|Beat eggs slightly, add milk, salt, and pepper. Melt shortening in skillet or omelet pan, then pour in egg mixture. As it cooks, rather slowly, lift edges toward center to let uncooked part run down. When of creamy consistency and browned on edges and under side, place in moderate oven or under broiler to cook top.|
On one half lay sardines that have been heated in their own oil, then drained. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Turn other half of omelet over sardines and place on hot platter. Garnish with cucumber slices.
