Cook the same as you would any omelette.
Note From Mr Breakfast:
The recipe submitter was a little short on the instructions so here's what to do...
First, melt a Tablespoon of butter in medium frying pan over medium heat and saute the onion and green pepper until tender. Add the ham pieces.
Add the beaten egg. As the egg starts to set, left the edges of the omelette with a spatula so uncooked egg flows under to get cooked. When almost completely set, fold the omelet in half. Turn off the heat. Let the omelette set one minute before serving so the inside cooks through.
If desired, you could place 1/4 cup of shredded cheese over 1/2 of the omelette before folding. Or use 2 overlapping pieces of American cheese for a mid-America greasy spoon diner style Western Omelette.
The classic combination of diced ham, onion and green pepper in a folded omelette. If desired, fill or top with your favorite shredded or sliced cheese.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank baseball27 for this recipe.

I made a Spicy Western Omelette by adding 1/4 of chopped jalapeno in with the onions and bell pepper and then I put shredded Pepper Jack Cheese in the middle. I'd recommend it especially if you like spicy foods.

How is this not a Denver omelette? Although, the picture shows browning which I don't think an omelette should ever have. Although, I have met some people who prefer it that way.

Even though I live on the east coast. It's the best omelette all around! 5 out of 5!

Finish the directions like this and it turns out great: flip omelet over when almost set, place a slice of American cheese on one side, fold and serve.

I looked everywhere for how to make a western omlette! Finally found it here. As if no one knows what one is. Haven't had one since I was a kid...Could not remember what's in it, but now I remember this is how my mom made them. Thank you!
