The breakfast fave known as the Western omelet is also known as a Denver omelet or a Southwestern omelet. The filling includes diced ham, green bell pepper, and onion. Feel free to add a little shredded cheddar or Swiss if you like cheese in your eggs, but this recipe is for the Western omelet purist so we've skipped the cheese.
