Omlet in a Bag

Oh back to school time, the time of extremely busy weeknights, not enough time to fix wonderful meals for you family....or is it?  Weeknight meals do not need made out of a box or pre-packaged containers.  Everyone loves breakfast for dinner, and this is an easy way to make everyone happy.

The instructions are simple.  Gather your favorite omlet fixin''s a few suggestions:

handful of cubed ham
2 Tbsp cheese--cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan, monterey jack
handful diced turkey (or deli turkey sliced)
1-2 Tbsp bacon crumbles
handful fresh spinach leaves
1 Tbsp yellow or green onions, diced
handful of asparagus, diced
handful of sliced mushrooms
1 Tbsp salsa
1 Tbsp pesto (my favorite)
1-2 Tbsp diced green or red peppers
dash of salt and pepper
dash of hot sauce

Put a large pot on the stove filled half way with water and bring to a boil.

Then, whip up 2 eggs per person in a bowl with a fork and put it in a quart size heavy duty ziplock bag (not the cheap flimsy stuff).  Have everyone add their favorite ingredients, seal up the bags and write each person's name on their bag with a Sharpie.

Place bags in boiling (up to 8 bags) water and cook for 13 minutes.  Open and the omlets should slide out easily.  Enjoy :)
