Denver Omelette

Where to go: Sam’s No. 3

Although there is some speculation about its exact origin, the country knows this omelette combination as the Denver omelette, and many restaurants throughout the city serve the classic American brunch item. The omelette was popular before the 1920s and '30s when it first appeared in print, and originally appeared with bread as a Western sandwich. The combination is simple, but delicious: eggs, diced ham, onion, bell pepper, and cheese.
