"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."

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, an...

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 ...

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. W...
