Not everyone always wants an omelet… the texture of an omelet is different than that of scrambles eggs.. even though they both can have the same wonderful ingredients…. so there is absolutely no reason not to whip up scrambled eggs with the same ingredients you would put in a Denver Omelet…. not to mention it makes a perfect brunch food…
Omelets really do not make a good brunch food for a party or a crowd… too many people waiting while others are eating… and the cook doesn’t get to enjoy the party… so instead make it a scramble… it’s easier and takes hardly any time at all.. just prep the ingredients ahead.
The Denver Omelet… typically has diced bell peppers, onions, diced ham and sometimes potatoes and or cheese.
I like serving Scrambled Denver Eggs for brunch… I don’t include the potatoes or cheese when I do make it part of my brunch buffet… I serve a cheese sauce and hash browns on the side … this way my guests can include it or not with their choices.
This also makes a terrific way to use leftover ham…. I make-up a large batch and store it in an airtight container and simply reheat a portion in the microwave for a quick weekday breakfast.
I use green, red and yellow bell peppers… not only are they colorful but each has a slightly different flavor… the red and yellow ones tend to be expensive but … in my opinion… well worth it… they have a milder flavor even a bit sweet flavor… than the green bell peppers…
Use both the white and the green parts of the green onion.
These can be served in tortillas.. on top of English muffins or even in pastry shells with cheese sauce for a fabulous presentation.
The quantities below are flexible … increase or decrease them as you prefer…
Serve with salsa, sour cream and guacamole and a side of hash browns ….just delicious!
Try these eggs for your next brunch party!
