What is your method of cooking? What is your oven temp? Are you using a broiler? Are we talking slices of ham or dices, how big are your pieces of meat? Is this a specific recipe on food 52?

A little info would help in answering your question so that we don't have to guess would be helpful.

OK- So you need the 200C for the puff to spring but maybe turning it down to a lower temp to finish cooking after the puff has sprung would help. Also, whatever the top layer is, it's going to brown. You might want to layer so that whatever is ok to brown should be on the top layer. Maybe the cheese and tomato should cover the ham. And if your were using convection, try turning it off. I hope this helps!
