  1. Fill a pot two-thirds full of water and place it on high heat on the stove until it boils.
  2. Combine the eggs, peppers, cheese, and seasonings to a freezer bag. Remove all of the air from the bag, and zip it tight.
  3. Add the bag to the boiling water, and set the timer for 13 minutes.
  4. Keep an eye on the bag throughout the cooking time, and be sure to keep the bag in the water the entire time.
  5. After 13 minutes, carefully remove the bag from the boiling water. Be cautious of steam when opening the bag. The omelet should slide right out onto your plate.
  6. Top with salsa or avocado and enjoy!
  7. Low-Fat Option: Use 8 egg whites or 1 cup liquid egg whites in place of the eggs. You could try more, but truth be told, I have only tried this recipe with up to four whole eggs or 1 cup of whites. Adding much more of either type of egg may overwhelm the bag and ruin the entire meal.
