Recipe by Stephanie Miller Dodson
"Perfect for camping or fun family-style cooking. Pop in all ingredients in a baggie and boil. This recipe can be easily modified to suit the tastes of the consumer. Add salsa or hash browns. Fun for the whole family and is a great camping food since it doesn't require a frying pan. You can even use Egg Beaters® or other substitute."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
While I agree this is a good camping recipe, or if you have a larger crowd for breakfast at home, it is definitely not a substitute for a quality omelet. I experimented with it several times, and it either turns out with the egg overcooked, or too runny. Good for those times when "quick and easy" takes precedence over taste.
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. :)
Great, but you must use qt. size FREEZER bags.
Sandwich size is too small, and food storage bags are too thin and will melt.
Definitely use the FREEZER bags! Anything less will spring a leak.
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.
Definitely a good idea for camping. I used a quart size bag because I didn't have resealable sandwich bag size. I would recommend smaller bag, as larger bag spread out ingredients to much. I also used only 1 egg and substituted fresh spinach for green pepper. I used too much mushroom and spinach for the amount of egg I used as these are watery products. I also found it seemed to stick to inside of bag. Think I will stick to fry pan inside the house.
