Recipe From Michele’s 8th Grade Home Ec Class

Author’s Note:  I made this recipe back in 8th grade Home Economics class.  There are several recipes from that class in my recipe box.  I will share some of them with you throughout the summer providing I can decipher my writing.  Boy was it awful!  I do not know how my teachers read my homework assignments 😉

French Omelet


3 eggs, 3 tablespoons oil, dash of salt,  1/4 teaspoon parsley, 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese


Beat eggs and salt until fluffy.

Heat oil in skillet over low heat.

Pour egg mixture into skillet  As the under surface becomes set, start lifting it carefully with spatula.

Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon parsley and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese as soon as all of mixture is set.

Fold and serve immediately.

Not sure why parsley and Parmesan cheese make this a “French” omelet.  All I know is what the teacher told us. Since she was the teacher she knew what she was talking about.

The Food Network’s French Omelet recipe does not call for parsley or Parmesan cheese.

  1. Sounds good, but what’s the “butter” for in the ingredient list? Didn’t see what to do with that in the instructions – and I LOVE butter. 🙂
