    Oven Denver Omelet

    8 eggs
    1/2 cup half and half
    1 cup cheddar cheese; shredded
    1 cup fully cooked ham; finely
    -chopped
    1/4 cup green bell pepper; finely
    -chopped
    1/4 cup onion; finely chopped

    In a bowl, beat eggs and half and half until light and fluffy. Stir in
    cheese, ham, green pepper and onion. Pour into a greased 9" square
    baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, until golden brown.

    Just at note, I saute the peppers and onions a bit first though; I like
    them a little less crunchy than they turned out.
