Recipe: Quick and Easy Ziploc Omelets for a Camping Trip


These omelets are delicious and quick as well as fun and easy for children to prepare while camping out or at the fishing camp. Our grandkids have enjoyed making these omelets ever since our good friend, Greg Tinsley at Mossy Oak, gave us the recipe.


  • 2 eggs per person
  • Shredded cheeses, ham, onions, green peppers, tomatoes, hash browns, salsa, bacon, herbs, seasonings
  • 1 quart-size freezer bag per person


Write each person’s name on both sides of the bag. Crack two eggs into each bag, and have each person add their favorite omelet ingredients. Press the air from the bag, and seal it. Gently shake the bag, and squash the contents. You can prepare the omelet bags before you leave for camping and put in your cooler with ice. Be sure to use them within 24 hours. Place the bags on your Coleman stove or grill, and boil the water for 13 minutes. Cut the bags, and roll out the omelets.

    We did these for a Scout troop a couple of weeks ago. It worked like a charm. No fussing about the ingredients because they each built their own.

    Instructions above were a little hazy at the end. Boil water in pan and then put bag into boiling water to cook for 13 or so minutes. 🙂
