Top with salsa, sour cream or guacamole. Your choice to get creative.



This would be a great concept for a camping trip too. Have everyone make their omelets before you leave and just pull out the eggs from your cooler in the am.

What a great way to feed a bunch of kids allowing them to add their own ingredients.

Isn’t this just so clever and our family thinks it is the coolest idea and made them two days in a row. My daughter even wondered if you could make this with egg whites which I am sure you can.
