Omelet in a Bag (4 Points+)

Omelet in a Bag was not an original creation but it is so amazing I had to share it.  My grandmother taught me how to do this and said she used to make these while camping.  Everyone can put in what they want and/or whatever you have handy and they all cook at the same time!  The best part is that there is NO OIL plus it's a super easy clean up-just throw the bag away!

Quart sized plastic freezer bag *Sharpie each name on to each bag*
2 eggs
anything else you want
     *Suggestions: salsa, turkey bacon bits, cilantro, chopped lunch meat, veggies, pico de gallo...

Fill a large pot and boil the water.  This may take some time depending on the size of the pot.  If you are making more than two omelets, use a large/tall stock pot.

Crack eggs into a bowl then pour into the plastic bag (it is easier to get shells out if you crack them into the bowl first).  Zip the bag and shake well.  Put in seasonings and anything else, shake and zip.  Make sure to get the air out of the bag when you zip the final time.

Place baggies into the boiling water and let boil for 11-14 minutes.  My uncle swears by 11 minutes but if you use anything liquid like salsa, the middle will still be runny at 11 minutes and you will need to cook the omelet longer.  Remove the omelet from the bag and enjoy! If you want cheese, top the omelet after removing it from the bag.

4 Points+ per serving not including extra additions.

$0.66 per serving if using organic eggs.  This price does not reflect additions outside of seasonings.
