Recipe of the Month
The recipe of the month is a recipe we recommend for you to try that we have tried making or want to try making. We hope you like what we pick each month and if you have one to recommend please let us know. I love to cook and bake.
So this year I am going to be doing some freezer meal storage so I will be doing a lot of slow cooker, casserole meals and anything I can make ahead and freeze for easier meal time. So I hope you all enjoy these recipes I am going to do this year.
Now that it is Summer I am going to do recipes for summer. We go camping a lot during the summer so I will be doing food for camping. Here is our first camping recipe and we use this recipe for our fast breakfasts.
Omelette in a Bag
We like to assemble our omelette and freeze them so they stay fresh longer when we are going to be camping for a few days to a week, so I am going to go threw that part with you as well.
Things you will need:
- Bags- the food saver bags are best but you can use thick sandwich size bags that are BPA free.
- Vaccuum sealer (optional)
- Eggs useally 2 per bag
- Meat and/or veggies of your choice
- cook pot
- seasonings of your chioce
- Cheese (optional)
- tortillas or toast (optional)
- marker for labeling bags
We will be using a vacuum sealer and food-saver vacuum seal bags. So we have to prepare that first. Then I label the bags for everyone. KayKay don’t eat them so I don’t need to make any for her she will eat mini muffins. We will be gone for 4 days on our first trip this year but the first day we will eat before we leave so I need to make enough for each person for our whole trip. That is 3 bags per person a total of 6 bags.
Now prep everything. If you need to chop any items or pre cook anything.
Here is what we will have in our omelettes.
- shredded cheese (mexican mix)
- pepper (for Dad)
- tomato (for Mom)
Now that we have everything ready to go lets start assembly. If you want you can do the first step in a cup then pour in the bag. If you do skip step 2.
- Take 2 eggs for each bag and about a half teaspoon to a whole teaspoon of milk, and seasoning of choice to taste.
- Close the bag and mush it around and shack it until it looks mixed up.
- Now open the bag back up and add in your other ingredients.
- Next mix it around a little like in step 2.
- Reopen the bag and push all the air out and reseal or use a vacuum sealer.
The next thing is to freeze them if you want and that is what we are going to do. We will freeze over night and then place them in our cooler in order of eating them along with any other food we are taking. After we get to the campsite we will have the rest of our food for that day then. So when we get up the next morning we can go and take out the first set of omelettes and cook them. If you don’t freeze them go ahead and cook. Here is how we do that.
- Get our cook pot and put water in it and bring to a simmer. Make sure it doesn’t get hot enough to boil this can melt your bags even if they are food-saver bags.
- place the bags you are cooking in the water let them cook for a few mins and move them around so that all sides can cook.
- They should be done in around 5 to 10 minutes if thawed but if frozen this may take longer and you will know when they are done because they will no longer be runny.
- Now you can take them out of the water let them cool for about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Then you can either dump it out in a tortilla and have a boritto or just dump onto a plate and eat and you are done.
!!Enjoy your breakfast!!
I hope you like this and let us know if you try it or have tried it before.
