Great BrunchTrick

I am planning to cater a brunch for 20 people and I was looking through my files for ideas when I came across something fun for all. This little recipe works like a charm and gets everyone involved.
Have your guests write their name on a quart size Ziploc freezer bag with a permanent marker.
Crack 2 eggs (large or extra-large) into the bag (not more than 2) shake to combine them, or use a whisk in a bowl before placing them in bag.,
Put out a variety of ingredients such as ham, sausage (pre-cooked), cheeses, onions, green peppers, tomatoes, hash browns, salsa, etc.
Each guest adds prepared ingredients of choice to their bag and shake.
Make sure to get the air out of the bag and zip it up.
Place the bags into rolling, boiling water for exactly 13 minutes. You can usually cook 6-8 omelets in a large pot. For more, make another pot of boiling water.
Open the bags and the omelet will roll out easily. Be prepared for everyone to be amazed.
Nice to serve with fresh fruit and coffee cake; everyone gets involved in the process and a great conversation piece.
To make it a bit easier I plan on beating eggs up ahead of time and will add eggs to each bag with a ladle. I have a small ladle that is about equal to 1 egg.
The ingredients will add a nice colorful touch to the buffet I will set up.
