Cook together two level teaspoonfuls of cornstarch and one-half cup of milk. Cook until it ceases to taste raw, then season with salt and pepper. Break two eggs, and when the sauce is cooled sufficiently to not cook the eggs, stir the sauce and eggs together, but do not beat, except just enough to mix well. Rub the omelet pan well with dry salt to make smooth, then wipe the salt all out, and grease well. Pour the egg mixture into it, and set on range, and as it cooks lift from the bottom with a fork to let raw egg run down and keep top smooth. When cooked sufficiently, turn the side next the handle toward the opposite side, making a turnover of the omelet. See that it is loose on the bottom and sides. Take the omelet pan in the right hand and the plate in the left, and turn omelet on the plate. When the egg mixture is poured into the pan it should be not less than one-half inch thick. If flour is used instead of cornstarch take twice as much.
