Denver Scramble

Instead of doing Super Bowl party food all week I thought it would be fun to do a dish from each of the cities represented in the game. Denver omelettes are a diner staple across the country. If you don’t have a great omelette pan, just forge ahead and call it a Denver Scramble if things go to pieces at the end – that’s how they do it in the game!

Denver Scramble, Per Serving

  • One whole egg
  • Two egg whites
  • 1/4 c. finely diced green pepper
  • 1/4 c. finely diced onion
  • 1/2 c. diced ham
  • 1/3 c. sauteed mushrooms
  • Two slices of cheese (I like a mixture of provolone and sharp cheddar.)

I get everything ready ahead of time so I can just stand at the stove and put the omelettes together. Pretend there’s mushrooms here, unless you don’t like them anyway. . .
