One of my favorite uses for the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker is to cook eggs. Why? This method takes longer, of course, than typical stovetop methods, but the result is unfailingly perfect. Plus, if you love hosting brunch, sous vide eggs make things even easier. This recipe for sous vide omelets is simple to put together and easy to scale up for a crowd. (Just use a separate bag for each omelet.) Even better — the omelets are ultra tender and can be packed with tons of flavor.
