Hangtown Omelet (Modern)

(1 serving)

  • 3 slices smoked bacon
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup quartered white mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons green onion tops
  • 1 fresh bay leaf
  • 4 bay sized oysters
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon cream
  • 1 Tablespoon oyster liquor
  • 1 Tablespoon white wine
  • salt and pepper - to taste
Saute bacon until crisp then remove from pan and set aside -- reserve one tablespoon of the bacon fat in the pan.

Saute onion tops, bay leaf and oysters until tender. Remove bay leaf.

In a medium bowl, beat together the eggs, cream, liquor, and wine with salt and pepper.

Add egg mixture to oyster mix in a heated, non stick pan over low heat and cover with a tight fitting lid.

Cook slowly like an open-faced Asian omelet until egg is set on top.
