Oven omelette

Oven omelette
For this omelette with a difference, we'll fry sliced potatoes, bacon (lardons) and onions, then pour the beaten eggs over and finish cooking everything together in the oven.

The French sometimes call this an "Omelette of Moyenmoutier" after a village in the Vosges.

Dipping bread with cheese
In France, "pain trempette" (dipping bread) is a loaf made to be broken easily into bite-sized morsels, perfect for serving with any dip. The dough is fairly soft and I have added shallots and fried bacon bits. The dip shown here is a hot box Mont d'Or, but there are plenty of other possibilities.
