Make an Omelette in a plastic bag


A Large Egg, Grated Cheese, Sliced Mushrooms, a zipper sandwich bag.


1. Put a pan of water on to boil.
2. Crack the egg into the bag (perhaps line a mug with the bag if the Cubs/Scoutsare a bit clumsy). 3. Close the bag and shake it around to beat the egg.
4. Mop up the mess caused by the Cub/Scout who was extra-clumsy.
5. Add the cheese and mushrooms to taste and reseal the bag, trying to squeeze out all of the air. 6. Pop the bag into the boiling water for five minutes... the bag will inflate but shouldn’t burst. 7. Remove carefully and tip onto a plate.
