This is a long forgotten recipe. I learned to make this back in the 60s while living in San Pedro, California. I lived in this small beautiful hilly Seaside town over looking the Los Angeles harbour and the Pacific ocean. From my tiny apartment, perched high on a hill, I could see the harbour & all the Mountains surrounding Los Angeles. During the winter time I could see the snow capped mountains of Los Angeles, San Gabriel & San Bernardino while I sat in 70 degree weather. It was a short walk up the hill to the old Lighthouse which over looks the Pacific ocean & out to Catalina.

    I loved making this with a chopped onion that had been browned well, before making the omelette. I poured the eggs on top of the onions and cooked. Then I covered in Hollandaise sauce. You can use any ingredients you want.
