Breakfast Gathering :: The Ziploc Omelets.

A couple weeks ago, our Home Group (Bible study, small group, church gals, Pilgrims & Victors...) took to horse country for our annual retreat weekend. With a slew of ladies and their eating preferences, keepin it clean and "paleo" has generally been our safest bet. Our own Erin steer-headed the planning and grocery shopping and she sure did knock it out of the park!

Saturday morning, after gettin up to see the sunrise...which was so bashfully hidden behind a draping of clouds and overcast morning dew EVEN though we got up at the buttcrack of dawn to see its colors...we took to the kitchen to prep: The Omelet Bar.
While this looks like a simple matter of eggs and veggies for days (in a flawlessly rustic Anthro-esque stylized pic), I have come to share exactly HOW this omelet bar happened...because that's the real blog-worthy moment.

Erin's mom had tried this method for preparing omelets in a group setting and raved about it, so she decided we should try it for our group. Let me tell you. I was SKEP.TI.CAL.

Here's what we used:
  • Eggs
  • Coconut milk (or other milk of choice)
  • all the veggies...
    • Bell peppers
    • Zucchini 
    • Mushrooms
    • Onions
    • Brocolli
    • Tomatos
    • whatever suits your fancy but that's what we have here. 
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Ziploc really.

Here's what we did:
  1. Boil a big ole pot of water
  2. Grab a Ziploc quart freezer baggie and put your name on it in sharpie
  3. Crack two eggs (or however many you fancy in your omelet) into your baggie...SO strange. And may require a friend.
  4. Add 1/4-1/2 cup of coconut milk
  5. Throw in any and all veggies desired
  6. Add some salt and pepper to your baggie
  7. Close the baggie and squish it all together so it's all nice and mixed like this...
  8. Drop the bags in the boiling water and let them sit in it for about 15 minutes. No, I'm still not kidding. We did groupings of 4-5 baggies at a time but multiple pots could up the multi-tasking ante.
    9. You'll be able to tell that everything is cooked, once the substance is sort of solid...Here's what mine looked like when it was done:
    10. Slip it on out of the bag and enjoy!
    I mean, I could only eat about half of what's on my plate here on account of my surgery, but it was still seriously delicious and so easy!
    For anyone looking to mass produce a healthy and still personalized breakfast for your next gathering, THIS is your solution! So get to makin some Ziploc Omelets! And I leave you with a fresh make-up-less faced pic of the ladies who got their rise and shine on to prep for everyone! You're welcome!
Finding Fit,
