Easy no flip omelet (video)

It’s sometimes a challenge to get my boys interested in breakfast, but this easy no flip omelet is something they always get excited about.  And I’m always excited when they can take over the cooking!

an easy no flip omelet!


It seems like I post about breakfast a lot, but I truly think a good breakfast sets us up for a good day.  I also think that eggs are the perfect way to start because they provide not only protein, but also a good dose of omegas that help to kick start the brain. The challenge with breakfast in my house is that all four of my boys usually want something different and they would rather do a million other things than pause to eat.  However, this easy no flip omelet is actually a fun activity for them (complete with throwing things and jumping around!) And they can make their easy omelet with whatever ingredients they individually prefer, so everyone ends up happy.


Another reason I love this omelet is because it’s pretty much the only way I can make one (shhhh)!  I’ve never mastered the omelet fold and now with this easy no flip omelet I don’t have to! ha! Check out the below video of my boys making these omelets to see just how easy it is!



This would also be a great breakfast option for over the holidays when you may have guests staying with you.  Just add ingredients to the individual bags for each omelet and plop them all in a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes.  This is basically a sous vide method of cooking (cooking food in a pouch in a water bath), but just be sure that the plastic bags you use don’t have bpa’s or dioxin.  Ziplock bags are a good choice!

  1. another genius move – will try this out this week. Plus, I HATE cleaning egg off of pans. Have never figured out how to do that without serious scrubbing.
