French Omelette

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.

  • 3Beat the yolks until foamy.
  • 4Fold egg yolks into egg whites until well incorporated.
