Friar's Omelette is a traditional Scottish recipe for eggs and apples. However, apple can be substituted by other fruit such as rhubarb, plum (with stones removed), or blackberry.

Ingredients edit

Procedure edit

  1. Peel and core the apples, slice them, and place in a saucepan with the water.
  2. Cook until soft (similar to applesauce), then remove from heat and add butter, sugar and lemon juice; mix well.
  3. While this is cooling, beat the eggs very well. When the apple mixture is cool, mix in the eggs as well.
  4. Butter a deep baking dish and spread the breadcrumbs around it so that they stick to the bottom and the sides, keeping a good amount for the top.
  5. Pour the apple and egg mixture into the dish and cover with a thick layer of breadcrumbs.
  6. Bake in a moderate oven (350°F / 180°C / Gas Mark 4) for about half an hour.
  7. Turn out onto a flat dish and sprinkle with sugar before serving.
