Omelet in a Bag Recipe

omelet in a bagGoing camping with the family this summer? Here's an easy recipe for omelets that you cook inside a plastic sandwich bag. I love it because there's no eggy mess in the frying pan to clean-up. How do you do it?


Omelet in a Bag from Road Trip

4 to 5 eggs

Toppings (cheese, bacon bits, veggies, etc.)



Whisk all the ingredients together with a fork. Pour the omelet mixture into a sandwich-sized ziplock plastic bag. Make sure the seal is tight. Bags can be stored in the refrigerator or cooler until ready to use at the campground.

Bring large pan of water to a boil. Carefully place the plastic bag in the boiling water. Let it boil for 14 minutes or until the omelet is nearly set. If you overcook it, it will be rubbery. Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the omelet, the altitude, and the size of the pan. The omelet will continue to cook in the bag once it is removed from the water so remove the bag when the center of the omelet is not quite firm.
