"Sheeesh...some people take the fun out of making eggs."

I just read this whole thread... and I was like... COOL! Oooh! Wait... damn that sucks.... OH! Oh. Bad. Damn. That sucks.

All in one thread. About eggs. Seemed like such a good idea too. I was about to give it a try.

the scout leader comments brought back a few memories from when i was a scout leader...
we were on a weekend jamboree and one other leader...a real geek with ab-so-freakin-lutely no survival skills decided to show the scouts how to cook rice without a pot to boil water in or a fire for cooking...first he took a big cardboard box...cut the top off and made a makeshift pot outta tin foil...i think he lined the inside of the box with tin foil too...then he put rice and water in this pot deal...and sealed the top of the box with a coating of saran wrap...(good thing it was a sunny day)...anyway..after about 2 hours he had an almost edible bowl of rice...i am gonna assume this was an attempt to teach the scouts how to be resourceful...(shoulda brought in McGyver instead)...but i got to thinkin...why is a scout gonna be wandering thru the bush with a big cardboard box...a roll of tin foil...a roll of saran wrap and a box of rice?...the scouts were impressed...i was underwhelmed tho

This intrigued me....so I tried it tonite. Works great!

Used a regular cheapo sandwich bag...and added mushrooms and cheese to the eggs. Was too lazy to chop up onions, or break out precooked sausage. I was more interested in seeing if the mushrooms would cook up w/o being sauteed first, and how messy the cheese would be.

Watta killer idea! As advertised...it rolled right out of the bag with absolutely no mess.

Now I'm all set for something different for breakfast when I go on my fishing trips besides having cheetos with a burbon & coke ...and no mess at all!!!!!

Thanks for the teriffic idea hon...

my next experiment will be to mix up a baggie, nuke it, and see how that works.
then come memorial day weekend when i go hit the stream for trout fishing,
i will take some prepared ones, toss em in the cooler, cook em at the campsite.

personally i am not going to worry about the plastic issue raised in this forum.
ive come across a pile of frozen stuff packaged in plastic that one can either nuke
or boil of which ive done both and am still alive....

regards,
manboobs

Ok...here is a question...Can the bagged omelettes be frozen prior? Might seem like a silly question..but I have never tried freezing egg..
Was just thinking that it would be a great way to take them backpack camping.

-edit-
My personal favorite for at home with company is baked eggs in crispy cups. Use a large size muffin tray..grease each hole with butter..form a piece of bread into it...crack an egg into it (or 2 depending on size), then top it with whichever you like, or pour premixed eggs and goodies into it...and bake at 350 for about 12-13 minutes...and you have 12 baked eggs with toast and one pan to clean. Add a bit of salsa and cheese on top of those and you have a really tasty treat!

I'm not sure but I think if you cooked the omlettes first they would be ok to freeze.

Alright, results are in...

I love it! 4 scrambled eggs, frozen fairly flat(thin), and boiled for about 6-8 minutes, turned out to be a great breakfast! Zero difference in the taste, no consistency problems(mixing of whites and yolks though this could change with duration frozen?) and my breasts haven't grown. Sorry ladies, it doesn't work... Weighing in at 6.4oz sans goodies with the eggs, and frozen flat, you can be sure I will be taking some of these on my next backpacking trip!!

Thinking on making a few for breakfast with onion/tomato, and a couple for snack later in the day with possibly some sausage or pepperoni in them...

While I don't usually pack anything that needs to stay cold on overnight backpack trips, these could very well double as cooler packs if space is limited. And finally, best of all...no broken eggs all over when you get to where you are camping!!

There are different kinds of plastics, some of them leech hormone-like chemicals into food, some don't. Water bottles and baby bottles are ones that do and some towns have banned plastic baby bottles.

Of course you won't have a problem doing it once, but consider what happens to somebody that's been sucking on this shit an entire lifetime. It's more than manboobs you have to worry about.

Hey look, I don't give a shit either way. Some people suck back twinkies and soda and chips, so who cares. I just wanted to point out to people that actually care what they eat that this is not without som degree of hazard.


Prolly more to worry about from the cholesterol in the eggs


Two ways to get around this: 1) naturally by eating lots of salmon, flaxseed and olive oil or 2) just take niacinamide (vitamin B1). It says right on the label "for control of cholesterol" and unlike expnsive and potentially dangerous patent medecines, is just a vitamin you need anyway. Eggs are one of the cheapest and most nutririonally complete foods there is.

Thinking that any one thing you eat affects you is somewhat misguided. I have a friend in France who eats bacon and eggs avery day and has red wine with every meal. His health is stupid perfect and his cholesterol is well under the normal safe limit. It's the total of what you eat not just one component of it.

Bread is bad for you and wine and chocolate are good for you. Who knew?

That is the method used in commercial kitchens.
The BC Ferries cook their scrambled eggs that way....in the baggie. Easy way to control the portions and only make what you need.. Easy clean up too.

30 years ago all the hippies believed if you cook in aluminum you'd get Alzheimers. Medical sceience said authotitatively this was absolute bunk and anybody that thought this was a dangerous lunatic.

Today medical science has proved aluminum is a causative factor in Alzheimers and don't recommend cooking in aluminum. Surprise surprise.

The cooking pouches used in commercial kitches are not the same plastic as baggies. They're "safe".

Real restaurants cook scrambled eggs in a stainless or cast iron frypan.

Here's an article from the University of Texas that explains why you shouldn't cook in baggies:

http://www.uthct.edu/fitnessoverforty/episodes/microwavingtidbits/

This doesn't mean baggies are unsafe, they'e fine at room temperatute or colder, but they are not meant to be cooked in unless you think polyvinyl chloride is a member of one of the basic food groups. It's pretty nasty stuff and is the subject of investigations worldwide as a source of allergies in children and certain liver cancers in adults. Vinyl siding and sex toys are made from the is same plastic. The vinyl siding formlation has been changed and people are urged to rip the old suff down.

Just because sombody points this out doesn't mean they eat twinkies. Chocolate, maybe, but unlike twinkies chocolate is good for you.
