- 2 large apples
- 1/4c sweet butter or margarine
- 1/4c brown sugar
- 1t ground cinnamon
- 4 large eggs
- 1/4c sugar
- 1/4t cream of tartar
- 1T confectioners' sugar
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Peel, core and thinly slice apples. Heat butter/margarine in a medium-size skillet and saute the apple slices for 5 minutes over low heat. Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over apples. Toss and continue to saute apples for about 10 minutes, until the brown sugar caramelizes. The mixture will be thick and syrupy. Spoon mixture into an 8 x 8-inch baking dish and keep it hot in the oven.
- Separate the eggs. Whisk yokes and granulated sugar in a small bowl until fairly thick. In a large bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff and shiny. Fold egg whites into yolk mixture, a third at a time. Pour egg mixture over the apples and bake for 8-10 minutes. The omelet will be puffed and golden. Remove from the oven and dust with confectioners' sugar. Serve immediately.
