Western / Denver Sandwich

Yesterday was a busy day; we  were all so engrossed with what we were doing that we didn't  realize we hadn't had our breakfast. At about 11 Aishwarya told us that she has made us a special brunch; an all American sandwich called a Western/Denver Sandwich. When we took a bite into the sandwich we realized that  it is none other than our own omelette sandwich from India. This led to a big argument about the origin of the sandwich and its name. So to put everything straight we googled Western/Denver sandwich and Aishwarya was indeed right there existed a sandwich by this name,we also learned that in some places its called a cow-boy sandwich. Whatever the name or wherever it originated I guarantee this is one yummy and filling sandwich and that  we were  so proud that our little girl was so thoughtful and could put together such a delicious brunch. I am now looking forward to more dishes to be made by Aishwarya.

1/4 cup chopped onion
 1/2 teaspoon diced green chilli
1/4 cup diced red/ green pepper
 1/4 cup diced cabbage(optional)
 1/4 cup diced cooked ham (optional  )
 2 tablespoons
 1 tablespoon  milk
 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley(optional)
 4  Eggs
 1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
 1/4 teaspoon   Salt
 4 slices bread, toasted

In a large nonstick skillet, saute onion and green pepper in 1 tablespoon butter until tender. Stir in ham if using and parsley. Whisk the eggs, salt, pepper and milk. Add egg mixture to skillet (mixture should set immediately at edges).
As eggs set, push cooked edges toward the center, letting uncooked portion flow underneath. When the eggs are set; cut into wedges. Spread each slice of toast with  remaining butter. Serve omelet wedges on toast.


  1. Nice filling sandwich..Maybe I will try without the ham
