Microwave steam bag cooking

We've recently discovered microwave steam bag cooking! I've been steaming vegetables for the kids and they love it. They don't care for cooked vegetables but they really like them steamed.

The steam bag container had a couple of recipes. I think I'll try this omelet one:

Ham and Cheese Omelet

2 eggs
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup diced baked ham

Break eggs into the bottom of a microwave steaming bag. Add remaining ingredients. Stir with a fork, being careful not to pierce the bag. Add salt and pepper if desired. Seal the bag and microwave on high power for about two minutes. Allow bag to stand 30 seconds before opening.

When I try this I'm pretty sure I'll do all my mixing in a cup and then pour the prepared mixture into the bag instead of trying to stir with a fork inside the bag. As expensive as the bags are (I just paid $3.55 or something like that for a box of 10!!!) I'll probably just do this once. I need to save the bags for veggies. The girls eat eggs fixed any kind of way, plus you can just pour your eggs into a bowl and microwave them.

Try some more microwave steam bag recipes!

I like using the steam bags too, so easy and little clean up.
