Western or Denver Omelet

Denver Omelet is a thick omelet made with onions, green peppers and ham.  I substituted the ham with broccoli. It's made in a frying pan, so really easy to make. Kids loved it as breakfast.
Found this amazing recipe in joy of baking 75th edition cookbook. I'm sending this recipe to Cooking from a cookbook challenge. 

Preparation Time: 10 minutes 
Cook Time: 15 minutes 
Serves : 2
Source : Joy of baking 75th edition 


Butter : 1 tablespoon
Onion : 1 medium chopped finely
Green bell pepper: 1 medium chopped finely
Broccoli: 1/2 cup chopped finely
Eggs : 4 large
Milk : 1 tablespoon
Ground black pepper: 1/2 teaspoon 
Salt : 1/4 teaspoon 


Heat butter in a fry pan, add onions, green peppers and sauté for 8-10 minutes until they are soft. 
Add broccoli and sauté for 2 minutes.
Meanwhile, add eggs, milk, salt pepper and beat gently.
Add this egg mixture to the veggies and leave it for 30 seconds.
Use a wooden spatula and slowly move the egg mixture to the middle.
Cook for 2 minutes and flip the omelet and cook it for 1 minute.
Don't let the omelet brown. Turn off the stove and serve hot.
