BAKED DENVER OMELET — This hearty egg bake is loaded with ham, cheese and peppers, and it’s perfect for serving a crowd at breakfast or brunch.
If you’re looking for an easy way to serve omelets to a crowd, this loaded Baked Denver Omelet is the answer!
Can you believe I live near Denver and this is the first time I’ve shared a Denver omelet recipe on my blog?
Just like a traditional Denver omelet, it full of ham, cheese, diced peppers and a handful of sliced green onions. But since this omelet is baked, you don’t have to worry about any flipping or turning.
Fun fact: Historians believe that the Denver omelet was originally served on bread as a sandwich, created by 19th-century cattle drivers in the American West or by possibly Chinese railroad cooks as a type of transportable egg foo yung.
Which is great for me, since I’m not the best at making pretty omelets. Mine always end up looking more like scrambled eggs. So this baked omelet is definitely right up my alley.
And like any omelet, this recipe is easy to change up based on what you have on hand. Almost any kind of cheese will work. And although I love the pop of color from the red peppers, green bell peppers are just as delicious.
Of course, if you’re like us, you love having breakfast for dinner, and this baked egg dish is perfect for any meal of the day. In fact, we might eat this for dinner more than we do for breakfast.
This recipe makes a 9-inch square pan, but it can easily be doubled to feed an even larger crowd. And it’s a great way to use up leftover ham.
My family certainly loved this Baked Denver Omelet, and it’s a dish I’ll make often when I need a quick, easy dish for a potluck brunch or holiday breakfast.
Be sure to save this Baked Denver Omelet recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
