This book was one of my husbands grandmothers favorites, so I was thrilled to inherit it. This particular version was published in 1967, the original copyright is 1955. The cover is worn but has beautiful colors and illustrations. The pages are a bit stained from years of use. But, most importantly, the recipes are wonderful. Some I admit I have been reluctant to try; Burgundy Kidney Omelette, and others have become a Saturday morning staple, Sausage Omelette Parisienne. I have yet to try the Souffle Omelette with Strawberries, but it sounds amazing!
The recipe all starts with a good egg. I am fortunate to live on a small hobby farm with 8 hens and 2 roosters. I get the freshest, tastiest eggs!
My version of the recipe includes lots of fresh veggies! I like to use homegrown or organic whenever possible. These came from the garden of a dear friend.

My version of the Sausage Omelette Parisienne:

(Eggs, Sausage, swiss cheese, mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, asparagas, salt & pepper, basil, thyme, parsley)

Saute in butter 1 onion, sliced, and 2-3 mushrooms, sliced. When soft add diced tomato, and blanched asparagas to heat through. Add 6 lightly beaten eggs to form your omelette. Sprinkle with cheese and fresh or dried herbs. Fold it out on the platter and surround it with small broiled sausages.

Variations:

I sometimes use fresh satued spinach in place of the asparagus. Also, I add the cooked sausage directly to the eggs as they cook.
