How to Make Eggs in a Bag


Whether you are camping or you are just looking for an easy way to make omlets or scrambled eggs, use a boil-proof, sealable plastic bag that offers easy clean-up, quick cooking and the same taste as making them in a pan. Because you make the eggs in the bag, you do not need to use oil in a pan. You also use fewer dishes. Make sure you use bags that are intended for boiling because regular zip-top bags might melt in the boiling water.

Step 7

Drop each bag into the boiling water, keeping it at a rolling boil as the eggs cook. Leave the bags in the water at least 3 minutes. If you have more than four bags in the water, expect to leave them in as long as 8 minutes.

Step 8

Remove the omelets from the water, using tongs to avoid burning yourself. Check that the eggs are cooked. Return the bags to the water if they need more time and check again after a minute.
