Flo Braker’s Cheese and Tomato Galette uses the same cornmeal and sour cream dough as the Crunchy Summer Fruit Galette we did last summer.  The dough was still as sticky as I remembered, but I rolled and formed it directly on the parchment I used for baking, so I didn’t tear my hair out. 

The recipe specifies the filling as tomatoes, basil, mozzarella and jack, but you can play around with the herbs and melting cheeses.  You can see I used dill in lieu of basil, and while I did have mozz in here, I used a more flavorful washed rind cow cheese instead of Monterey jack.  Also, I sprinkled a little s&p on the tomatoes because I like them seasoned. When I turned my galette in the oven, I noticed the tomatoes had given off some liquid.  I just tipped it out with a spoon so it wouldn’t make my tart watery.

I split this with my husband– it’s little.  With a salad and a glass of wine, it was a nice summery dinner.  I have an extra round of dough in the freezer, so I’ll make this one again.

  2. I like that you can pretty much use any topping you want with these. Yours looks good, great photos!

  3. looks beautiful! I’m hoping to have some tomatoes from the garden soon to bake with

  4. Beautiful! Maybe I should have baked mine a little longer – love the coloring of your galette.

  5. That looks so good!

  6. the dough was definitely sticky and i blame the recipe instructions for that. next time, i am adding the water last, a tablespoon at a time. your galette looks beautiful!

  7. Beautiful galette! It really is a good recipe. And yes, a sticky dough….but I was so impressed with how nice of a crust it made. I can’t wait to try different fillings.

  8. Yes – rolling it on the parchment was definitely a stress mitigator.
    Very pretty

  9. It looks great. I roasted my tomatoes so they wouldn’t get watery, and that seemed to work okay!

  10. My second round of dough is about to become an appetizer for a party tomorrow night! Love the versatility!

  11. Your galette looks great Steph – I agree that this would have made a lovely meal for two.

  12. Yours even looks artistic with the centre piece of tomato! We also liked this one, and I used a couple of different toppings.

  13. What a lovely idea to use dill instead of basil! I’ve never considered dill and tomatoes, but it sounds lovely.

  14. Your photos are beautiful. What kind of camera do you use? I’m shopping around for a new one.

  15. Perfectly done! I rolled mine out on parchment, too….so much easier than trying to transfer it 🙂

  16. Your galette looks great. You are right about it being small. It would make a great dinner for two or an appetizer for four.
