Many years ago my father was in World War II.  During his travels he
ended up in Mont St. Michel.  For all of my life, my father has spoken
of a place on the top of a hill where he had the best breakfast in his
life.   He often describes this woman who was able to "spin eggs into
a mountain."
A few years ago, my parents ran into some one who also had been to
Mont St. Michel.  He also remembered the "egg mountain."
My sisters and I have tried in vein over the years to attempt to find
the recipe and the "trick" she used to make this mountain out of a
single egg.
I would love to surprise my dad with this culinary extravaganza. I
hope you can help with finding the recipe to the "Egg Mountain."

What your father remembers is certainly the famous "omelette souflée"
at the restaurant Mère Poulard on Mont-Saint-Michel. It is famous for
being puffed up to extraordinary height.

The problem is that the recipe is, for obvious reasons, kept a secret
by the restaurant (a bit like the original formula for Coca Cola).
Several versions of this recipe can be found on the Web, but none is
guaranteed to be authentic.

Would you nevertheless like to get one or two of these quite similar
recipes as an answer?
