Baked Denver Omelet
This baked Denver omelet is really a frittata with ham, bell pepper, onion, and Cheddar cheese -- all the classic ingredients of the original.
Subtly bitter green bell pepper brings out the sweetness of the ham and onions in Chef John's Denver omelet, a satisfying lunch or dinner option.
NOM NOM!! I'm eating this as I type and it's delicious. I love that after making this, I have breakfast for the next few days taken care of. Great recipe!
Since this is a baked omelet, there is no need to dirty a skillet, too. While the oven is preheating, just put your butter, onion, bell pepper and ham in the dish you are going to bake it in and place that in the oven until "sauteed" and heated through to your liking while you are beating the eggs and milk and then stirring in the S&P and cheese. When the onion, bell pepper and ham are ready,stir them into the egg mixture then pour the whole thing back into the baking dish and bake. Less dishes to do.
I needed a fast and easy dinner, this fit the bill perfectly. I omitted the salt and scaled to 12 eggs. I baked it right in the pan after saueting the vegetables and ham. Baked in 20 minutes exactly in my oven. My sons enjoyed this with home fries and tomatoes. #AllrecipesAllstarsCanada #DinnerUnder30
We L.O.V.E. this recipe and its one, that we make at least once a week, I love it just the way it is written, but we have made it with different ingredients..basically what we had on hand and no matter what, it is delish!! I always add a little dill and we prefer it with swiss cheese, it takes the recipe to a whole new level for my family! Thanks for sharing!! This is a family favorite for us.
