The Denver omelet has many origin stories, but it was likely concocted by Chinese immigrants working on the railroads in the West. Egg foo young, a mixture of beaten egg, ham, and other vegetables, is a very popular food item among the American Chinese Community.

Wherever this dish originated, it is a beautifully simple and delicious breakfast for any occasion. The crunch from the onion and pepper mesh really well with the soft textures from the ham and egg. They bring a punch of bright flavor that breaks up the richness and fattiness from the cheese.

If you get tired of the varieties of ketogenic smoothies, hashes, and muffins out there – try a simple and easy breakfast like this one to fill your belly in the morning. Serve on the side with a nice cup of coffee, or roll it up and take it out with you on the go.
