Omelette with Apple Sauce

This recipe is from the Bohemian-American Cook Book.  The cook book was my grandma's.  It's got a lot of interesting recipes.  I thought this one sounded interesting and I had the ingredients on hand.  Most of the recipes call for a "healthy" portion of butter or lard which I'll be reducing, substituting or omitting all together.  The names of the recipes are also in Czech which I found pretty cool.  My grandpa taught me some Czech many many years ago.. one of the pharses he taught me was: Hezká holka dej mi pusu.  Which means: Pretty girl give me a kiss.  Anyway back to the recipe...

Plain Omelette No. 1

Beat with a fork four eggs, add four tablespoons of cold water (one tablespoon to each egg), salt and pepper, and if you like, add minced parsley or chives.  Heat a teaspoon of butter in the skillet, pour the beaten eggs into it and bake rather slowly, occasionally lifting up the edges with a knife, so the liquid runs into the bottom of the pan.  When thoroughly set, roll one end over the other and serve on a hot plate.

Omelette with Apple Sauce

Make a plain omelette (see recipe above).  Butter the skillet, place in it one omelette, spread an inch thick with apple sauce or apple butter, place it on the other omelette.  Beat one white, add to it a tablespoon of sugar, half an ounce of blanched almonds cut into strips and a dash of minced lemon rind.  Spread the top of the omelette with this and let it brown in the oven.
