  1. Cut a 1/4″ hole in the top corner of the bag to allow steam to escape.
  2. If thawed: Microwave on high for 3 to 5 minutes watching constantly.
  3. If frozen: Microwave on 50% power for 5 – 7 minutes.
  4. If the bag swells, stop the microwave and shake the bag to mix the ingredients.
    Bag without hole. About to pop.
  5. When most of the liquid is gone from the bottom of the bag, the omelette is done.
  6. Carefully remove the omelette from the bag.  The steam from the bag will burn your skin.
