Omelette

Recently, whilst visiting Paris, I was reminded that a fluffy omelette is an excellent and easy light lunch or dinner dish. Simple to make, I use three eggs and a tablespoon of hot water .

Omelettes are reportedly French in origin and certainly the ones we ate in various cafes in Paris were superior to any that I have tasted in Canada, the US and England. However using the hot water trick the omelettes I prepare at home are pretty darn good.

For history of the omelette see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omelette
