salt, tiny bit of paprika, sliced sausage links, and garden tomatoes. I'm sure it would be great as written, too, lol but I was trying to get this done during my son's nap time and didn't feel like prepping veggies. This would be great for camping, houseguests, or the morning after slumber parties. Worked perfectly, but also LOOKED nice, which is not something I was expecting out of something cooked in a sandwich bag! I used regular, generic sandwich bags and it was fine, no need for pricier freezer bags.
