Omelettes with ham, cheese, onions, and green peppers are often named after what state’s capital?
The Denver Omelet may be one of the Rocky Mountain city’s biggest claims to food fame. A Denver omelette, also known as a Western omelette, is an omelette filled with diced ham, onions, green bell peppers, and cheese. Historians have speculated that the dish was originally served on bread as a sandwich, created by 19th-century cattle drivers in the American West or by Chinese railroad cooks as a sort of transportable egg foo yong. At some point a breadless version was developed, and it became known as the Denver (or western) omelette.
