Three's-a-Crowd Omelet


1-1/2 cups medium cream sauce, seasoned with salt and white pepper
4 tablespoons butter
4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
1 bunch scallions, chopped
2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill, or 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
3 tablespoons cottage cheese
2 tablespoons sour cream
juice of half a lemon
fresh parsley, chopped
5 eggs, beaten
1 avocado, peeled and cut into slices lengthwise
1 to 2 tablespoons white wine


Prepare cream sauce and set aside. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in heavy skillet and saute mushrooms and scallions over high heat, stirring constantly. Add dill, cottage cheese, and sour cream, and stir together until cheese melts. Add ¾ cup cream sauce and lemon juice, and cook until mixture thickens slightly. Add about a tablespoon of fresh parsley. Set mixture aside and keep warm. In ovenproof iron skillet, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Beat eggs and ½ cup cream sauce together, and pour into pan. Do not stir. Keep eggs on burner for a couple of minutes, until bottom begins to set, then put into preheated 400 degree F oven and bake until puffed and golden brown. Remove from oven and place mushroom mixture on half of omelet. Arrange avocado slices on top and fold omelet, then transfer to a platter if desired. Thin remaining cream sauce with white wine and pour over omelet. Garnish with chopped parsley.
