Things "Denver"

Recommended Posts

ran across a recipe for a "Denver Casserole"

potatoes layered with onion, green pepper, diced ham, cheese.

tasty item - whole meal in one dish....

 

sounds like a "Denver Omelet" without the eggs....

 

anyone know how dishes involving diced ham&(stuff) got the meta-label of "Denver"

couple different explanations … I don't care.   I love the combination and remember sharing a western(Denver) sandwich with my grandfather, Pop, many Saturdays as a kiddle at a luncheonette in Riverhead, NY near the train station.  

WOW... hadn't thought about that for years....thanks for bringing it back.

To this day if I go out for breakfast I order either a Western( and still can only eat half) or corned beef hash with hash browns and hard scrambled eggs ….. and take 2/3 of that home.

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

I just got curious if there was, for example, a chef named Denver who became world famous by dicing up ham or something....

sounds like the origins are a bit murky.

For a long time you could find a Denver omelette or a Denver sandwich on diner menus even up here in Canada. Mostly they are now called Western.

Makes me cringe - bell peppers, ham - running now
