KAW: Butternut Squash and Caramelized Onion Galette

leela4January 22, 2014

We were in WI for Christmas with DD1 and her family. The night we arrived, the 22nd, she made this. I couldn't wait to try it myself when we got home, so I invited friends over and had at it.
First the crust, made the day before:

All rolled out and pretty:

Then the onions:

The squash:

Sage:

One of my friends is sensitive to dairy, so I used this cheese instead of fontina:


All ready to go:

I forgot to take an after ''baked'' photo until one of my friends suggested it, but it had already been cut:

It was delicious, (if I do say so myself), but not quite as good as having it before Christmas, at DD's house, with 6 y/o twin grandchildren all excited about Christmas.
The recipe was adapted from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman.

If that's the recipe from Smitten Kitchen, I've made it for Thanksgiving the past 2 years (I am the vegetarian entree cook). I've also served it at a baby shower. It tastes every bit as good as it looks. Next time, I am going to add chopped walnuts on top.

The crust, with sour cream, is superbly flaky.

Enjoy! Sara

Oh, that looks yummy! I don't cook much squash because I don't know how to use it. This looks like a great way to add some into our menu, and DH will be thrilled it has all those nice onions.

Thanks for sharing!

I made this last night pretty much as the recipe instructed except I had plain Greek yogurt which I used in place of the sour cream. I am serving it this afternoon when some friends come over. It looks and smells wonderful and I think it will taste the same. Thanks for your post as I think I will be making this again!

That looks wonderful...and it reminded me of a lovely place in Paris that serves Gallettes and hard cider. Yum!

withoutanh-Oh, adding walnuts to the top sounds wonderful. I do love walnuts . . . I, too, am the vegetarian entree cook for any Thanksgiving dinner we go to so I thought this would be good for that as well.

I did tweak the original recipe some-mainly in the crust I used some spelt flour and used Wallaby European style sour cream, although I'm sure yogurt works just fine as well. I just looked at The Smitten Kitchen site and I sure wish my photos made my efforts look as good as hers do! (I guess that's why I'm not writing a recipe blog).

I'm always grateful when I see recipes (with photos!) on this site so I'm glad this was appreciated.

That looks luscious! I love Winter squash dishes but am not patient at cooking them!

I served mine this afternoon and it was wonderfully robust tasting and the pastry divine!

Oh my ... time to break out the food processor for the crust.

That looks amazing.

Finally making it--it's in the oven as I type!

I subbed a sprinkle of fresh thyme for the sage and dusted the squash with a scant bit of freshly grated nutmeg (and used way less cayenne!).

Smells yummy as it's baking! Will post some pics later!!!

cat_mom-I know what you mean. It's a little rich, but such a delicious combination of flavors and textures that's it's hard not to just keep eating it. Just a little sliver here, there . . .

Wow, these look good! That crust looks like it could hold a whole lot of different delicious things, too.
