Butternut Squash and Caramelized Onion Galette

Butternut squash is one of the foods I associate with fall.  When it’s August and I don’t want summer to end I can think… well, at least there is butternut squash.

So I knew that I had to try this recipe.  Dough is pretty easy to make and comes together relatively quickly.  IMG_4185

Sometimes I don’t like having to cut in butter- (especially when I’m feeling lazy) but it didn’t seem so bad.  The dough needs to cool in the fridge for at least an hour- so plan accordingly.

Remember when I said I was feeling lazy?  I picked this up at Costco and used it instead of peeling and slicing my own squash.  IMG_4189

mmm… roasted butternut squash…IMG_4191

Those get mixed together with some fontina cheese and thyme (or sage).  Roll out your dough so there is about a two inch overhang.   Thankfully a rustic edge looks fine.  I cut this recipe in half, so if you made the whole thing, the edges would be hanging over the pan.  IMG_4196

Fold the edges up and pinch to pleat and seal.  Brush with an egg wash and pop in the oven.  IMG_4197

I made a mistake and baked it a little too hot- but it was still delicious.

This is my new favorite dish from this book.  Will definitely make again.  It is really…. really good.

The recipe is also posted on her blog.  Try it for yourself!  You won’t be sorry!

    I want to try this. The photos are beautiful. I made the sausage potato soup from the website and it was delicious but I didn’t get enough decent photos to post.
