In WW2, eggs were rationed and people in the towns and cities used reconstituted or dried egg mix in tins. The mix was made from whole eggs, non-fat milk, vegetable oil and salt. The mix was used to make scrambled eggs and omelettes, French toast and also used in place of fresh eggs in baked foods. The mixture during WW2 apparently made a thick, rather rubbery omelette.
