Denver’s known for lots of green things, like their progressive ideals, all the tax money they’ve made since 2012, and their bangin’ green chili. To commemorate yet another Manning keeping Tom Brady from a Super Bowl ring, I had to celebrate with one of his city’s signature dishes, the Denver Sandwich, which is really just another of the city’s signature dishes, the Denver Omelette, on bread.
Hey, I don’t care if it’s derivative. It’s a sandwich, it’s delicious, and I’ve got the munchies.
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 3 eggs
- 4 cloves garlic, diced
- ½ lb ham, cubed
- half an onion, chopped
- half a green bell pepper, chopped
- ½ c shredded cheddar
- ½ c green chili
- 1 roll
- Heat olive oil in pan over medium heat 1 minute.
- Simmer garlic in oil until aromatic, 1-2 minutes.
- Crack eggs into a bowl and whisk until yolks and whites run together. Pour into the pan.
- Once the bottom of the eggs has just started to set, dump onions, peppers, ham, and cheese on top. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Slip a spatula under half the eggs and fold them over the rest of the eggs, keeping onions and peppers inside.
- Flip omelette until each side is lightly browned, then remove from heat.
- Slice the roll in half horizontally and spread the chili on both sides.
- Lay the omelette onto the bread and top with the other slice. Serve with a hot coffee!
