Baked Western Omelet ("Denver Omelet")


Like a crustless quiche, this Baked Wester Omelet (or Denver Omelet) is a healthy and easy way to serve eggs to a crowd. Percect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner!


PREP TIME: 15 minutes

COOK TIME: 45 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 1 hour

YIELD: 4-6 servings


INGREDIENTS:

8 large Eggs (or use 4 Eggs and 6 Egg Whites)

1 cup Whole Milk or 2% Milk (or sub with Half-and-Half or Heavy Cream)

1/2 teaspoon Seasoned Salt (such as Lawry's brand)

6 ounces (about 3/4 cup) diced cooked Ham

1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese

1/2 cup finely chopped Onion

1/2 cup finely chopped Green Bell Pepper

1/2 cup finely chopped Red Bell Pepper


OPTIONAL GARNISHES:

Chopped Fresh Parsley

Chopped Fresh Chives


INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Whisk together eggs, milk, and seasoned salt in a large bowl. Stir in ham, cheese, onion, and peppers.

2. Pour egg mixture into a greased 8-inch-square baking dish.

3. Bake at 350° Fahrenheit for 45 minutes - 1 hour, or until eggs are cooked and the omelet is set.

4. Cut into squares and garnish with parsley or chives, if desired.


**NOTES:


**Dice the onion and bell peppers into very fine pieces so that they soften in the oven. Alternatively, if you prefer softer vegetables in your omelet, saute the onion and the peppers in a skillet before adding them to the egg mixture.


**Use leftove ham (such as holiday extras from Easter or Christmas), or just purchase ham at the grocery store to use in this recipe. You can buy a ham steak and dice it yourself at home, or pick up a package of pre-diced ham and avoid the extra prep. Even sliced ham from the deli counter will work!


**Use whole milk or at least 2% milk for the best texture. You need some fat to make a good egg custard, so even half-and-half or heavy cream will work for a richer, more decadent dish.


**Don't skip the Lawry's Seasoned Salt. Thgis single ingredient is an easy way to add tons of flavor to the omelet, since it includes a blend of seasonings like paprika, onion, and garlic. The omelet just doesn't taste quite as good without it!
