Recipe: No Mess Bag-o-Omelet

foodMmm It’s time for another delicious recipe.  This time, we’re going to tackle a breakfast favorite – the omelet!

Making omelets can be a messy task, and most of us hate scrubbing pans while we are camping.  Well, today’s recipe offers up an alternative to cooking omelets in a frying pan.  We’re going to boil them in Ziploc sandwich bags to keep the mess under wraps.
