Helpful hints

  • Add black pepper or Mrs. Dash® herb seasoning for extra flavor.
  • Works great for a group, since each person can pick what ingredients they want in their omelet.
  • Serve with English muffin, bagel, fruit, or toast.
  • Cook up to 6 omelets in a large pot. 
  • For a lower cholesterol omelet use 3 egg whites or 1/2 cup low cholesterol egg product instead of whole eggs.
  • If you are on a lower protein diet make the omelot with one egg. Count as 7 grams protein.
  • Research on cooking with plastics shows the safest plastic for use with food is polypropylene. Avoid polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which can leach into the food. If you are still concerned you can make this recipe in a skillet without using the zip-top bags.

Do you use 2 eggs or 12, it changes from recipe to method. Also bu squashing the air out, you are limiting the mixing ability, the mix has nowhere to go. Lastly , and most important, boiling the contents in a polythene bag, is causing Dioxins to pour out of the polyrhene in to your food. Dioxin was the predominant 'ingredient' in Agent Orange. Dietitian comment: You repeat the process with remaining ingredients to make 6 servings. Research on cooking with plastics shows the safest plastic for use with food is polypropylene. Avoid polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which can leach into the food. If you are still concerned you can make this recipe in a skillet without using the zip-top bags.

We have made these while camping and everyone enjoyed them. We used an egg product to make the process easier since we had a lot of kids on the campout. efreeman we didn't have any problems with the bags melting.

I have just joined the site as my husband will soon start dialysis. however I live in Denmark is it possible to have a conversion so weights and messures automatically come up in metric? Dietitian comment: Thanks for the suggestion. We are exploring ways to bring metric measures to our recipes in the future.

is it safe to put a plastic bag in boiling water? Ziploc's website said it will melt the bags.

We have made these while camping. Found a similar recipe in a camping cookbook. It works very well.
