Melt the butter and brown the potato slices. Beat the eggs together and season. Mix the cheese with the eggs. Pour into the pan over the potatoes and cook like a pancake, turning it over as soon as it is browned on one side.
La Cuisinière républicaine, published 1793, was the first French cookery book written by a woman, Mme Merigot. It was devoted entirely to the potato.
