Baked Denver Omelet

The Denver sandwich is a western (Canadian) favorite – a toasted sandwich made with a fried egg filling containing ham, onions, and peppers. We couldn’t find it on any restaurant menus here in “the east” until we discovered that it was called a western sandwich here. Well, here is the Denver/Western sandwiches cousin – the Denver Omelet. A breakfast dish made easy because it is baked – no watching and turning required. It doesn’t have to be just for breakfast, this also makes a nice quick dinner.

    Great brunch favorite. Reheats wonderfully in the microwave.

    I use red pepper instead of green and bake for 35 minutes at high altitude (Denver, CO).
