Another savory Galette...


My favorite dinner in the summer has always been a tossed salad, grilled steak or chicken and a baked potato. Of course, the potato part varies and often we serve a veggie dish of some kind. So I was overjoyed to run across this recipe in Donna Hay's 50th Birthday Issue. I love this magazine! I took a subscription, finally, and it was the nicest gift I've given myself in ages!

Is this the perfect recipe to serve with steak or what? Kind of a potato/onion upside down cake tart! And with my favorite Gruyère too. I love the way the onions cook at the bottom so when you turn it out, they are all caramelized and sit on top like pieces of fruit. And those crunchy potatoes. Don't you want to just pick them right out of the photo? This was such a fabulous side dish, I can't wait to make it again. Do I really need to say any more?  Look at that photo! You gotta love it.

Potato, Onion and Gruyère Galette
Donna Hay's 50th Anniversary Issue


 
Ingredients:

2 1/2 tablespoons butter
12 sprigs thyme
1 large onion, sliced somewhat thickly ( a tad more than 1/4 inch thick)
3/4 t0 1 lb. waxy potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin)
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup grated gruyère
1 cup grated mozzarella
sea salt and cracked black pepper

Method:

Preheat oven to 400°. Melt the butter in a 9-10 inch ovenproof frying pan over medium heat. Add the thyme and onion and cook for 5 minutes. Place the potato, oil, Gruyère, mozzarella, salt and pepper in a bowl and toss to combine.
Top the onion with the potato mixture and bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Turn upside down to serve.

  2. Barbara, I have a no more magazine rule around here... you do make me want to break it but I think I will settle for your wonderful versions of Donna's recipes. It looks breathtakingly delicious and so perfect for the salad and grilled meat companion. The crusty cheese is just perfect... I did want to pick those potatoes up right off the screen! Thanks for sharing... keep those recipes coming!

  8. I bought some big, beautiful Walla Walla onions at the farmers' market yesterday that I was just going to simply roast for dinner but you've got me rethinking not using them with potatoes! Really delicious-looking, Barbara. This could be a meatless meal with the cheese but with a grilled steak - fantastic!

  12. Like Susan, I bought Walla Walla Sweet's yesterday and now I've changed my plans for them. I can't think of a more delicious side with a good steak. Fantastic, Barbara, thanks for sharing this.

  13. I do love it! It looks insanely delicious! I love that it doesn't require making a crust. The moment I get a cool day I'm popping this beauty in the oven!

  17. That is just perfect Barbara. Utterly delicious. Needless to say, I have copied down the recipe already. Yum!

  18. I love these savory galettes. And your idea of the perfect summer dinner is mine as well. Do you have any tips on steaks? Ben is real picky and turns his nose up at anything not as soft as filet mignon, and filet mignon is pricey!

  19. I would love to dig right into this dish! Please tell me about the magazine that featured the recipe. I'm cooking magazineless at the moment but am tastily amusing myself going through old, really old, issues of Gourmet.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  20. I'm looking at your pictures and think I could eat it all. This is on crazy delicious looking summer dish!

  21. Your go to dinner is similar to mine which is salad, grilled meat, and corn. I would happily replace the corn with these gorgeous galettes though! I love the gruyere in there!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I guess it would be wrong to bake that, then tear off the top and eat it all, myself? Ahh, but I can't resist that crispy top. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Absolutely mouthwatering.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, that looks and sounds incredible, Barbara! I can just taste the flavors with the potato onion and gruyere all playing off each other. I have thyme in my garden that really needs using (I hate not using up my herbs!) and this looks perfect. That picture makes me want to start on it right now. ( :

  34. Barbara...I don't need steak to have a feast with the whole galette...alright, maybe a refreshing salad on the side.
    I make a pizza with these ingredients...now I should try it on a galette ;o)

    Have yourself a great weekend,
    Claudia

  37. Honestly, I firmly believe that potatoes and cheese should be in every recipe, ever.

    I should know better by now than to read your posts before lunch - this made my stomach growl! :)

    What a wonderful combination, the potato, onions and cheese.
    This does look so good and I want to make this. I bet the smell is divine too with the onions... yum.

  44. This is a really fabulous recipe and one I'm so glad you decided to feature. I love plain baked or roasted onions but you've taken them to a whole nother level. I really am going to enjoy this. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

  46. I am a potato and onion person but this is a lot more than just potatoes and onions. What a wonderful galette.

    Hoping your writs heals quickly and that you have a fantastic vacation, even though your activities are curtailed.

    With your positive attitude, I am sure you will have a wonderful time.
