the about 2 teaspoons of butter in a seasoned omelet pan over
high heat, tilting the pan to coat the entire surface.

you want to accompany the meal with meat, try Fried Pork Medallions.
For pork medallions, purchase thin cut medallions that are about
1/4" thick. Add about 1 Tablespoon oil (olive, vegetable
or canola) to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle
both sides of medallions with salt or garlic salt and pepper.
When oil is hot, add medallions to the pan fry quickly until browned
on both sides. This should only take about 3-5 minutes per side.
Because these medallions are thin, they will cook quickly and
you just want to get a nice browning on the outside.

brunch. Great fruit choices are:

should be made ahead of time so it has a chance to chill. Easy
to make, this yummy dessert can be made and refrigerated the night
before Mothers Day.
