Had to pass this one along

Every once in a while you come across a recipe that is so interesting or intriguing that you feel you need to pass it along. This is one of those recipes. I'd never heard of it and was curious enough to try it. It was amazingly easy, tasty and fun. It's called "Eggs in a bag."
Take a sandwich size Ziploc bag and break two eggs into it. Squish the eggs up well with your hand. Add any kind of filling you like in an omelette. I used diced onion, diced ham, diced bell pepper, cheese, chile jalapeno and salt and pepper. Squish some more. Seal top and drop into some boiling water. Let the bag boil for exactly 13 minutes. What you end up with is a perfect omelette, fluffly and oil free. Easy clean-up too.
We also had this dish at a fundraiser breakfast. They had us write our name on the Ziploc with a marking pen. This was a cool way of indentifying your dish.
