Anatole’s instructions:

  • Place skillet over medium flame and add desired amount of butter and melt evenly.
  • Add ham and fry to desired taste.
  • While ham is cooking, beat eggs with salt, pepper, and other desired spices.

  • Fold omelette in half and be sure both sides are thoroughly cooked.
