Classic diner food is kind of awesome, and the Western Omelet is a menu staple.

Mushrooms and peppers and tons of hot sauce? It’s just a great combo, whether you’re actually in Denver channeling cowboy vibes or are sitting in a lacquered booth in New Jersey.

This recipe allows you to recreate the popular breakfast dish with a slight nutrition upgrade.
