Boiling food in Ziploc bags is a popular way to cook when sitting around the camp fire or when trying to make a quick meal. The benefits of boiling food in this manner is that there is no clean up and the process is very simple. Next time you go camping you can try this boil-in-a-bag omelet recipe.
Fill a cook pot with water and place it on the stove or over a camp fire. Allow for the water to boil.
Place your food in a Ziploc bag. A popular meal to prepare in Ziploc bags is an omelet. Put your eggs and add-ins such as bacon and ham into the bag. Shake the bag to make sure the ingredients are all combined together. Squeeze all of the air out of the bag for best results.
Put the Ziploc bag in the boiling water. Let the bag cook until the food appears to be done. You can tell when an omelet is done when it takes shape in the bottom of the bag and is no longer runny.
Remove the bag from the water by grabbing the top of the bag with tongs, being careful not to put a hole in the bag.
Cut the top of the bag off with scissors so that there is a large opening at the top. Pour the food out of the Ziploc bag onto a plate.
