Recipe of the Month – Omelets in a Bag
Tracey Gooding of Brantford, Ontario, who shares her special recipe with us, says, “Works great to get everyone fed at once and with very little clean up. Kids especially like it!”
Eggs (2 eggs per person)
Shredded cheese (maximum of 1/8 cup per person)
Milk / Cream (1/2 T per person)
Butter (1/4 tsp per person)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)
Favorite omelet ingredients, such as green pepper, onion, mushrooms, ham, bacon or sausage, cut into small pieces.
Fill a pot 3/4 full of water and bring to a boil. (Tracey and her familiy use a Dutch oven pot, which accommodates 6-8 omelets easily.)
Give each kamper a Ziploc sandwich bag and write their name on it with a permanent marker. They may then add eggs, milk, cheese and other ingredients according to his or her preference. Close the sandwich bag, trying to get as much air out as possible.
Carefully kneed the bag to scramble the eggs and thoroughly combine the ingredients. Place each bag into the boiling water, and allow them to cook for 10 minutes*. Carefully remove each bag, open it and then slide a perfectly cooked omelet onto your plate. Enjoy!
*If you use more than 2 eggs, allow an extra 3-4 min for cooking time
