No Muss or Fuss Omelet

Easy, Easy Omelet for One or Many

This is a quick and easy clean up breakfast, brunch or even dinner.                                               

For breakfast with guests: Assemble your ingredients like a salad bar; if you have several people, and let each person build their own omelet. 

Take a small sandwich size Ziploc freezer bag, using a water-proof marking pen; write each diner's name on a bag. 

Break two eggs into bag. (Substitute 1/2 cup Egg Beaters, if you desire).Squish the bag with your hands to mix the yolk and white together. 

Arrange ingredients on the counter and let each person choose the ingredients for their own bag. Use whatever you like,some suggestions: Lean ham or Canadian Bacon, crumbled crisp bacon,green pepper, mushrooms, onion, artichoke hearts, tomato, low fat cheddar cheese,feta cheese.

After adding the above, press excess air out and seal. Put the bags into a large pot of boiling water, uncovered, for exactly 13 minutes. Remove from water with tongs. Unzip bag and slide the omelet out onto a plate.

 ** DO NOT use more than two eggs per bag and increase the size of your pot according to number of bags. You can do up to 10 bags in a large soup kettle, use a 2 or 3 quart saucepan for 2 or 3 bags. When ready to eat, serve with  such toppings as sour cream, salsa or Tabasco. 

Let your imagination be your guide! 

Serve with fresh fruit on the side or a two slices of turkey bacon and voila!
