Delicata squash galette

delicata squash galette // a thousand threads
Delicata squash and apple cider vinegar are, without a doubt, two of my favorite food groups… I tell Mark I’m making up for lost time with salt and vinegar chips I never had or wouldn’t touch as a kid when he starts giving me the side eye for hogging the pop chips.

If properly covered and roasted in a tasty salt and vinegar rub, I think I’d eat a sock… and delicata squash is basically candy.

So the sweet, salty, vinegary combination in this galette is just the fix.

… especially since it’s wrapped in my other two favorite food groups: flour and butter.

Delicata squash galette

1 full recipe patee brisee (I like Martha’s, but use your favorite)
1 medium yellow onion, cut in to ¼” thick slices
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 delicata squash, halved lengthwise, seeds removed, cut in to 1/2” thick slices
2 tablespoons pure apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 lemon, juice and zest
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon thyme
2 teaspoons salt (to taste)
Soft goat cheese
Cracked pepper
1 egg plus 2 tablespoons milk or cream

Prep pate brisee, form into two disks and chill, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, in fridge.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Caramelize onions with butter and brown sugar in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat.

Add the sliced squash and vinegar. Cook over medium-low heat until squash begins to soften and brown. Add remaining ingredients, cook until liquid is reduced and squash is soft.

Remove patee brisee from fridge. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one dough half into a circle about the size of your sauté pan. Spoon half your cooked squash into the center of the dough and fold in the edges, securing tightly at each crease. Mix egg wash (egg + milk or cream) and brush over dough. Top center of galette with crumbled goat cheese and cracked pepper.

Place in the oven to bake for 35-40 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly. Remove from the oven and let set for 10 minutes. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.
