Kitchen hack: How to cook an omelette in a bag


Weekend brunch is a brilliant idea. Except when your head is still throbbing from the night before and cooking even an omelette sounds too much.

Never fear, another excellent kitchen hack is here to help you get the sustenance you need.

we’re boiling omelettes in plastic bags.

Sounds insane, but apparently it works a treat.

There’s no messing around with flipping omelettes in pans.

But better yet, there’s not even a pan to wash so you can get back to lying around and watching Netflix in no time at all.

How to do it:

1. Crack two eggs into a re-sealable food bag
