Recipe Monday: Breakfast Gallette

Oops. I’m a day late, my apologies if you were looking forward to all the deliciousness I’ve been making lately!

Today’s recipe was something I found on A Cozy Kitchen here, via searching the top food blog’s on BlogLovin. It’s like a breakfast pizza, but with a crispier crust! Obviously, my recipe was slightly different, being vegetarian and all, and not having ricotta cheese at my parents’ home. But I made do, and it came out spectacular!

Ingredients you will need:


1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick bitter (non-melted)
1/4 cup water, ice cold


Shredded cheeses (Assorted)
3 large egg yolks
Salt and Pepper

Start off by mixing together flour and salt, then add to the freezer for 5 minutes (I personally don’t know why but I did it).

“Combine flour mixture and butter. Mix until you’re left with what resembles coarse meal, with pea size pieces of butter. Add ice water 1 Tbsp at a time, mixing until it just begins to clump together. If you pinch some of the crumbly dough and it holds together, it’s ready. If the dough doesn’t hold together, add a little more water and mix again”.

Now, take the dough out of the bowl and place on a baking sheet, in a small disc, then put in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Again, I don’t know why, but I did it, as following the directions.

Before taking it out, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. On a floured surface (I used the pre-used baking sheet), spread out the dough until it’s about evenly 1/4″ thick. It’s okay if the edges are shaggy and it’s not a perfect circle.

Start boiling your broccoli, or preferred vegetable about this time.

Sprinkle on your grated cheeses, and then fold the edges of dough over the cheese. Put back in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Whisk together 1 egg yolk and water. Take your dough out of the refrigerator and brush on the egg wash. Bake until crust is lightly golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Take galette out of the oven and gently place yolks atop cheese along with your pre-cooked broccoli, and allow to cook for 2-3 more minutes.

Take out, let cool, and voila. Garnish with some salt and pepper, or satiate your spice-tooth with some sweet and sour chili sauce, like my mother and I did!
