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.
PLEASE CHECK WITH THE MANUFACTURER OF YOUR PLASTIC BAGS TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE SUITABLE FOR COOKING FOODS (NO LEACHING OF PLASTICS WHEN HEATED).
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
Definitely use the FREEZER bags! Anything less will spring a leak.
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.
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.
