Baked Denver Omelette

Today is a happy day. We have reached the end of the ham entries.

I still have some ham left – yes, even after a month of eating it – but it is time to move on. It’s not as if I ate ham every day for the last month; still, the ham lasted for a long, long time.

We’re ending with a great recipe for a baked omelette using the ingredients for a Denver omelette. So easy to make, so delicious and almost showy, a little bit like a soufflé.

Here goes!

Get an onion and a red pepper.

Ham. There is nothing more to say.


Ham, onion and red pepper get into a frypan with some butter (a bit different than the recipe as the ham was still a bit frozen).

Cook the onion, red pepper and ham.

Meanwhile, break eight eggs into a bowl.
