Ingredients

For the Dough

  • ½ cup salted butter frozen
  • 1.5 cups all purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • cup ice cold water (approximately, you may need more or less)

For the Filling

  • 5 shallots sliced
  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon plain breadcrumbs
  • 6 oz goat cheese
  • 3 tablespoon honey
  • 4 heirloom tomatoes sliced
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped
  • 1 large egg beaten

Instructions

For the Dough

  • Use a cheese grater to grate the frozen butter into a small bowl. Transfer the butter to the freezer to keep cold.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, salt and sugar. With butter ready and flour mixture prepared, fill a small glass with ice cold water.
  • When ready, whisk the frozen grated butter into the flour mixture until evenly distributed and resembling a crumbly, mealy texture. Slowly, 1 tablespoon at a time, begin to add the ice water to the dough, mixing until dough takes shape (you do not want it wet! but, you do not want it too dry, either).
  • Gather the dough in a ball and transfer to a clean, lightly floured work surface and roll into a round approximately 10-12 inches in diameter and 1/8" thick.
  • Transfer flattened round to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (you may need a buddy to help you here) and transfer baking sheet to the refrigerator to keep cool.

For the Filling

  • Heat a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add the olive oil and shallots and cook to caramelize the shallots, approximately 10-15 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
  • Slice the tomatoes and generously season both sides with salt and pepper.

Assemble

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Remove the rolled out dough from the refrigerator and sprinkle with the plain breadcrumbs, leaving a roughly 2" border along the edges. The breadcrumbs will help absorb some of the juices from the tomatoes and prevent the galette from becoming soggy.
  • Crumble the goat cheese over the bread crumbs, drizzle with honey and top with the caramelized shallots. Sprinkle with any remaining breadcrumbs.
  • Transfer the seasoned tomatoes and layer them over the top of the shallots and goat cheese, taking care not to over fill the galette.
  • Drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh thyme and rosemary.
  • Fold up the edges of the dough around the tomatoes, then brush the crust with the beaten egg.
  • Transfer to the oven to bake for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the crust is golden and the center is bubbling.
