The Breakfast Galette is a simple pastry crust filled with all the best breakfast fixings and topped with soft yolk eggs.
Calling all breakfast lovers!
I've been dreaming up this Breakfast Galette recipe for a few months and I'm happy to report that it is now a dream come true. A delicious Breakfast Galette is what every weekend needs.
First, the best and easiest pastry crust that I've been perfecting for years now. Don't be intimidated, really. This is a pasty crust for even a kitchen beginner. I stand behind it completely! It's quick and simple to make, with just a handful of ingredients. It's much easier to work with than pie crust - not nearly so finicky. And it's crispy and flaky the way a perfect pastry crust should be. But that's just the beginning.
The crust is where all the feasty goodness starts, but let's talk about the layers:
- First, a layer of ricotta mixed with freshly grated Parmesan, garlic, and oregano.
- Next, two generous handfuls of mixed greens (kale, spinach, and chard), because this is breakfast after all.
- And then the good stuff: sauteed bell peppers and onions, green chile, and sausage.
- Followed by a sprinkling of Monterrey Jack Cheese.
- Then get ready to finish it all with soft yolk eggs.
- Finally, add those finishing touches and sprinkle with freshly cracked pepper and drizzle with your favorite hot sauce.
I'm telling you, you really do need a slice of this.
This isn't difficult to make and you can definitely have have it done, start to finish, in about an hour. Still, it's probably more of a weekend or brunch kind of recipe. I say that largely because of the butter and the cheese. But there is a generous helping of greens, which helps tip the scale a little bit back towards healthy. I've long believed in the balancing powers of greens. A handful of kale can make a lot of wrongs right, at least in my kitchen.
The real point here, though, is that this Breakfast Galette is absolutely delicious. It's the savory breakfast pastry that will satisfy all your weekend breakfast and brunch needs. I'm mean seriously. Just take a look at this:
My favorite part, though, is soft yolk eggs. When you slice the galette, the warm egg yolk spreads and this Breakfast Galette becomes absolutely heavenly.
