Tomato Sausage Galette

A Taste of Summer
However you pronounce it-tis the season for all things tomato 
In honor of National Bastille Day how about a Galette?  
Tomato Galette
Cook's notes: A galette is a savory rustic tart with hand-folded edges often found in French cuisine. This recipe was adapted from BHG Taste Summer Tomato 2016 and serves 4. Omit the sausage to be a vegetarian dish. A prepackaged pie crust can be substituted for a homemade crust.

  • 1 traditional/regular pie crust rolled to a 10 inch circle (about the size of a dinner plate) 
  • 3 TB. fine dry bread crumbs mixed with 1 TB. Italian herbs (use a food processor for this step) 
  • 1-1/4 cups crumbled cooked Italian sausage 
  • 3 medium tomatoes, sliced and 1/4 cup yellow cherry tomatoes, diced 
  • Sea salt 
  • 1/3 cup red bell pepper, finely diced 
  • 3 TB. snipped basil leaves 
  • 1/2 cup shallots, diced 
  • Crumbled semi-soft goat cheese 
  • Grated Parmesan cheese 
  • Egg wash (whisk one egg with 1 tsp. water) 
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 
  • Slice tomatoes and place on a paper towel. Sprinkle tomatoes with sea salt and let sit 20 minutes. 
  • Line a pizza baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • Roll crust out on a floured piece of wax paper. Transfer crust to parchment paper. 
  • Sprinkle with bread crumbs mixed with Italian herbs, leaving a 2 inch border. 
  • Layer tomatoes, peppers, shallots and sausage if adding to galette. Grate Parmesan over the mixture.
  • Fold crust over filling, pleating as necessary and leaving some filling exposed in the center. 
  • Crumble goat cheese over the top. 
  • Brush on egg wash over exposed crust. Grate more Parmesan cheese over the crust. 
  • Bake 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 400 degrees and bake 20 minutes. Last 5 minutes add in snipped basil leaves. 
  • Let pan with galette cool on a wire rack before cutting with a serrated knife or pastry wheel.
