    1. Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Line a 25cm quiche dish with one sheet of puff pastry. Set aside.
    2. In a large frying pan, melt 50g butter until sizzling. Add potatoes, onion, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cover and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until potatoes are lightly browned and crisply tender, about 12 to 15 minutes. Set aside.
    3. In another frying pan, melt 15g butter until sizzling. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together all omelette ingredients except remaining 15g butter. Pour half of omelette mixture into heated frying pan. Cook over medium heat. As omelette sets, lift slightly with spatula to allow uncooked portion to flow underneath. Continue cooking until set, about 2 to 3 minutes. Slide omelette onto baking tray. Repeat with remaining butter and omelette mixture.
    4. Layer ingredients into pie plate on top of puff pastry in the following order: one of the omelettes, half ham, half of fried the potatoes, half grated cheese, remaining potatoes, ham, cheese and second omelette. Top with remaining sheet of puff pastry. Press together edges of both sheets of puff pastry to form a rim; trim off excess. Crimp or flute edges. In small bowl, stir together 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush over puff pastry.
    5. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes; cut into wedges.
