Here's an idea!

It came in an e-mail from a friend.
Now she's a cook ... a very, very good cook.  So I didn't dismiss the thought as completely daft ... and decided that "maybe" I'd try it some day.
Yesterday was the day.
First ... Eliot had a pre-breakfast walk.  Glorious morning in the park and it was good to be out and about after all the rain that there's been.
Sunday's rain for example ... a dull and very grey afternoon.
Ah ... got distracted there ... where was I?  In Musgrave Park with Eliot!
 He's always eager to walk ... and this is a particularly pleasant place to be.  Next week it will be the Sir Thomas and Lady Dixon Park for "Rose Week".
Anyhow, to get back to the idea that came in a e-mail ... it was a technique for cooking an omelette without fat of any kind!
Use a ziplock bag ...
If you were doing this for a party or a family gathering then, with a permanent marker, put each person's name on the bag.
Crack in two eggs and swish them about a bit!  Add your favourite omelette ingredients ... I used cooked onion, sweet corn and cheese.  Swish around a little more.
Then zip up the bag, expelling as much air as possible.
Drop the bags into a pot of boiling water and continue with a gentle rolling boil for thirteen minutes.
Then ... eat it!
Well ... you need to snip off the top and roll the contents onto a plate first ... though I suppose you could save washing up by eating it from the bag?
No fat, no salt ... the cheese was salty enough to flavour the omelette ... it's the sort of thing you could make for breakfast while you shower!
 We were rather pleased with them ... served here with saut√© potatoes ... a quick and tasty tea!
Enjoy!  Fun to make and a talking point as well (or a blogging point in this case).

Blessed are you, Sovereign God, King of the nations,
to you be praise and glory for ever!
From the rising of the sun to its setting
your name is proclaimed in all the world.
As the Sun of Righteousness dawns in our hearts,
anoint our lips with the seal of your Spirit
that we may witness to your gospel
and sing your praise in all the world.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit:
blessed be God for ever.

Great idea! Will pass to my son who is into 'body-building' and regularly eats 6 eggs as a snack. I hate the messy pans. MrsMcF
