savory galette recipes

Savory galette recipes are pretty simple once you get the hang of making the crust, which you fold over the edge of the filling and then finish off with an egg wash. Galettes can be simplified by using a store bought crust. You can make sweet or savory galettes and can pretty much bake any fruit or veggie in one of these free form pies.

10 Tips for Making Savory Galettes

  1. Get creative with the crust. You can use a store bought pie crust, a homemade dough, or even make your savory galette with puff pastry dough! This extra flaky pastry dough is always a hit. You can also make gluten free savory galettes by using gluten-free flour in the dough.. Whether you use store-bought or homemade dough most galettes require you fold over the edge of the filling with dough and then finish off with an egg wash.
  2. Use high quality ingredients. Because a galette usually uses just a handful of ingredients, the quality of the ingredients really matters. Use peak-season produce and herbs, and high-quality meats & cheeses.
  3. Let go of perfectionism when it comes to galette-making. Galettes are meant to be free-formed and rustic, so do your best to shape it how you’d like, but don’t be hard on yourself if it isn’t symmetrical… the flavor will be still be amazing.
  4. Enjoy Savory Galettes any time of day. galettes can easily be made for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And of course there are so many sweet galettes for dessert as well.
  5. Allow your savory galette to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving. This helps the galettes to set and then you can serve while still hot or at room temperature.
  6. Make a savory galette without a recipe. While following recipes are a great way to initially familiarize yourself with the galette making process, eventually you may feel empowered to try out your own creations.
  7. Pair savory galettes with a salad, or something light. Galettes are often on the rich and heavy side, so a side salad balances your meal.
  8. Serve savory galettes as a meal or an appetizer. You can serve large slices of savory galette as a main course, or in smaller portions for a delicious appetizer.
  9. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper before baking Savory Galettes to prevent sticking.
  10. Take a picture of your savory galettes. Galettes are just so photogenic, they deserve to be photographed and shown off, don’t you think? Also, I’d love to see your savory galettes, please share with me by tagging me on social media @rainbowdelicious #rainbowdelicious
