Honestly I have never heard of galette before until few months ago when Marian Bull brought one to a picnic at Prospect Park. A ga..what?
And ever since then, it's all I see and hear and read about in the digital space. It's like one of those things where you go and buy a green car and suddenly, it's all you see on the road, green cars.
I've been meaning to make one but well you know, had to wait till it was cooler to turn on the oven.
Instead of doing a sweet one, I did a savory galette with eggs cause I love eggs.
This is a no-brainer. The only tough part is making the dough but now that I have made the 4 & 20 Blackbirds pie crust dough few times, it's getting easier and quicker. (You can find their all butter pie crust recipe on Food52 or go buy their book!)
The rest of this is really up to you. I went to the farmers market and didn't really decide until I saw what was available. I got couple red onions and some watermelon radishes because I have never seen them at the market.
-------------------------------------------- 1 pie crust dough 1 red onion 1 watermelon radish (or 2 if they're on the small side) 3 eggs Salt and pepper
1. Pre-heat a 400 degree oven 2. Thinly sliced the red onion and radishes 3. Roll out the dough (It's alright if it's not a perfect circle) 4. Place a parchment paper on a baking sheet and move the dough onto it 5. Place the slices of onion on the dough, starting from the center and move outward (Leave about an inch or inch and a half of edge) 6. Crack 2 eggs on top of the onions 7. Place the slices of radishes between/around the eggs (Doesn't have to be perfect) 8. Season with salt and pepper 9. Fold the edges over the filling 10. Crack the 3rd egg, scramble it, and brush it on the dough 11. Jam the galette into the oven and bake for 30ish mins or till crust is golden brown
Few things I like to add for next time. Finish the galette with a nice drizzle of olive oil, grate some nice parmesan cheese over, and sprinkle some parsley onto it.
