Colorado: Western or Denver Sandwich

In Colorado's pioneer days, eggs were rare, so settlers would bring them in by wagon, and the eggs would often spoil in the process. To cover up the bad taste, cooks would season them with onions, peppers, ham, and spices and serve them in a sandwich. The Western (sometimes known as Denver) sandwich was born.
