Being a bit lazy when it gets to wash up time ... ;)

I find this is good occasionally:

Couple of eggs,
sliced ham,
grated cheese,
diced tomatoes,
herbs ... to you liking.

Mix in a bowl ... pour into large ziplock gladbag ... place in large billy of warm water and bring to boil until cooked.

Rinse bowl and tip bag of cooked contents back in.

Clean up ... Rinse bowl and burn bag. ( or your choice of eco disposal )

One easy omelette. :D

not a camping meal, but funny all the same.
went to a mates place one time and after quite a few beers we got hungry, so he went to the freezer and took out some hotdog sausages.
put the sausages and a couple of eggs in the electric kettle.

don't laugh...it works.

cheers

Do you squeeze the air out when cooking or leave the air in the bag and seal up?

Have done this many times and my tips are below.
Better option is to mix it the ziplok bag and tip omelette once cooked onto a piece of toast - hence no washing up!
also put the ziplok bag inside a second ziplok bag as the outside bag gets brittle with the boiling and can crack - so I always use two bags.
Yobbo - squeeze the air out makes it easier to fit in billy.

Be carefull with this guys, the bags arnt built for heat and the chemicals will leach from the bag into the engredients.
Zip-lock bags are manufactured from polyethylene plastic which is predisposed to soften and leach when subjected to high temperatures. Since the egg and cheese contained in an omelet includes fat of their own the mixture tends to get even hotter then the boiling water its placed in..

If you can find boiling bags they will be much healthier to use.

Bugger there's always a catch what about an oven bag and cable tie?
