Happy Birthday Denver - Denver Omelette






Why is a Denver omelette called a Denver omelette if no parts of Colorado are actually in the filling? Yet another mystery of life. Have to make this omelette for breakfast today to commemorate Denver's 150th year today - HAPPY BIRTHDAY - 5280 @ 150. Perhaps these numbers will be lucky for 4 ekor fans in Malaysia and Singapore.


Ingredients:

2 teaspoons butter or margarine

1 tablespoons chopped fully cooked ham

1 tablespoon finely chopped bell pepper

2 tablespoon finely chopped onion

2 eggs, beaten with salt and pepper

Method:

Heat butter in 8-inch omelette 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, 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 spatula under edge of omelette, then jerk pan sharply to loosen eggs from bottom of pan. Fold portion of omelette nearest you just to center. (Allow for portion of omelette to slide up side of pan.) Turn omelette onto warm plate, flipping folded portion of omelette over so it rolls over the bottom. Tuck sides of omelet under if necessary.

Hi Lily, I'm new to Blogger. I'm a Malaysian too. Just moved to US and miss Malaysian food like crazy. I would like to learn more about recipe and ways to cook Malaysian dishes from you. How can I add you as my friend?
