    I made this for camping & it was a huge hit! You can make them ahead of time & label the ziploc with each persons name, that way everyone can have control over their own ingredients. They aren't runny or rubbery & the bag only melts if hit by a flame directly. Enjoy! - 9/12/07

    Instead of using freezer / storage bags, you can use the Seal A Meal or Foodsaver bags - seal a strip across the bottom of the roll to make a bag, add your eggs and fillings, then seal the top without suctioning to make a boil-safe bag. - 2/10/08

    This is my favorite way to cook eggs for a large group. We did it for a retreat last fall, and everyone loved it. If I'm only eating eggs this way once or twice a year, I'm not too worried about the rumored problems with cooking in plastic bags. - 9/15/07

    People use plastic bags to bake their turkeys in during Thanksgiving. Plastic bottles are used every day for baby formula. Here is a link to a site that answers some questions about concerns about cooking with plastics. http://www.jhsph.edu/publichealthnews/arti

    Put my ingredients in the bag, then the eggs, then mushed, then into a small frying pan (what I use when camping) and pushed it around....wondered "how the heck am I going to know when they're done?" and then - so KEWL! They just start peeling away from the bag! Buddies will be envious at camp! - 9/1/07
