Remove from heat; allow to cool slightly while beating eggs. Beat egg whites until stiff. Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon-colored. Add tapioca mixture to egg yolks; mix well. Fold into egg whites. Turn into hot, buttered 10-inch skillet. Cook over low heat 3 minutes. Then bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Omelet is sufficiently cooked when a knife inserted comes out clean.
