Although I learned how to make a "proper" omelette in cooking class, I rarely make them. I take all of the ingredients I want for an omelette and sauté them first, then pour the beaten eggs over them and make a "scramblette". I actually prefer it to a real omelette. Most restaurants seem to overcook them, so if I don't make them myself I don't have them.

Something along the same lines. When travelling, I often have access to an in-room microwave oven and small fridge. Because 1.) I'm somewhat cheap, and 2.) most of the hotel's "continental breakfast" offerings aren't on my diet, I usually just buy my own eggs and make omelets in the microwave.

It's pretty simple really. Just whisk together 3 eggs and a couple pinches of salt with a fork and pour it into a greased saucer or shallow ramekin. Pop it in the microwave for 1.5 to 2 minutes (or until set), then take it out and sprinkle cheese on half and fold it over. Breakfast on the go in less than 5 minutes.

I can't see doing this unless I was stuck without a skillet. I can also see the point of doing it with a bunch of kids who want to participate in the making of breakfast, either slumber party or camping.

Another interesting and useful 'Steve-Post.' I nearly always learn something from you. Thanks.

And thank you, Charlie, for opening an interesting subject.

I wanted to mention that these have to be Ziploc Freezer bags rather than just Storage bags because they are thicker.

Of course, that doesn't necessarily extend to different brands or types of bags.

They have to be Ziplock brand or another that is BHA and dioxin free.
