Oven Denver Omelet

“I like omelets but don’t always have time to stand by the stove. That’s why I favour this oven-baked variety that I can quickly pop into the oven at a moment’s notice. My family frequently requests this for Sunday brunch. They always empty the dish.” —Ellen Bower, Taneytown, Maryland

Recipe Notes

Test Kitchen Tips

  • Green pepper is typical in a Denver omelet, but red, yellow and orange peppers are just as good, and add lots of colour.
  • This is an American-style omelet, puffed and golden brown. If you prefer yours more tender and less brown, try baking at a lower temperature, about 325 degrees, until a thermometer reads 160 degrees and eggs are set.
