Pineapple Series - Sweet Pineapple Omelet...and 2nd year blogiversary

Two words I've never thought of as a combination is pineapple and omelet.

1960s Queensland was clearly avant garde with unusual food combinations as I am discovering in the Golden Circle Tropical Recipe Book. And people think we're backwards up here?

After the dramas from yesterday's broken deck roof fiasco, Jason needed a bit of a sunshiny pick-me-up for Sunday brunch. So out came my pineapple bible and off to work I went to create the taste sensation that is the ....

Sweet Pineapple Omelet

15 oz can crushed pineapple
6 eggs
pinch of salt
2 tbsp cold water
2 tbsp butter

Drain syrup from pineapple. In a small saucepan melt 1 tsp butter, add drained pineapple, heat till bubbling hot. Melt remaining butter in omelet pan and keep hot. In separate bowl beat eggs lightly with a fork adding the water and salt. Then pour egg mixture into hot butter and cook quickly over high heat. When set, place half of the pineapple in centre and fold omelet over. Slide onto hot dish and spoon remaining pineapple over top. Serve immediately. Sufficient for 2 to 3 servings.

Sweet Pineapple Omelet

This was a very simple meal to prepare. But how did it taste?

Jason said it was okay. "I don't think I'd want to have this again though," he said through a mouthful of sweet omelet.

I'm not too sure it was his dour mood which gave him the dour outlook on his meal...But I have to say, it was disconcerting tucking into a what looked like a big greasy traditional omelet and then tasting that zingy sweet pineapple. This type of food plays with your mind.

I think a nice piece of crispy bacon could've worked well with it. Bacon makes everything taste better.

And on a completely different topic, it is Fun and VJs second birthday!! Who would've thought, two years today, where this first post would lead...actually nowhere really...just a lot of photos of Jason shirtless and lots of posts about the changes to the Sow's Ear.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all the nice people (and not so nice, because let's face it, I really don't know who reads this blog) out there for taking the time to read the blog, leave comments or send me emails.

It's been fun and let's hope it will continue to be so!

  3. Congrats on your 2 year anniversary. It will be a great journal of your renovations. One of the bloggers had a book made of hers which was pretty cool. Breakfast sounds quite interesting at times at your place...

  10. Well, Anita, I hope you and I know one another well enough that I can get away with remarking that the pineapple omelette looks absolutely awful, and, moving quickly on, congratulate you on two very entertaining and amusing years.

  23. bugger, I just lost my comment. I was going to say, I was one of the nice ones but you already know that. I was also going to confess to maybe enjoying the shirtless shots a little more than I should and also thinking that the pineapple omelette may not make the next issue of Donna Hay.
    Having said that Congratulations on your anniversary. Yours is one of my most favourite blogs to read and chuckle with.

  24. Congrats on 2 years of blogging, have thoroughly enjoyed every post- yours is one of the few that I was compelled to read from the very beginning. Now about that omelette- it is frankly a completely obscene concept and Jason should get hubby of the year award for actually eating it. He must really love you! melx

  25. congratulations anita!! what a brilliant blog it is too, just love this corner of the ether!

    bummer about the roof, but i guess its good to get it sorted now.

    and sorry darl, i do so love your project, but i dont think pineapple omelette is for me. when do you get to the pineapple cocktail chapter?? i'll be totally on board then. promise xx

  26. I have to ask -have you been watching the renovators? One of the houses is a 60's brick 'cottage' and they revealed their plans for it last night - basically they are going to strip it of all it's defining 60's character and render the outside! Sacrilige!

  27. I have been watching Leah! My eyebrows were definitely raised with that design. Such a shame they are trying to McMansion it!
