Denver Omelet

2 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green or red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 cup chopped cooked ham
8 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 cup (4 ounces) grated cheddar cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 10-inch round baking dish (or make the
entire recipe in a cast-iron skillet). Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft. Add the ham and cook for 2 minutes more. Remove from the, heat. Beat the eggs and milk in a large bowl. Stir in the cheese and add the sauteed
vegetables and ham. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer the mixture to the prepared dish. If baking in a cast-iron skillet, pour egg mixture with cheese over the vegetables and ham. Bake for 20 minutes or until the top is puffy and brown. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
