Ova spongia ex lacte
Eggs with honey
For those of you honing your Latin translation skills, here's the recipe in Latin from Apicius' De Re Coquineria:
Ova spongia ex lacte: ova quattuor, lactis heminam, olei unciam in se dissolvis, ita ut unum corpus facias. in patellam subtilem adicies olei modicum, facies ut bulliat, et adicies impensam quam parasti. una parte cum fuerit coctum, in disco vertes, melle perfundis, piper adspargis et inferes.
3 tbsp honey
4 T milk
1 T butter
1 tbsp olive oil
Twist of black pepper
Salt to taste
Beat together the eggs, milk and oil. Pour a little olive oil along with butter into a frying pan and heat. When this is sizzling add the omelette mixture. Agitate with a fork until the mix starts to solidify (this will make for a lighter omelette). When thoroughly cooked on one side turn the omelette over and cook on the other side. Fold in half and turn out onto a plate.Warm the honey and pour over the omelette. Fold this over once more and cut into thick slices. Sprinkle with salt an black pepper.
