“Since this is a combination of American Chinese takeout and the ingredients of a Western/Denver Omelette, the name seems to work. NOTE: When I make this, I never measure anything, having it come out a little different each time, is what makes it fun. Feel free to modify this according to your own tastes.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To prepare cooked rice, wet your fingers and break it up in the bowl. Preheat a large skillet or wok to medium to high heat. Add some cooking oil in the bottom. Add the egg and fry until easy, soft,cook. Remove from pan and set aside. I usually will cook a very small omelette, and chop it up right before I add it at the end.
  2. Add a touch more oil. Add onion and peppers and fry until tender.
  3. Remove onions and peppers to a separate bowl or push to the side, add diced ham and stir fry for about 30 seconds.
  4. Add oil, add rice and stir fry making sure to constantly chop and move rice around so the grains separate, lumps are what we are fighting people ;-) 'Bout 3-5 minutes depending on the heat.
  5. When rice is almost done, add the ham, peppers and onion and give it a toss/stir, chop up the egg and add that too. To season remove from heat to avoid overcooking. Add the salt, pepper, sugar and lastly a healthy splash of light soy sauce and a drop of Sesame oil (use a very light hand, too much Sesame oil ruins dishes), Cook for an additional 40 seconds and it's eatin' time!
