Family-Style Denver Omelet
This "eight-egg monster" has a lacy, browned exterior and soft, tender center filled with savory ingredients. The trick to cooking a super-sized omelet involves the skillet lid and low heat.
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted our Family-Style Denver Omelet recipe to boast a tender, flavor-packed filling—and we also wanted it be large enough to feed four people. We chopped the filling ingredients fine to keep them from causing the omelet to set improperly. We also sautéed the ham steak, peppers, and onions in butter to build their flavor and soften their texture. Once the omelet had set, we turned down the heat and put the cover on the pan—this helped the thick omelet to cook all the way through. We added the cheese at the very end, letting the cover trap enough residual heat to melt it.
