This is one of my favorite types of omelets -- a Denver omelet is also referred to as a southwest or Western omelet. It contains ham, onion, and green bell pepper. It took me such a long time to figure out how to do an omelet folded up like a quesadilla without messing it up. I still have yet to make one the proper way all rolled up delicately, but this is such an awesome cheat. Make it in the oven. It's more of a bake than anything, but regardless, it's the best. It's so easy and simple to throw together and then you just stick it in the oven and let it bake. That's it. Slice and serve. Too easy, right?!

 What you need:
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced (I did more)

  1. Beat eggs and milk until light and fluffy.
  2. Add cheese, peppers, onion, and parsley. Stir to combine.
  3. Pour mixture into a greased 9-inch square pan.
