Slimming World quick Omelette in a bag

This is a brilliant little ‘life hack’ for when you don’t have time to clean up a pan afterwards!
The video below is from AllRecipes and is very simple to follow. We haven’t tried yet, but can’t wait until breakfast time to have a go!
Better still, we’ve adapted the recipe below to keep it Slimming World friendly – you can enjoy this Syn Free (add 6 Syns if not counting the reduced fat cheddar cheese as a Healthy Extra A).


Slimming World Omelette in a bag

All you need are your favourite omelette ingredients, a freezer bag and boiling water!


Recommended Ingredients

The ingredients below would be recommended ‘swops’ from the items in the American video below.

  • 35g reduced fat cheddar (Healthy Extra A Choice)
  • Lean cooked ham
  • Chopped onion
  • Chopped tomato
  • Chopped pepper
  • Chopped mushroom


  1. Break the eggs into the freezer bag and then gently mix together
  2. Add the remaining ingredients
  3. Seal the bag (removing any extra air) and gently mix everything together
  4. Place in boiling water for 13 minutes, or until fully cooked


With this method, the video mentions two great time-saving ideas – you could make up more than one at the same time (keep in the fridge until tomorrow?) or even cook more than one at the same time.

We’ll have a try later, but it looks pretty good, what do you think?
