1/4 cup butter, melted

3 cups thinly sliced red potatoes

1 cup thinly sliced yellow onion

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper


6 large eggs

2 TBSP water

1/4 cup minced fresh parsley

salt & pepper


2 cups graded cheddar cheese

2 cups cubed ham

Crust glaze:

1 egg, slightly beaten

1 TBSP water

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Roll each pastry sheet into 12” square.  Place one in a 10” quiche dish-- set aside.

Melt butter in skillet & cook potatoes, onion, salt & pepper for 12 minutes.  Stirring occasionally-- set aside.  

Get quiche pan with puff pastry & layer with 1/2 the cheese, omelet, potatoes & ham.  Reverse & repeat process.  Top with other rolled out piece of puff pastry. Seal edges with a fork & trim off any pastry hang over the edge.  Brush with crust glaze & bake for 30-35 minutes.  Let stand about 10 minutes, slice & ENJOY!!!
