Recipe Notes

The classic Western (or “Denver”) omelet usually includes bell peppers, onion, ham, and cheese, so that’s exactly what I did here. However, you can feel free to play around with the ingredients and pick all of your favorites – bacon or sausage, Swiss or American cheese, and any fresh veggies that you might have on hand.
