Post ... 1974 ... is a cook!!!
« on: July 13, 2019, 01:31:45 PM »
I know that the 1,974th post is an odd number post to celebrate, but I have a few reasons.  I was born in December 1974 + my first grail score & first major restoration project was a Ď74-Ď75 Gourmet.  This is the kettle that really got me hooked!!!




Iíve been relatively silent in the WKC for a tad over a week, waiting to get the chance to connect the 1974 dots.  So, this morning was the perfect opportunity.  Decided to make omelettes on my ďbirth yearĒ Gourmet, using a Gourmet grate & skillet. 



My wife has developed an intolerance to dairy recently, so I didnít want to use butter on the skillet, or milk in the egg mixture.  In place of butter, I used avocado oil on the skillet.  In place of milk, I used San Pellegrino (sparkling water) in the egg mixture.  To my pleasant surprise, those two substitutions are actually game changers for omelettes on the grill.  These were the lightest, fluffiest eggs Iíve ever had come off a grill/campfire. 



Loaded the omelettes up with crumbled bacon, diced ham, bell pepper, onion, tomato, colby jack cheese, and part skim mozzarella.  Mozzarella may sound odd, but youíll thank me if you try it.  My wife got fake cheese in herís[emoji15]. 




My plating techniques can use some work, but Iíll get better.  Topped with sliced grape tomato & fresh cilantro.  Had some tomatillo/avocado salsa on the side (my drizzle technique needs serious work[emoji36]).  This is the worst looking of the four, but the only one I took a pic of with a proper background.  Apparently, my pic techniques need some work too[emoji23]. 



Canít forget the obligatory ďblushĒ pic:

Great post and recipe, thanks!   I liked the use of the GBS griddle.

Not a thing wrong with any of that, except I would have expected a poop emoji in there LOL

I have a friend who studied at the Cordon Bleu in France. He told me many years ago if you want fluffy eggs add just a bit of cold water. Not sure about fuzzy water but it sounds like it did a great job for you. Except for the peppers looks great. I'm allergic to the peppers.
