Guess what day it is?! Before you picture a Camel saying this because it’s Wednesday, think again. 😛 It’s Sunday!!! My day to make a big breakfast, and be super lazy the rest of the day. I love Sundays! 🙂
So I’m always trying to come up with different ways to make eggs, because frankly I get sick of eating them the same way all the time. So today I made them a little different.
This Denver Omelet Casserole brings me back to my high school days, where my first summer job was a short-order cook/helper at a local diner. I didn’t get to do a ton of cooking, mostly just prep work for the chef. I remember once a week it was my job to do all of the chopping of onions and green peppers which would be used for their Denver Omelet special on the menu. I chopped onion after onion, and wept (because of the onions). Actually I really liked doing this, it made me feel like ‘wow I can really cook!’ Even if it was just prep work. 🙂 And I always got a free meal while working there, so hey it wasn’t all that bad.
So getting back to this recipe, I was craving a Denver Omelet, but wanted to make it more simple. This is where the Casserole part comes in…because we Minnesotans love our Casseroles! (Even though I’m living in Florida and it’s 80 degrees out). I’m turning the oven on for this deliciousness. 🙂
