There are some dishes that are forever tied to their geographic location. Cheesesteak = Philadelphia. Clam Chowder = Boston.

Denver? Well, actually I think of green chile, but most people probably think of an omelet. Specifically an omelet with ham, peppers, onions, and cheese. The history of the Denver Omelet is shady at best, but CPR did a story on it last year and I guess traced it back to trying to cover up the stale flavor of eggs shipped by wagon.

It also was originally a sandwich and not an omelet.

But however you want to serve it, the combination of flavors is undoubtedly a winner and I took it to the next level by wrapping everything up. The wrap ends up being pretty hefty and so it seemed right to call it a Mile High Breakfast Wrap rather than just a Denver Wrap.

Print Recipe     Pin Recipe

Directions

  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, add a drizzle of oil and the chopped ham. Cook for a few minutes until ham starts to brown a bit. Then add peppers and onions and cook for another few minutes until veggies start to soften, but still have a little crunch to them.
  2. Remove veggies and ham from the skillet and add scrambled eggs. Cook until eggs are just set and then cover with cheddar cheese. Cover skillet and let cheese melt for 20-30 seconds.
  3. To make a wrap, scoop out half of the cheese eggs onto a flatbread wrap and talk with the ham and veggie mixture. Pile it high! Season with a sprinkle of salt and pepper and some fresh oregano (opt.).
  4. Wrap it up and serve while warm.

Breakfast Wraps

This recipe starts a great spread of easy-to-find veggies, plus some ham and cheese. Because I’m rolling everything in a wrap, I like to slice everything into strips rather than dice it.

The basics.

Start by cooking the ham in a skillet with some oil. Once the ham starts to brown a bit add your peppers and onions.

Smellin’ good already.

You don’t want to overcook the veggies. They should soften a bit, but still have some crunch to them.

Try not to overcook!

Scoop that mixture out of your skillet and add the eggs! I recommend turning the heat down to low so your eggs cook slowly. When the eggs are almost set completely, add the cheddar cheese to the top and cover the skillet for 20 seconds so the cheese can get really melty!

Egg biz.

Making a mile high wrap is pretty straight forward at this point. Scoop the cheese eggs onto a wrap and top with a heap of the ham/veggie mixture! Season it with a pinch of salt and pepper and some fresh oregano if you want to get fancy!

At most, this whole thing takes 15-20 minutes to make and is a fantastic way to start the day. Want to eat it on the go? No problem. I’d just wrap it in foil and you’re in business.

It’s a perfect combo of flavors. If you like it though, don’t thank me. Thank the people who wanted to hide the flavor of stale eggs!

  3. I love food that is quick to make. It sort of takes away the ” I don’t have time to cook” theory out of the picture!! I love the idea of these wraps. chockfull of nutrition!!

  4. Such a fun recipe. I wonder if Flat Out makes gluten-free flat bread. I could always enjoy the recipe without the bread though as someone who is gluten-free. Great photos and color too!

  5. These looks awesome Nick! We have shared a link to this on our food community website. Please let us know if you would like it removed. Keep cooking! -WayofTheFork
