Ever hear about that pricey omelette a few years back for
$1,000 each in NY (Le Parker Meridien hotel)? I remember
hearing about it on the radio and thinking I needed some
stronger coffee. Along with lobster it is filled with 10
ounces of exclusive sevruga caviar! I have to wonder how
many of those were ever eveb ordered? I do love my eggs
prepared so many different ways but for me I'll stick to
a nice garden omelette any day. Today's recipe today for
this FARMERS OMELETTE CASSEROLE is a real feast but will
not drain your pocketbook!

Enjoy! Marzee

EGG-CETERA...FROM THE GUINESS BOOK OF WORLD RECORDS:

LARGEST OMELETTE
The world’s largest omelet was made with 160,000 eggs,
and had an area of 128.5 sq m (1,383 sq ft). It was
whisked up by representatives of Swatch, in Yokohama,
Japan, on March 19, 1994.

LARGEST COOKED BREAKFAST
The Cowboy Breakfast Foundation organized a cooked
breakfast for 18,941 people at the Central Park Mall,
San Antonio, Texas, USA on January 26, 2001. The annual
Cowboy Breakfast is handed out free and includes eggs,
milk, tacos, sausage, coffee, fruit, and juices. More
than 500 volunteers take part in preparing the event.
The organisers expect to serve up to 60,000 people over
the course of the morning but the count given for this
record is taken over just a one-hour period.

MOST EXPENSIVE MEAL
On July 5th, 2001 six diners at Petrus, London, UK spent
($62,138) on one meal. The bill consisted mainly of five
bottles of wine as, once the bill had been added up, the
($424) charge for food was taken off. The most expensive
bottle was a 1947 Chateau Petrus vintage claret worth
($17,368), followed by the slightly cheaper 1945 Chateau
Petrus at ($16,379). A 1946 Chateau Petrus cost ($13,273)
apparently due to this being a poor year. A 1900 Chateau
d'Yquem dessert wine cost ($12,990) and 1982 bottle of
Montrachet was a snip at ($1,977). The remaining ($151)
consisted of water, a fruit juice, cigarettes and six
glasses of champagne.
