What food is featured in all Easter celebrations around the world? Yes, eggs. So this dish presents a little joke- eggs on top of eggs, a colorful harbinger of Spring! Tell us about your recipe. —LeBec Fin

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Heat your omelet pan and quickly melt the butter. Use your favorite method for making the omelet with 2 eggs and seasoning. When the inside of the omelet is still a bit wet (the French call that "baveuse"), quickly spread a lengthwise strip of gruyere in the middle, and fold over the top of the omelet to melt the cheese and create a crescent. Slip onto a serving plate. Smear a swoosh of sour cream across the top, lengthwise, and top this with the salmon roe. Serve. * Use a non-metallic spoon (plastic is fine) to scoop the salmon roe, or it will taste metallic. --------------------------------------------------

My eating passions are Japanese, Indian, Mexican; with Italian and French following close behind. Turkish/Arabic/Mediterranean cuisines are my latest culinary fascination. My desert island ABCs are actually 4 Cs: citrus, cumin, cilantro, cardamom, and GARLIC!
