Ziploc Omelets
This works great !!! Good when you're alone or when all your family is together. Best feature is that no one has to wait for their special omelet!!!

Have guests write their name on a quart-size Ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker.

  1. Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the quart size Ziploc bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them.
  2. Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc.
  3. Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shake.
  4. Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.
  5. Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes.
  6. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more, make another pot of boiling water.
  7. Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily.

Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.

Note: Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake; everyone gets involved in the process and a great conversation piece.

Imagine having these ready the night before, and putting the bag in boiling water while you get ready. And in 13 minutes, you have a nice Omelet for a quick breakfast!!!

1 cup sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

Chex Muddy Buddies
This is a wonderful and simple snack, that kids can make. There is no baking required, nor do you have to use a stove. All heating is done in the microwave oven. It's a good way to teach your kids about measuring.

9 cups Chex cerals (Corn, Rice and/or Wheat)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanutbutter
1/4 cup margarine
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar (I generally use more to make sure everything is coated really well)

  1. Pour cereals into a large bowl; set aside.
  2. In a 1-quart microwave-safe bowl combine semi-sweet chocalate chips, peanut butter, and margarine. Microwave on high 1 1-1/2 minutes or until smooth, stirring after 1 minute. Stir in vanilla.
  3. Pour chocolate mixture over cereals, stirring until all pieces are evenly coated. Pour cereal mixture into a large resealable plastic bag with powdered sugar. Seal securely and shake until all pieces are well coated. Spread on waxed paper to cool.
