Denver Omelet Casserole

Good News!  Studhubs and I survived Jonas, also known as Snowpacolypse.  We got about 16 inches of snow, which is nowhere near the 30 inches that many accumulated, but is a pretty significant amount for our area.  The entire town was shut down and we were snowed in for the weekend.  There was a lot of fuzzy blankets, Netflix, reading, naps, and FOOD! On days like this I LOVE making dishes like my Denver Omelet Casserole!

A piece of the Denver Omelet Casserole cut from the casserole dish and on a white plate.

I get all of the great flavors of a Denver omelet without the hassle of making the omelet itself.  Not mention it's delicious hot or at room temperature.  You are going to flip over this amazing casserole so...

I took a rubber spatula and kind of pushed things around so that the egg mixture permeated all of the filling for the Denver Omelet Casserole.
