Write a review
  1. 4 eggs
  2. 5 Tbsp sugar
  3. Pinch of salt
  4. 2 organic oranges
  5. 2 T butter
  1. Grate the rind of one orange on one tablespoonful of sugar. Pare and cut the orange in thin slices and sprinkle with two tablespoonfuls of sugar.
  2. Beat the whites of the eggs stiff, add the sugar and orange rind, salt, beaten yolks, and two tablespoonfuls of orange juice.
  3. Put butter in a hot omelet pan and pour in the mixture. When it begins to thicken well, spread over the sliced oranges (no juice).
  4. Fold omelet from the side of the pan over the sliced oranges, turn out on a hot dish.
  5. Put in the oven for two minutes. Serve immediately.
  1. At one time, cookbooks were infamous for not telling the cook how long or how hot or how to particularly cook the dish. If you've cooked an omelet before, this should feel familiar.
