Irish Omelette No 106

I haven’t bought eggs for quite sometime. Being vegan I tend to choose eggless wartime recipes or adapt others.

But the children quite like many of my wartime recipes too, so for a special treat (for them), I bought eggs and made an “Irish Omelette” for my youngest daughter Emily and it gave me great pleasure, to observe her noticing the delicious smell, radiating from the oven, as she walked into the house after school..

It was a really simple recipe and smelt delicious, she said it tasted good too ( of course I couldn’t taste it having eggs, milk and bacon in it) and she came back for seconds and there are leftovers for tomorrow.
