4 1/2 tablespoons butter
4 Eggs, separated
Prepare a white sauce of first five ingredients. Beat egg yolks and stir into one cup of the white sauce; carefully fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. Melt one table spoon butter in skillet; add the omelette mixture, and cook over very low flame on top of stove until omelette begins to set (6 to 8 minutes) ; then put into a moderate oven (3500 F.) to finish cooking and to brown slightly on top. Add peas to remaining white sauce ; while hot, spread over half of omelette, fold, slide onto hot platter and garnish with tomatoes and watercress.
Spanish: Substitute tomatoes and onions for the peas.
Yield: 6 servings.
