Whether you're basking in the wild outdoors or enjoying the comforts of home, an omelette is often just what you need to feel those weekend vibes. Omelets can sometimes be a challenge to make, though, and stasher makes it easier!
Friends of ours took stasher on the road, and they're proof that if you can make a stasher omelette with your camp cooking gear, you can definitely do it at home. All you need is a plastic-free reusable stasher bag, a pot of boiling water, some eggs (obvi), and whatever additional omelette ingredients your stomach desires!
Let's do this!
How to Make an Omelette in a Stasher Bag
- Fill a stock pot half way with water and bring to a boil.
- Grab a clean stasher bag. These guys were able to fit a 3-egg omelette in a snack size, but you could do the same with a sandwich size.
- Add a half-teaspoon of cooking oil or softened butter to your stasher to coat the inside. (In the photo above, our friend is pushing butter around the inside of the bag with his hands.) This will ensure that the omelette slides out nicely at the end.
- Crack 2 or 3 eggs into your stasher-- no need to whisk first.
- Add whatever accoutrements you like, such as meat, vegetables, salt and pepper. These guys went with onions and peppers. (We recommend waiting to add cheese until the end and sprinkling it on top because melted cheese can stick to the inside of the bag.)
- Squeeze most of the air out of the bag and seal it tightly. Then, use your hands to smoosh the mixture, breaking the yolks and mixing the eggs with your other ingredients.
- Drop your stasher into your pot of boiling water and let it cook for 12-15 minutes.
- Carefully remove the bag from the boiling water. It's best to use tongs or an oven mitt as the stasher will be hot. Set aside and let it cool for a minute or so.
- Open your stasher and let the omelette slide out onto a plate. (Or eat it right out of the bag with a spoon.)
- Sprinkle with shredded cheese (and hot sauce if you like).
