2 teaspoons butter or margarine 2 tablespoons chopped fully cooked ham 1 tablespoon finely chopped bell pepper 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion 2 eggs, beaten
Heat butter in 8-inch omelet pan or skillet over medium-high heat just until butter begins to brown. As butter melts, tilt pan to coat bottom. Cook ham, bell pepper and onion in butter 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
Quickly pour eggs into pan. While sliding pan back and forth rapidly over heat, quickly stir with fork to spread eggs continuously over bottom of pan as they thicken. Let stand over heat a few seconds to lightly brown bottom of omelet. (Do not overcook, omelet will continue to cook after folding.)
Tilt pan and run fork under edge of omelet, then jerk pan sharply to loosen eggs from bottom of pan. Fold portion of omelet nearest you just to center. (Allow for portion of omelet to slide up side of pan.) Turn omelet onto warm plate, flipping folded portion of omelet over so it rolls over the bottom. Tuck sides of omelet under if necessary.
Usually you see a Denver omelet with the ham and vegetables folded inside. I liked this version just as well. A wonderfully simple and quick breakfast.

I love a good denver omelet, so many try to get fancy and add other things in but this is indeed a true denver omelet.

My friend had never had a classic Denver omelet before so I wanted to make a real one for her to enjoy. This fit the bill perfectly. Good cooking instructions and the taste and texture were spot on. Thank you!
