    SusanRW's Note:

    This is an easy and fun way to make omelets. Everyone can have exactally what their tastebuds desire in their omelet. We added other ingredients such as ham and cheese. You don't have to use these specific ingredients. Be creative and add whatever you would like to your omelet. My mother-in-law sent it to me to try and it is a family favorite.

      There's quite a bit of info available on the internet about the possible dangers of this cooking method since plastic leaches chemicals at high heat levels, and these bags were not made for boiling. Even the manufacturer cautions against it. Just do a google search for "bag omelet leach." I am no expert myself, but I hope the readers will do a little research and make an informed decision for themselves.

      The Ziploc company, SC Johnson, does not reccomend this cooking technique using thier products. Please research this cooking style prior to using to make an informed decision.

      Polyphenols are naturally occurring anti-oxidants typically found in all plants and are generally regarded as extremely healthful and thought to decrease the risk of many cancers. It is sometimes so humorous when those of the public with virtually no chemical training seem to think anything with a chemical name is automatically harmful. That, and the fact there are virtually NO polyphenols present in polyethylene bags. Don't jump from the frying pan into the fire!
