One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
An omelet containing a filling of onion, green pepper, and ham.
- ‘We walked to the lead diner at 0915 and had a western omelet.’
- ‘Breakfast consisted of pre-made western omelets, biscuits and gravy, cold cereal, instant oatmeal, half grapefruits, half oranges, bananas, apples, muffins, cinnamon rolls, breads and bagels to taste, juices, coffee and tea.’

- ‘At a nearby breakfast table two Army Airborne Infantry soldiers, with legs wrapped in casts and Ace bandages, ate western omelets and compared notes.’
