Orange Omelette for Harlots and Ruffians

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Millereg

This is a medieval recipe. The original instructions (translated from the medieval language) read as follows: "How to make an orange omelette: Take eggs and break them, with oranges, as many as you like; squeeze their juice and add to it the eggs with sugar; then take fat, and heat it in the pan and add the eggs. This is for ruffians and brazen harlots."

Well, I can see why they titled it that way. Try to get at the orange omelette I just made, you'll SEE ruffian!!! Very good!


  1. Juice the oranges and the lemon.
  2. Beat the eggs, add the juice, the sugar, and salt to taste, and cook the omelette in olive oil.
  3. Serve warm.
