 This recipe is from the classic cookbook titled Minnie Pearl Cooks (Minnie Pearl, Nicholstone Bookbindery, 1970).

Minnie Pearl was a country comedienne who was famous for her appearances at the Grand Ole Opry and on the TV show Hee Haw. Minnie's actual name was Sarah Ophelia Colley Cannon.

Her cook book is chuck-full of good county cookin' recipes which includes a nice variety of breakfast dishes.

This is a unique strawberries and cream omelet. As Minnie Pearl says in the says in the preface to her cookbook, "Think of me when you prepare them... and have fun. Imagine I am there with you saying, 'Howdeeee! I'm jest so proud to be here!'"

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.

People who eat a lot of savory omelets will probably find it weird to have fruit filling, but it's really good and tastes like a mix between a dessert and a pancake.
