Denver Omelet
Copyright Recipe © 2016 Woodland Foods


Makes 1 omelet


  1. Place the peppers and onions in a small bowl and cover with boiling water, set aside.

  2. Crack the eggs into a small bowl and whisk until smooth.

  3. Heat a medium non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add the butter. When the butter foams a bit add the ham, cook for 3-4 minutes until the ham crisps a little. Drain the peppers and onions, pressing out excess water and add to the pan.

  4. Cook this for 2 minutes and remove to a bowl. Return the pan to the heat and add the eggs. With a heat resistant spatula move the outer edges of the eggs to the center and tilt the pan to pool the eggs into the vacant space. When the center is beginning to set sprinkle the cheese over the omelet. Repeat with the ham, pepper mixture. Gently shake the pan to check for doneness
