TwD: Baking a Tomato & Cheese Galette with Julia


…”I’m here! I made it!”…the frantic food blogger yelled.

I almost forgot it was the third Tuesday in June. I almost forgot it was time for another round of Tuesdays with Dorie: Baking with Julia. I almost forgot but was luckily reminded by my fellow TwD: BwJ bloggers who post a day early (from my standpoint) because they live in Australia and New Zealand.

Seeing as I almost forgot but didn’t, I was lucky enough that this week’s assignment was this tomato and cheese galette. Lucky because I had a frozen disc of galette dough ready to go. Lucky because I just purchased fresh tomatoes today. Lucky because I had sliced mozzerella on hand, which would have to do instead of the shredded kind.

Overall, this galette was quick and tasty, like a ready-to-bake pizza except the ingredients were homemade and fresh. Again, I think the trick here is having the galette dough pre-made. That way, you don’t have to act as if you almost forgot something…like dinner. If you’d like to try this tomato & cheese galette, find the recipe at Jenny Bakes, this week’s blogger host!

    Yay, you made it! I was feeling rushed, but still had the weekend (so I can’t complain too much)…sometimes I wonder where the days/weeks/years go!!!
    This was a great recipe. I agree, having the galette dough pre-made would be good. And I do have the other portion of it in the freezer. Can’t wait to use it!

    I’ve been using commercial frozen pie crusts when I make a galette. I may have to try your idea of homemade frozen. This looks like a real family pleasing combo!
