This Butternut Squash Galette is your new favorite way to eat squash. Sweet butternut squash paired with caramelized onions, blue cheese crumbles, and prosciutto baked into an easy, flaky pastry crust. Top it with crispy sage and a brown butter sauce for the win!
I’d like to introduce you to my new favorite way to eat squash. Meet my good food friend, Butternut Squash Galette. The pleasure will be all yours, I assure you.
But in all seriousness, this savory galette is crazy good. You probably know by now that I get all starry eyed for galettes – easier than pie, and all that good crust, which if I’m honest, is mostly why I ever eat any sort of pie. It’s all about the crust.
On Sunday at church, three different people asked me what exciting new recipe I’d be posting for Thanksgiving. I ho-hummed my answer because I hadn’t actually had any great Thanksgiving ideas. In fact, I had tried to get my family to agree to skipping the traditional Thanksgiving meal and just buying some pot pies from Costco.
I’m not proud of it. It was a low moment.
Luckily, even though I got all the adults on board (that part was easy because then no one had to cook), the kids were a harder sell. When they got wind of the plans, three of my four actually cried. No Turkey? No Mashed Potatoes? I was ruining Thanksgiving and they weren’t going to let me forget it.
Well, okay then. Back to the drawing board.
By Sunday night, my kids’ pestering and the promptings from church friends had me pulling my act together. Testing butternut squash galettes was exactly what I needed to get into holiday mode.
And this recipe was just the thing to kick me out of my Thanksgiving-scrooge mood. Don’t underestimate the power of a flaky pastry crust stuffed with squash, prosciutto, blue cheese, caramelized onions, and crispy brown butter sage. It’s a fool proof mood booster.
Now, with this Butternut Squash Galette taken care of, I just need to pick a turkey brine and figure out the rest of the menu.
Mom is always in charge of the mashed potatoes and the rolls, but I’m thinking this Fresh Cranberry Apple Farro Salad will sit nicely between this Butternut Squash Galette and my favorite Roasted Lemon Pepper Brussels Sprouts.
Are you adding anything new to your Thanksgiving menu this year? Tell me what you’re eating!
