Apple Flame Omelette

(1 serving)

  • 2 medium apples
  • 1 Tablespoon rum or lemon juice
  • 4 Tablespoons fine granulated sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons cold water
Peel and core apples and slice paper-thin (the thinness of the apples is important as they barely cook).

Add the rum or lemon juice and sugar. Mix well and let stand until ready to use.

Beat eggs with the sugar and cold water, then add the apple mixture. Cook according to directions, fold and serve.

To flame the omelette, sprinkle top with 2 tablespoons of sugar and pour 3 or 4 tablespoons of hot rum over it.

Set the rum afire and keep pouring it over the flaming omelette until the fire dies out.

Can you handle the excitement of an actual flaming omelette? Home-cooking need never be boring.
