Tomato Galette

It is fun to celebrate the tomato season and make this beautiful Tomato Galette although, it is fun to make at anytime during the year. You will find this recipe to be easy, delicious and beautiful! So get some ripe tomatoes and get going :)

Tomato Galette

1 pie crust
1 cup crumbled Feta Cheese
2 jalapeños, thinly sliced
2 medium tomatoes, sliced
1/8 teaspoon violet/black/kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll out the pie crust onto a baking sheet. Spread the feta cheese as the first layer, leaving about 2 inches of the crust edge, which will be used to fold around the tomatoes. Sprinkle the chopped jalapeños on top of the feta cheese. Arrange the tomato slices on top of the feta and jalapeños. Sprinkle the salt and black pepper. Gently fold the pie edges and place the galette in the oven for 40-45 minutes until the pie is golden brown. Serve warm or cold.

I love tomatoes so decided to add tomatoes and White Jasmine Cilantro Gouda this time, however, you can use different fillings or just use cheese.
