Potato Asiago & Caramelized Onion Galette

"But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.” 

Butter and cheese and potatoes. My interest has already piqued, has yours? Imagine if you will a golden flaky crust, flecked with delicate morsels of Grana Padano. Within this crust sits caramelized onions infused with sage and cooked down in white wine. Then, a generous sprinkling of crushed raw garlic. Next the thin slices of potatoes, salted and peppered. Followed by shredded Asiago, a dusting of lemon zest, and a few more scattered onions. 

The ingredients are simple and yet create such a wealth of savory flavors. I like to serve it with a bit more fresh time and lemon zest to brighten what is undeniably a rich dish. But allow me this indulgence. It is fall after all. And besides, Simon and I ate this with a light salad of mixed greens. 

Potato Asiago & Caramelized Onion Galette

Serves 6-8
For the Dough
  • 1 stick (cold) unsalted butter
  • 1 & 1/3 cups flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • pinch sugar
  • ¼ cup grated Grana Padano or Parmesan
  • 1/3 cups ice water (only add as much as needed)
For the Filling
  • White wine caramelized onions (recipe follows)
  • 2 small (about 1 lb.) Yukon Gold potatoes sliced thin (I used a mandolin)
  • 3 Tbsp. butter with 1 Tbsp. cream (cream is optional)
  • 1 ¼ cups grated Asiago
  • 5 sprigs of thyme, leaves removed from stems
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Zest from one small lemon
  • Salt and pepper
  • One egg, beaten
For the Caramelized Onions
  • 1 small white onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped sage
  • ¼ tsp. of sugar
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • Salt to taste
Make the Dough
Can be made ahead and refrigerated for a day or two
  1. Grate the butter into a small bowl and place in the freezer for about 8-10 min.
  2. In a large bowl mix flour, salt, sugar, and cheese.
  3. When the butter is nice and cold, mix into the flour with a pastry cutter (I 100% used my hands and just worked quickly so as not to melt the butter).
  4. When the mixture begins to clump together, slowly add water. Only add as much as needed to form a ball! Start with ¼ cup and increase as you mix. You don’t want a wet dough.
  5. On a floured surface shape ball into a disc and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for an hour before using.
Meanwhile Make the Onions
*Takes about 45 minutes
  1. Heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add in onions and stir frequently so they can brown but not burn. Adjust the heat as necessary.
  3. After about 20 minutes add sugar and season with a bit of salt.
  4. Continue cooking and stirring until onions are a deep golden brown. This can take about 45 minutes but they could go for an hour. Just don’t wander away and leave them unattended, they can stick and burn.
  5. When the onions have acquired that nice deep golden tan, add in the wine and cook for about 2-3 minutes, until the liquid has evaporated.
  6. Set aside to cool before assembling the galette.
Assemble the Galette
  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. Lay out a large sheet of parchment paper on your work surface.
  3. Remove dough from refrigerator and with a lightly floured rolling pin, roll out dough into a somewhat circle-shape (doesn’t need to be perfect) about 1/8 in. thick.
  4. Place about ½ of the onions in the center of the dough, followed by all of the garlic, and about ½ of the potato slices. Leave about a 1 ½ to 2 in. border. See photos above.
  5. Lightly season with salt and pepper and top with ½ of the cheese and thyme.
  6. Drizzle with ½ of the butter mixture.
  7. Follow with the rest of the potatoes, more salt and pepper, the remaining onions*, cheese and thyme and lemon zest.
  8. Folded the edges of the dough over, brush with egg wash, and bake for about 45-50 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Let cool for about 5-10 minutes before serving.
Serve with white wine and some mixed greens tossed in olive oil, lemon juice, and a little red wine vinegar.
  • I think this is most likely best eaten the same day, but I have some leftovers I plan on eating later so I’ll update you on how it held up!
  • You can really use any kind of cheese you’d like for this but I love the flavor of Asiago.
  • You’ll note I have onions on the top of my galette. They burned just a bit and I would probably put them under the last layer of cheese next time.
  • For the caramelized onions you can definitely skip the wine, but I do think it adds such wonderful flavor!

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
