C&o Railroad Jelly Omelette

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by SnowHat

A recipe from the dining cars of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad from the 1950's "Use the jam or jelly of your choice!" ***Do not salt eggs before or during cooking. Salt can cause the eggs to become tough tough during cooking, so for best results salt eggs (if desired) only after cooking.
