Omelet in a Bag-Camping Recipe

Looking for a quick, easy, and yummy breakfast for camping trips?? Well Omelet In A Bag is perfect for camping trips!!  Normally when we camp we just eat MRE's or sandwiches or something...we don't make any "real food".  This past weekend though we went camping at Garner State Park and decided to try Omelets In A was AMAZING!!


  • Eggs (3 per omelet)
  • Diced Ham 
  • Mushrooms
  • Onion
  • Green Bell Pepper
  • Tomato
  • Cheese (topping)
  • Pint Sized Ziploc Freezer Bags (Get the Ziploc brand...other brands won't work)


  • Chop all of your veggies for the omelets.  You can even do this at home before you go camping or if your lucky your grocery store might sell chopped veggies. 
  • Start heating a large pot of water.
  • Crack three eggs into each Ziploc bag. Close the bag, remove as much air as possible, and seal the bag. Squish the eggs to "beat" them.  
  • Add your ham and veggies to the eggs.  Close the bag, remove as much air as possible, and mix the ingredients together.
  • Once your pot of water is boiling, add your bag to the water. Be careful that your bag doesn't touch the pot or it will melt the bag. I held onto a corner of my bag to make sure it wasn't touching the sides but I don't think you have to do this...I was just cautious because I didn't want to ruin everyone's breakfast!
  • Cook for about 13-16 minutes until the eggs in the bag feel semi-firm.
  • Open the bag, roll the omelet onto a plate, and top with cheese.
