Omelette is one of the breakfast favorites in my family. It is a rare treat and a true culinary delight. Omelettes are usually a little bit time consuming to make and mornings are always hectic around here, so I don’t get to enjoy them as much as I would like to. This Denver omelette is super easy to make and only takes 25 minutes. The secret is you can bake it in the oven in a baking sheet, as your preferred method, rather than frying it on the pan. This way you can make a larger batch in no time that would feed the whole family.
This simple but delicious omelette delivers amazing flavor and texture in a package of just 6 basic ingredients. Eggs, cream, ham, cheddar cheese, onions and bell peppers all come together in this wonderful timeless omelette combination to excite your taste buds. It is fluffy and velvety smooth. Rich and creamy and melty cheesy tasty. Everything you want in an omelette.
Those 6 ingredients are a traditional way to make a Denver omelette. But you can tweak it to fit your personal preferences or whatever other ingredients sitting in your fridge with no destination. I love adding mushrooms and fresh tomatoes. You can substitute ham for breakfast sausage or bacon for a more complex and intense flavor. If you are not a big fan of onion try scallions instead, they have a milder taste and will give an omelette a nice pop of color.
I am using cream instead of water, together with my beaten eggs for a more creamy and rich omelette. And the melty cheddar cheese really binds everything together.
It is also very important to use high quality eggs like cage-free or organic. They taste so much better, and since eggs take center stage in this dish you want the good stuff. Enjoy your omelette!
