Geek omelette - just for fun

Write the names of those you’re feeding on freezer Ziplocs bags with a permanent felt-tip.

Break two or three eggs into each bag. Add cheese, veggies, and spices to taste. (If you're feeding others, have the goodies prepared, and let them add their own fixin's.)

When everything's ready, squeeze as much air out of the bags as you can, and seal them. Then smoosh everything around inside until they're well mixed. Give each a shake to get all the goo in the bottom and off the sides.

Heat a big pot of water to a roiling boil, and add the bags. You can cook several in a two gallon pot. Boil 13 minutes for two eggs, 15 with three. Remove the bags from the water immediately when the time is up.

Note: this is really all you have to do. Don't get fancy, and things will work out perfectly. My Lady thought hers was a little soft, and nuked it for a few seconds. Mine was perfect. If I nuked one it would be very carefully, as I wouldn't want it to get too hard.

The omelettes will easily slide out of the bag onto the plate. Garnish and enjoy.
