Ziploc freezer bag Omelet recipe

I found this on our local newpaper forum -- though it was a neat idea - so I tried it
it was great I use 2 eggs and added a little milk like i normally would and added some grated sharp cheese. I am going to try it next with broccoli and cheese. came out and no pan to clean up also

Ziploc freezer bag Omelet recipe
Crack 2 eggs (large or extra large) into a quart-size ziploc freezer bag.(not more than 2) shake to combine them.
Add variety of items such as cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns salsa,etc. Add whatever you want to bag and shake.
Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.
Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes.
You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot.
Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily.
Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.
Make a bag up the night before and putting the bag in boiling water while you get ready for work. In 13 mins. you got a nice omelette for a quick breakfast.

This is actually not the best idea. See the previous discussion here.

I guess I don't get it. Vacuum bags are expensive. Why not just make eggs?

I will say only one thing here - ARRGGHH!!!

(Will also add that during the other thread concerning this topic, I did e-mail the Ziploc people about this, & they e-mailed me back saying that they do not recommend cooking anything in any of their plastic bag products - neither in boiling water or in the microwave.)

This has peaked my interest because on the box says Defrost & Reheat and gives direction for heating in the microwave. I also sent a email off to ziploc along with the recipe and asked them. Will post reply when I receive it.

Yes - please do post what they tell you. I'd be interested to see if it's different from what they e-mailed me. They didn't go into details concerning "defrosting or reheating". All they said in response to my question re: the "Ziploc Bag Omelette" recipe that has been going the e-mail route for the last year or so, was that "they do not advise or recommend using their plastic bag products for cooking purposes - in either boiling water or the microwave". Perhaps they have heat distinctions between cooking & "defrosting/reheating".

Have my email from ziploc they say nothing about chemical problem just the durablitiy of the bag itself but I find they hold up fine. anyways here is thier reply. oh and i did ask them about the chemical, I sent them the reciepe also.

Thank you for asking about using Ziploc® bags to make omelets. While we
appreciate hearing about new and innovative ways to use our products, we must be
cautious that these new ideas follow label directions.

Ziploc® bags are not designed or approved to withstand the extreme heat of
boiling and therefore, using Ziploc® bags to make any recipe that requires the
bag to be boiled is not recommended.

Like all of SC Johnson's products, Ziploc® bags can be used with confidence when
label directions are followed. All Ziploc® Containers and microwaveable Ziploc®
Bags meet the safety requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
for temperatures associated with defrosting and reheating food in microwave
ovens, as well as room, refrigerator, and freezer temperatures.



Please share these facts with others who may have this misleading information.
We also encourage people to go to www.ziploc.com for more information on the
proper use of this product.

Thank you for giving us a chance to set the record straight.

Regards,

Carolyn
