Western Omelet

Western omelets are pretty easy to make, they are loaded with bell pepper, onions and ham and cheese. They are also called farmer's omelets,  Denver omelet or a Southwestern omelet. They are a hardy breakfast most love. we recommend a thick, chunky salsa , hot sauce like Tabasco or Sriracha on the side. Enjoy!~

Once your butter is melted, pour in your whisked eggs and add 1/2 of your cheese. Add  sauteed onions and bell pepper, and diced ham to the top and let the edges turn solid . 

Once the edges of your eggs are solid all the way around, slowly slide a spatula under the eggs and fold half way, take your spatula and finish turning it over to meet the other side.  Transfer to a plate, (use pan to slide onto plate,) and add the extra vegetables to the top, add your favorite salsa!~


Important Tip:

Let omelet rest, on plate for 3 to 4 minutes so the insides fully cooked.
