The Hawaiian Omelet

The Hawaiian OmeletteWhile heading to court recently for a speeding ticket that I received one day on my lunch break I drove past El Greco Family Restaurant. I had some time to kill and still hadn’t eaten lunch so I decided to stop in for a bite. One thing I love about Greek restaurants like El Greco is that no matter what type of food you’re in the mood for they usually serve it, from all day breakfasts to pasta to fajitas you can usually get it all at these types of places.

While perusing the menu however I noticed one item that I’ve never noticed at a Greek restaurant or any other restaurant for that matter, a Hawaiian omelet consisting of pineapple, bacon, ham and Monterey Jack cheese. I’ve mentioned how much I enjoy breakfast food before, so that coupled with my love for Hawaiian style pizza made the Hawaiian omelet a pretty easy lunch choice.

The omelet was good, but had the same problem that Hawaiian pizzas sometimes have, where the taste of the pineapple can be a little overpowering compared to all the other ingredients. As far as omelets at Greek restaurants go I’ll probably just stick with the gyro meat omelet with feta cheese which is my usual choice.

    Lol I used to live in Hawai’i and never saw this THERE.

    I bet you could recreate the omelet at home with a better pineapple ratio

      I should give it a try. For some reason I’m terrible at making omelets though. I always try to flip the one half over too early and then the eggs always just run all over the rest of the pan.
