The Gallant Galette

This weeks challenge was a perfect delight to make and especially to eat! I must admit that when I read through the list of recipes for this month, this one seemed particularly scary. What a pleasant surprise to have it come together so quickly and beautifully. The dough was a breeze to work with and altogether not intimidating at all. For the topping I used Pepper Jack cheese (Jim's favourite) and the mozzarella along with tomato and basil. We ate the whole thing in about 5 minutes...(managing to only save a small slice for my Mum).

Because the dough was enough for two galettes, I made a sweet one the next day for dessert, adding pear and raspberries to a sugar and cinnamon mixture dotted with butter. It was, again, perfectly delicious, and devoured instantly with ice cream.

The Gallant Galette has become a new family favourite! I am eager to make it again.


  1. I was happy, as usual, to sample the delicious recipes that come from Jessica's kitchen...and was not disappointed. In the middle of a busy day at 'Windergarden' the Gallant Galette saved the day. Love, mkm

  2. Look great Jess!
    I bet your sweet version was to die for!
