A galette is a freeform flat pastry crust - like a pie. We've filled this one with mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, bacon, and asparagus. Perfect as an appetizer or light dinner meal.
Step by Step Directions
Combine flour, salt, ground red pepper in a bowl. Cut in butter and cream cheese with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water and vinegar with a fork just until flour is moistened. Shape dough into a ball. Flatten slightly. Wrap in plastic food wrap; refrigerate 30 minutes.
Cook bacon in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until crisply cooked. Remove from pan; drain on paper towel. Reserve 1 tablespoon bacon grease in the pan. Return pan to heat; add asparagus and mushrooms. Cook 3 minutes, or until asparagus is crisply tender. Add tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. Cook 2-3 minutes until liquid is almost gone. Remove from heat; set aside.
Heat oven to 425°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll out dough on the prepared baking sheet into a 12-inch circle (edges can be ragged). Sprinkle dough with 1/3 cup goat cheese, leaving a 2-inch border around edge. Sprinkle bacon and Gruyere cheese on top of goat cheese. Spoon vegetable mixture on top. Fold edge over filling, leaving middle uncovered. Brush edge of crust with egg wash.
Bake 18-22 minutes until crust is golden brown. Remove from oven; let cool on pan 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with additional goat cheese, as desired.
