Beat the yolks of four eggs, just a little, with a silver
spoon; for each egg add a tablespoon of cream; season lightly
with salt and pepper; stir in the whites of the eggs, beaten
less than for cake. Have the omelet pan clean, smooth and hot.
Put in a generous tablespoon of butter, and just as soon as it
melts (be careful not to scorch it), turn in the mixture and
at once begin to shake the pan with regular motion. While the
top is still soft and creamy set the pan in the baker (which
should be hot) and remove when the omelet is golden brown.
Roll out into a hot platter and serve at once. Garnish with
parsley sprigs.--Miss Callie Lumpkin King, Marion

One pint of milk;
half a pint of Indian meal; four eggs; a scant tablespoonful
of butter; salt; and one teaspoonful of sugar. Pour the milk
boiling on the sifted meal. When cold, add the butter
(melted), the salt, the sugar, the yolks of the eggs, and,
lastly, the whites, well beaten. Bake half an hour in a hot
oven. It is very nice baked in iron or tin gem pans, the cups
an inch and a half deep.
