Problem: You love omelets but lack the finesse required to prepare them traditionally. Let’s face it—unless you’re Alton Brown or you’ve been practicing like you would for a tryout, folding an omelet without it falling apart can be a challenge. Here’s an ingenious solution for you if the world ever saw one.


  • 2-3 Eggs

  • Your choice Shredded Cheese

  • Your choice of Omelet Veggies & Meat


  1. First, carefully crack your eggs into a large Zip-Lock bag. Seal the bag tight and mix the eggs together by squeezing the bag until the yolks are mixed together with the whites of the egg. Now, add your omelet ingredients and cheese, seal the bag again and mix them completely throughout the egg. When sealing the bag, make it as air tight as possible.

  2. Next, place the bag into a pot of boiling water and let cook for around 5-10 minutes until the egg reaches omelet consistency; check this by momentarily removing the bag from the water using tongs or a spoon. Once finished cooking, let it cool for a moment and your omelet should come out of its bag with ease.

  3. Plate your dish, perhaps top with additional shredded cheese, and enjoy.
