Camping and Cooking

Camping season is almost upon us. Mark has popped up the camper and is getting it all ready for our first camping trip of the season next weekend. Some people like that new car smell, but personally, I prefer that new camper smell. It brings back memories of fun-filled weekends hiking and enjoying the great outdoors.

Thanks to our friend Kevin Kopp, we have a neat new breakfast recipe we are excited to try out. It's called Ziplock Omelet and will be perfect for the kids. It's fun, easy, gets them involved in the cooking and the best part - no mess.

Have everyone write their name on a quart-size Ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker. Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them. Put out a variety of ingredients such as: cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc. Each person adds prepared ingredients of choice to their 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 13-15 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more, make another pot of boiling water. Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily.

Doesn't this look delicious?
