Zip Lock Omelet

374719_10200572937219333_934684534_nThis works great when you have a group of people together. No one has to wait for their omelet, everyone gets involved in the process and it’s a great conversation piece.

Have guests write their name on a quart-size Ziploc freezer bag with permanent marker.

Crack no more than two eggs (large or x-large) into each bag and shake to combine.

Put out a variety of ingredients such as cheeses, ham, onion, green pepper, tomato, hash browns, salsa, etc as selection.

Each guest adds prepared ingredients of their choice to their bag. Shake, carefully press air out of bag and zip it up.

Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. (We suspect that if you only make fewer at a time you might not need to cook them for that long.)

You can cook 6-8 omelets (bags) in a large pot. For more bags, make another pot of boiling water or cook in shifts.

Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.

Angel Food Cake Lemon Bars SIMPLE

282953_215776358559091_1165966368_n1 box Angel Food Cake mix
1 can of Lemon Pie filling

Mix them together by hand until moist. Be sure not to over stir. Bake in a 9×13 cake pan at 350 degrees until golden brown on the top (about 20 minutes). Cool completely before eating. As they are cooling, you can sprinkle with powder sugar if you wish .They have more of an angel food cake texture than a traditional lemon bar texture. For extra little kick – add shaved chocolate to the top before serving.

I made these for the family last night —- they were gone with me having 1 piece – and that was a corner. urgh

Cheesecake Crescent Rolls

medium.12 cans of Pillsbury Crescent rolls
2 (8oz each) package cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup butter, melted
cinnamon
sugar

Unroll and spread 1 of the cans of crescent rolls on the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish (or 8 x 8 if you want to cut the recipe in half). Combine softened cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and vanilla. Spread over crescent roll layer. Unroll and layer remaining crescent rolls over cream cheese layer. Melt your butter and spread over top of crescent rolls. Sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar.

Bake for 20-30 minutes in 350 degree oven until bubbly and slightly browned. Drizzle with a little honey if you like. Let cool a bit, slice and eat.

ADDITIONAL: Consider adding some fresh fruit puree like strawberries, raspberries etc. For the chocolate lover add chocolate syrup or cut up candy bars or chocolate chips. Think of crushed nuts and caramel? How about a drizzle of maple syrup with a sprinkle of brown sugar? Just add your favorite ingredient before adding the top layer of crescent and bake as directed. Also, the filling can have some food dye placed into it to add a festive design for a special holiday!
