Savory galettes are one of our favorite go-to dinners, and for good reason: the rustic style of folding the dough around the filling means you don’t have to stress about pie perfection. Thinly slicing the butternut squash means you can cook it quickly on the stovetop instead of roasting it in the oven. As it cooks, the onions will soften, releasing their natural sweetness. The result is a flavorful veggie filling packed into a tender golden crust, topped with blue cheese for added savoriness. Brushing the crust with heavy cream will help create a nice golden finish.
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 onion, sliced
1 butternut squash (about 1½ pounds), cut into ⅛-inch-thick slices
kosher salt and black pepper
2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage leaves
1 basic flaky piecrust
1 tablespoon heavy cream
½ cup crumbled blue cheese (2 ounces)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 small head frisée
Sat fat 14g
How to Make It
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, squash, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, 8 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the sage; let cool.
Line a baking sheet with parchment. Roll the piecrust on a floured surface into a 12-inch circle; place on the prepared baking sheet. Top the piecrust with the squash and onion mixture, leaving a clear 2-inch border. Fold the edges of the piecrust over and toward the center, overlapping slightly and partially covering the squash. Chill until the dough is firm, at least 20 minutes and up to 1 hour.
Heat oven to 350° F with a rack set in the lowest position. Brush the piecrust with the cream. Bake until the squash is cooked through and the crust is golden, 45 to 55 minutes. Top with the blue cheese.
Meanwhile, whisk together the oil, vinegar, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the frisée and toss to combine. Serve the galette with the salad.
