Cheese Omelet

2 eggs

1 tablespoon melted butter or drippings

1/2 teaspoon salt

Few grains cayenne

1 tablespoon grated cheese

Beat eggs slightly; add one-half teaspoonful of melted butter or drippings, salt, cayenne and cheese. Melt remaining butter or drippings in frying-pan, add mixture and cook until firm without stirring. Roll and sprinkle with grated cheese.

Bread Omelet

3 eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 dash of black pepper

1/2 cup of bread crumbs 1/2 cup of milk

Piece of butter or butter substitute, size of walnut

Beat the eggs separately. Add to the yolks the milk, salt, pepper and the bread crumbs. Now stir into this carefully the beaten whites; mix very lightly. Put the butter or butter substitute in a very smooth frying-pan; as soon as hot turn in the mixture gently, and set it over a clear fire, being very careful not to burn; shake occasionally to see that the omelet does not stick. Now stand your frying-pan in the oven for a moment to set the middle of the omelet. When done, toss it over on a warm platter to bring the brown side of the omelet uppermost; or, it may be folded in half and then turned out in the center of the platter. Serve immediately or it will fall.
