Omelet in a Bag

Second only to my boil in bag cooking, this is the best camping recipe ever! It turned out so well, that I even made them at home after our trip to Yellowstone! You can make these for 1 to 20, all you need is more eggs and a bigger pot!

Beat desired number of eggs with a splash of milk. I make our omelets with 3-4 eggs each, but you can make them smaller.

Divide the egg mixture evenly into heavy duty freezer bags. I use pint-sized Ziploc brand freezer bags. Don’t use cheap bags, they’ll melt!  At this point you can freeze the eggs in the bags for camping. Just throw them into the cooler frozen and use them after they’ve thawed.

Add your fillings into your egg bags. Squeeze out as much of the air as you can from the bags before sealing. Gently squeeze bags to mix up your fillings into the egg mixture.

Place bags into a large pot of boiling water.

You can eat them from the bag…
