Denver Omelet Recipe
Preparation Time: 8 minutes. Servings: 2
1 1/2 teaspoon of butter and oil (vegetable or peanut) 3 – 4 beaten eggs, seasoned with salt and pepper 1/4 cup diced cooked ham (diced means cut into small pieces – about 1/4 inch) 2 tablespoons diced green or red pepper 2 tablespoons sliced red onion 1-2 ounces Cheddar cheese, grated
Heat a 7 – 8 inch or 10 inch skillet (depending on how thick you want your omelet to be) over moderate heat While the pan is heating, beat the eggs in a mixing bowl until well blended but not frothy When the pan is hot enough to sizzle a drop or water, add the butter and oil combination When butter stops foaming, add ham, peppers and onions, and sauté two minutes or until very hot Whip the eggs a couple of times and pour eggs into pan and let sit on heat until eggs begin to cook around the edges Lift edges of eggs with a rubber spatula and tip pan to allow liquid to run underneath Repeat until top is thickening and very little liquid egg remains Add cheese and cover until cheese is melted Fold omelet and divide before sliding onto plates

I like to eat Omelet very much,thank you for explaining Denver Omelet Recipe .I will definitely try to make this omelet.
I'm an egg fiend, mama! Only thing that can make an omelet better is to slather it w/ country gravy!
Kevin, cream gravy. Now you talking my kinda food. CF
Cream Gravy, CF?
Was raised on chipped beef & cream gravy over white toast (or sometimes buttered noodles).
Also "egg gravy" over toast (or buttered noodles), which in my family was sliced still-warm hard-boiled eggs in the same gravy. YUM!
Gravy and biscuits, sometimes tomato gravy. Was always a favorite meal for us. I am sure cream gravy would make a pine stick taste good. The only eggs in gravy was the giblet gravy. But I like gravy and I like eggs. So yes I would like that.
I made onion gravy tonight, with meatloaf and whipped potatoes. CF
I love gravies and sauces - and I also enjoy CHOCOLATE gravy..................
heck what can I say -

I was in the US Navy and we called these Western Omelets. Always had good food in the Navy ... Really. The Navy Omelets were cooked on an electric griddle until the egg set, then topped with the pepper, ham and cheese, flipped and let sit until the cheese melted. Every sailor had to do 90 days of service in the galley, I was lucky enough to do that in boot camp, at training school, again at my next school and my assigned unit. Served on the USS Constellation for 3 years and believe it or not we had surf and turf (steak and lobster) every other Friday. If you worked nights you had it for breakfast and lunch plus breakfast for dinner. Worked on the Connie in the bakery for a few months helping the baker and slicing bread.
