Western Sandwiches

This delicious sandwich is a version of the “Denver” sandwich that is really an easy omelet served as a sandwich.   I have a glass lid for my skillet, so I can see how it looks, but the eggs set right up, even if they don’t look set until you touch them.  Don’t overcook them, fold them over, they will continue to cook inside, and then cut in half to serve.  You could also sprinkle a little cheese on the omelet before folding.  We thought we’d have to try this with sausage next time…and serve it as an omelet with a slice of toast on the side.   If you have had trouble making omelets in the past, this method of covering the pan worked perfectly.
