 I was webbing the surf the other day
and came across an intriguing idea -
I've made chocolate cake in a mug,
so you know I must try this.
The basic recipe called for two eggs
 and whatever fillings you wanted.
You mushed up the eggs in a plastic bag,
added in whatever fillings,
then pushed the air out and sealed the bag.
This went into boiling water for 13 minutes.

 Here's my version:
2 egg yolks
4 egg whites
Remember, Mr. H. hasn't been eating yolks.
He's just starting to come around.
I offered a little bit of diced ham,
some chopped onion,
a little chopped red pepper,
some chopped tomato,
A little diced cheddar and Mozzarella.
And there's some Thai basil in there.

First, I whupped my whites to a light lather
and then beat in the yolks,
one at a time,
gayly whipping away.

 Add in the fillings.

 And whoop.

 Pour into plastic bag.

 Remove air and seal.

Place bag in boiling water.

 I poked at the bag a few times,
turning it.

 I let this go for 15 minutes.

 I must say,
I liked it.
 Plus it's different and it's fun.
It's a package.

If you have children you want to involve
in a cooking project,
this is a great way to start.
This way anybody can pick and choose
their omelet ingredients.
And everybody's happy.

 This was, indeed, a happy meal.

Did that last year after seeing somebody do it on a cooking show.'Twas interesting indeed.

Hm; I just might have to try that some time soon.

Seems like it would be soggy or mushy. But if you say it was as good as pan cooked, maybe we'll try it. I like crispy cooked edges.

Anonymouse, it was neither soggy nor mushy. It was ... interesting. It is ... different. I like the fact that you can put out a Lazy Susan of accoutrements and everyone can pick and choose their additions to their personal omelet.

I whupped up my whites. And I had 2:1 whites to yolks.

If you like the crisply cooked edges, I suggest you slide the boiled-in-a-bag-omelet into a hot pan o'sizzlin' buttah. That works for me. Ooooooohhhh. I just got me the warm and fuzzles!
