Zip Lock Bag Omelette

This is one of those how to's that you can find references to everywhere, but I will include a short version of my own. If you have never tried this method, you should. Great for the kids too!
I don't like to cook much, but eating is another story. Sometimes cooking can be a really fun experience, but most often these days I prefer the quick and easy. This little item fits the bill perfectly. I would file this item in my bachelor chow recipes.
You need your favorite ingredients for an omelette. I typically use about 2 tablespoons of grated or shredded cheese, and a little cubed ham. Suit your tastes with the type of cheese and fillings you prefer.
2 Eggs are about right for me. Go for 3 if you prefer a little larger omelette.
1 Zip lock type Freezer bag (sandwich size).
1 Sauce pan of water (boiling)
Beat the eggs thoroughly and add to zip lock bag. Some people like a little milk or butter added, so go ahead be creative.
Add your additional ingredients (Cheese, ham, etc) to the beaten eggs in the bag. Try to remove most of the air from the Zip lock bag, then seal.
Drop the bag into the bowling water for about 13 minutes.
Remove the bag from the boiling water carefully so as not to burn yourself, open the Zip lock bag and your now finished omelette will slide right out onto your plate. Season with salt and pepper or what have you and enjoy. Another plus for these omelettes is you can prepare several and cook all at the same time, and have all ready simultaneously.
Clean up is a breeze. This always makes a good breakfast item for a campsite if your the outdoors type too. No pictures have been included in this how to, because you really don't want to see my kitchen :)
