Baked Denver Omelet

I've seen this recipe on so many different sites, and they're all basically the same.

Feel free to use cooked and crumbled bacon instead of ham, and add other ingredients as preferred such as sliced mushrooms or sliced black olives. Or top with spicy salsa for a Southwestern touch.
