Minoo shared a very quick and mess less way of making omelette in large batch. This method does not involved turning of the omelette and it allows everyone to choose their own ingredients and the whole batch will be ready at the same time.
I think you will be amazed with this as I was when I first learned this way of making omelettes.
The Ziploc Omelette looks good in a roll instead of the regular pocket type if made using frying pan.
- quart size ziploc bags
- chopped cilantro
- diced sweet peppers
- chopped green onions
- diced tomatoes
- grated potatoes
- grated cheese
- simply anything you desire in an omelette like ham, mushroom, onion, etc
- Crack 2 eggs (large or extra large) into a quart size ziploc bag (not more than 2 eggs).
- Shake the bag to break up the eggs.
- Put in your favorite ingredients. Season with salt and pepper. Shake the bag to combine well.
- Remove the air before sealing the bag. Have your guests write down their names on the ziploc bag with a permanent marker.
- Bring a big pot of water to a boil. Place the bags into the rolling boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can cook about 6 to 8 omelette in a large pot.
- Remove the bags from boiling water and open the ziploc bag. Becareful as it is very hot. The omelet will roll out easily. This is a very healthy way to cook omelet as it does not need any oil.
This is a good way to serve breakfast as you can involved everyone to make their own special omelettes and the omelettes will be ready at the same time. You can make this for breakfast or brunch.
