Carol Mead of Los Alamos, New Mexico suggests this slightly sweet omelet treat. "It's definitely worth the extra time it takes to fix," Carol comments.

Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced and sweetened
  • Whipped cream

Directions

  1. In a bowl, beat egg whites with salt until stiff peaks form; set aside. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks, sugar, flour, lemon zest and vanilla until smooth. Fold in egg whites. In a 10-in. ovenproof skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add egg mixture. Cook without stirring for 6-7 minutes or until bottom is golden brown. Remove from the heat. Broil 4 in. from the heat for 1 minute or just until top is golden (watch carefully). Fold omelet in half; transfer to a serving platter. Top with strawberries and whipped cream.
