I was going to blog something else today, but I received a call last night from a friend of over 50 (yikes!) years. His Mom just passed away from a massive stroke. She was a tough old Swede and went out fighting for sure. They were our next door neighbors in Massachusetts for many years. Anyway, I often make her recipe for omelet and will do so this morning for my Thurston House guests – lucky them!
4 eggs, 3/4C flour, 2C milk or 1/2+1/2, various meats, various veggies, shredded cheese
Spray a 10″ cast iron pan with PAM. Sprinkle a variety of cubed meat and/or veggies on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle shredded cheese over, to taste. Whisk the eggs, then the flour; whisk until well blended. Add the milk and whisk until blended. Pour over the other mix. Bake 400 degrees for 30 minutes, or until puffed and slightly browned. Best right out of the oven. ENJOY! I better get going in the kitchen now….
