I have been told that this works quite well.


(This works great !!! Good for when all your family is together. The best part is that no one has to wait for their special omelet !!!)
Have guests write their name on a quart-size Ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker.
Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.
Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc.
Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shake. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.
Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more, make another pot of boiling water.
Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.
Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake; everyone gets involved in the process and a great conversation piece.

Apparently during the cooking process all the ingredients form into the bottom of the bag and form the shape of an omelet. Post your email and I will send you the pictures that came with the email I received. My co-worker is going to try it this weekend and see if it really works. I will talk to her when I get back from Italy and see how it went.

Well lets just say that this isn't as easy as you people think it is. And I am not just saying this because I have made chili, green beans, tomato sauce, meatballs and my famous "Philly" cheese steaks. This is allot harder than I thought it would be.

First we went to the store to get Ziploc bags. I saw so many sizes and then other ones that looked like Ziplocs but they were called Press n Seal. Not sure if Press N Seal would work or what size is best I asked for someone to help me. When a boxboy arrived at the aisle, he was about 20 years old. Roll Eyes He didn't even look like he could cook a cheese steak let alone an omelet in a bag, but I asked him anyways. So I ask, what size bag
he thinks would hold 2 eggs and some fixins and he asked me if I could please get my kid to stop climbing up the shelves and knocking off the boxes. HOW RUDE !!! Mad Doesn't he know that if it wasn't for kids like her, he wouldn't have a job !!! Big Grin Belladonna Jr does this at every store we go into, I don't
see why this 20yo kid thinks this is HIS store. So I asked him again about the bags and he told me that I need to get my kid off the other shelves now. WHO DOES THIS BOY THINK HE IS !!! Eek Mad

He still hasn't answered my question, so I ask him to get the manager. The manager comes and its this little skinny blonde woman. She must be like 110 lbs and no way she knows how to make an omelet, but I have to get some answers so when she gets here I asked her. She said that I need to keep my child, off the shelves and not to let her run around the store. I guess the BOY had went to tell on us, not to get help. So I explained to her that I was there
as a customer, and to spend money in her store. I told her that I was a big time member of many famous wine boards and could have her head if I wanted, but now I just want to know if a press n seal is the same as a Ziploc, and why they are so much more than the ones with the Alligator on the box. Roll Eyes

She explained that the bags were for sandwiches and these big ones were for the freezer. That kinda made me upset because I told her I was making an omelet and how can I do that in the freezer, duh !!!. She was so stupid. Confused So when I said that she all of a sudden started to walk away. She said if she sees Jr on the shelves one more time she will kick us out. Funny, that's the same thing they said at Staples, Costco, and Cost Plus, these people must know my ex boyfriend and he is
telling them to do this to me. She says hurry up and get your bags and leave before I have to ask you to leave. GRRRRR she will pay someday.... Mad

So the ones that say Ziploc are 5 dollars, and the one with the alligator on the box are only 1.99. Its just eggs, so I get the ones for 1.99 because they both say sandwich bags on them. I think an omelet is kinda like a egg sandwich so that will be the right size.

I also get some low fat cream cheese to put in it, and some veggies too. I am watching what I eat and I think using cheddar or jack is just going to be too fattening. So we are on the way to the checkout and jr sees these Chips Ahoy and grabs one off the display from the very bottom. Well the whole thing came crashing down !! About 50 packs of cookies hit the floor. Eek It could have killed the both of us. It was probably that box boy that put together that display. He did it like that on purpose I am sure. He probably knows my ex boyfriend too. Well the manager came running over and she asked us to leave. I said I couldn't leave without my bags and cheese so she rang me up and said to not return to her store if we are going to act like this. Now I knowshe must know my ex, because we act fine, he is crazy and so is everyone that knows him !!! Mad Eek

SO we get home and its time for omelets. Jr asks if I have to drive over the bags before we go in, and I tell her we are not having steak so not this time. I cant wait till that kid can reach the pedals, then I can make tomato sauce while she gets the steaks ready. TEAM BELLA !!! Detroit Iron Chef !!!

Ok so we go inside to see what else we have to put in the omelets. Jr says she wants pop tarts in hers, and who am I to deny her anything. All I have is cherry Pop Yarts left, and she says it's ok, but now wants some bacon too. I reach past the pot of leftover meatballs and rice and don't see any in the fridge. I open the freezer and a whole box of Otter Pops falls on my foot !!!!! Mad Mad Mad OWWWWWW, then I stepped on the cat. He jumps up and scratches me, I try and grab him, but he is all slippery from the cheese on his back from last weeks Phillys. Oh and he smells like my you know what too. That cat is stupid. Jr says she is hungry, so back to the omelets.

