Denver Omelet Bake
A Denver omelet, also known as a Southwest omelet, is particularly popular in diners in the western part of the United States. Whenever I visit my husband’s family in Arizona, I look forward to going out to brunch because the local diner has a Denver omelet that’s oh-so-incredible. During holidays when we don’t make it out west, I love making this for my husband to remind him of his family back home.
