Here's another use for zip-lock bags, and it is has the added benefit that it will save you from cleaning pots and pans after breakfast (or another other meal, for that matter).
First of all, get a large pot of water boiling on the stove. Make sure that you have one quart size freezer zip-lock bag for each person. Don't use the thin kind, make sure you use the thicker freezer variety.
Start with a couple of eggs for each person. Crack the eggs into the zip lock bag. Seal it (squeezing out the air), and then squish the bag and squeeze it and shake it to get the egg mixed up. Then add whatever other omelet ingredients you like:
- green onions
- green peppers
- red peppers
- bean sprouts
- salt and pepper
- whatever else you might like
Now get the air out, zip the bag shut tight and shake and squeeze the mixture again.
Place the zip-lock omelet bag in the pot boiling water and boil for about 12-14 minutes. When done, remove from the water, open the bag and the omelet will roll right out onto your plate.
This is a great idea for camping. It allows everyone to help make their own meal, is really easy to do, saves cleaning the pots and pans, and makes for a lot of fun.
