Looking for an approach that allows you to make multiple meals at once with minimal clean-up?
An omelet is an ever-customizable, high-protein option that is undoubtedly one of the best breakfast foods ever. But depending on your culinary skills, you may struggle with certain parts of it—that flip is all in the wrist!—that are necessary to earn the right to call your egg concoction an omelet. Get it wrong, and your omelet could be a scramble, an overcooked disaster, or just a stovetop mess.
Luckily, there's a way to perfect the omelet without leaving anything to chance, and it can be done in batches if you're doing meal prep. Just grab your favorite ingredients and start boiling your omelets in a bag!
Opting to boil your omelet rather than frying it in a pan saves you time on dishes. Instead of scrubbing away at a pan coated with egg remnants and cheese, you can simply dump the boiling water out of the pan. Your dishes done in a matter of seconds, rather than minutes.
- Large eggs, 4
- Low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded, 1/4 cup
- Bell pepper, diced, 1/2 cup
- Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
- Fill a pot two-thirds full of water and place it on high heat on the stove until it boils.
- Combine the eggs, peppers, cheese, and seasonings to a freezer bag. Remove all of the air from the bag, and zip it tight.
- Add the bag to the boiling water, and set the timer for 13 minutes.
- Keep an eye on the bag throughout the cooking time, and be sure to keep the bag in the water the entire time.
- After 13 minutes, carefully remove the bag from the boiling water. Be cautious of steam when opening the bag. The omelet should slide right out onto your plate.
- Top with salsa or avocado and enjoy!
