The Denver Omelet
Ingredients20 m servings 491
- Beat eggs until just combined; do not over-beat.
- Melt butter in a skillet over high heat. Add ham, onion, and bell pepper. Sprinkle in a nice pinch of salt and a touch of pepper. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until onions start to soften and ham begins to caramelize, about 5 minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium-low and pour in the eggs. Mix briefly with a spatula while shaking the pan to ensure ingredients are evenly distributed. Quickly run the spatula along the edges of the omelet.
- Sprinkle Cheddar cheese and cayenne pepper over the omelet. Cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until the top is still wet but not runny, about 5 minutes. Fold omelet in half with your spatula and transfer to a plate.

Soooooo delicious! I made with bacon bits instead of ham, and it was perfect :)
So good, turned out perfect from following the video directions.
I added extra cheese and hot sausage crumbles. Amazing!! I have enough for 4 days. Using as food prep.
Love Denver omelettes. My father was a short order cook as a young man and he always put chopped dill pickles in his Denver omelet which really makes it as far as I’m concerned!
