Easy Omelet in a Bag

Stephanie Miller Dodson 2

"Perfect for camping or fun family-style cooking. Pop in all ingredients in a baggie and boil. This recipe can be easily modified to suit the tastes of the consumer. Add salsa or hash browns. Fun for the whole family and is a great camping food since it doesn't require a frying pan. You can even use Egg Beaters® or other substitute."