I want onions, meatballs, and cheese in mine. Jr wants pop tarts in hers. I get out the alligator bags, eggs and all the rest of the stuff and then come back to look up the recipe on here again. HELLO !!! I was going to ask some questions about this, but I knew that Board-O would just tell me to blanch it in
flour blah blah blah. Well then I see it says quart size bags. I have one question, who makes a sandwich the size of a quart ? Confused Confused That's just stupid. So I open up the little box withthe alligator on it, and a strip of twisty ties falls out. Do these come free with all Ziploc bags ? Confused

So we take out 4 eggs, but that doesn't look like enough so I grab out 4 more. Since there was only 2 of us, I thought it would be kinda stupid to write our names on the bags, so we skipped that part. But to save time, I put all the eggs in one big bag. A tip for all of you chefs out there. If you want to make an omelet you have to break some eggs in a bag. I did mine with the meat tenderizer mallet. It was fast and did the job.

Another question.. What do you guys do to get the egg shells out of the bag ? I just used my hand, but they were slippery. And then the cat licked my hand one time when I was shaking the shells off, but its just us eating so we don't mind. Oh and another tip, if you want meatballs in your omelet, take them out ahead of time. I spent almost an hour picking the rice off the outside of them, just to be able to use them in my omelet !!! Mad Mad UGGGHHHH So now onto this omelet. I have to say, whoever thought of this has to be an idiot.

In my bag I added the meatballs, cream cheese and a few tomato slices. Jr got her bag of Pop Tarts and wanted to put them in her bag.
I said we needed to crush them up first, so Jr grabbed the keys and said she is ready to help cook !! Big Grin I told her we didn't need to go outside I can just hit them this bottle of wine. Oh, it is a nice Champer by the way, I have been sipping on it for a few days now and its really starting to sing !! So when I hit the Pop Tarts with the bottle, the Champagne all fizzed out !!! Mad Mad GRRRRRR!!! Jr was right, we should have used the car !!!.
Oh and the Champer, 88BD by the way. Jr put in her Pop Tarts and we were on the way to omelets !!! Razz

I poured in half the eggs in each bag and put one of those twisty ties on each bag. Jr really likes the picture of the alligator on the box. Best of all I like the price. 95 BD points on the price, $1.89 for 250. Highly recommended !!!. So we go the water up to a boil and then I wondered. The recipe called for making 6-8 omelets. We are only making two. I had enough boiling water in there for more, so I made up four more bags and figured I can just save them for later.

I put the cream cheese in all the bags, then I put some leftover Sonic Burgers in one, refried beans and hot sauce in another. That was my Mexican invention. And the others I just put in more meatballs only one of them I left some of Hunters sauce on it and the rice, just to see if it was better this way. I tied up all the bags like it said and dropped them in the pot. Jr and I were standing over like a pigeon on some old In-n-Out fries in the parking lot,
waiting for the magic that would be omelets. I got Jr a chair to stand on and she put the leg on the cats tail !!! Eek Eek That cat jumped up, knocked the cream cheese in the air, it hit the ceiling fan and SPLAT !!! Low Fat cream cheese everywhere !!! I had just got through cleaning up the cheese wiz a few months
ago and now this !!! UGHHHHH Stupid Cat !!! Mad

So we went back to the pot and it was all yellow with little light brown bloated puffy things, with what look like red frosting on it,floating in it and a bunch of baggies bubbling around in the middle. Confused I got a big spoon to move it around to see what was going on and one of the bags stuck to the spoon and came out of the pot. The water had white chunks in it now. They looked like Easter eggs when you make egg salad with them. I don't know what was wrong with that water, but maybe I should have used bottled water instead. When I looked at the clock, I think it was 13 min so we were ready to eat. I put the bacon in the pot with the omelets too. It was still frozen so at least this way it can be kinda cooked before we eat it. When I went to take out the omelets it looked like a big yellow scrambled egg with meatballs, bloated beige things with frosting, and my tomato slices floating on top !!! Mad Confused Frown UGGHHHHH That water
ruined my bags !!! I was so upset. We had waited all this time and this recipe does not work at all. I tasted the stuff that was in the water, and with some of Hunters pasta sauce it wasn't too bad. We got some rice, put that on top and put the rest of Hunters sauce on the top. So all was not lost.

I got the bacon out of the pot also, but it just tasted like eggs and pop tarts and it was kinda chewy. Jr liked it allot. Said it was my best bacon ever !!! Big Grin

So I give this recipe a BD 86. If you try to make this, make sure you use bottled water before you put the alligator sandwich bags in. I think it was the tap water in this apartment that ruined my meal. My landlord is a cheapo and wont get a water filter for the whole building or buy me one. He is an idiot.
I read somewhere that someone knew someone that had an apartment and the landlord said he would think about getting one. I bet my landlord even shops at that store where the stupid people work.

Italian Wino, I would say your recipe doesn't work. But try it over rice with some of Hunters Sauce for a real treat. Bon Apetit !! Big Grin
