Recipe Directions for Brunch Omelet Torte

  1. On a lightly floured surface, roll each sheet of puff pastry into a 12" square. Lay 1 sheet puff pastry into 10" pie pan (or an 8" or 9" cake pan.) Set aside.

  2. In a 10" skillet melt 1/4 c butter until sizzling. Add potatoes, onion, 1/4 t salt and 1/4 t pepper. Cover; cook over medium high heat, turning occasionally, until potatoes are lightly browned and crisply tender (12 - 15 minutes.) Set aside.

  3. In cleaned skillet, melt 1 T butter until sizzling. Meanwhile, in small bowl stir together all omelet ingredients except remaining 1 T of butter. Pour half of omelet mixture (3/4 c) into skillet with sizzling 1 T butter. Cook over medium heat. As omelet mixture sets, lift slightly with spatula to allow uncooked portion to flow underneath. Continue cooking until set (2-3 minutes.) Slide omelet onto cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining butter and omelet mixture.

  4. Layer ingredients into pie pan with puff pastry in the following order: omelet, 1/4 lb ham, half of fried potatoes, 1 c shredded cheese, remaining potatoes, ham, cheese, and omelet.

  5. Top with remaining sheet of puff pastry to form a rim; trim off excess puff pastry. Crimp or flute edges of puff pastry. Cover; refrigerate overnight, if desired.

  6. Heat oven to 375 degrees. (If torte was refrigerated overnight, let it stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking.

  7. In a small bowl, stir together 1 egg and 1 T water; brush over puff pastry. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes; cut into wedges.
