Fig and Brie Galette
Fig and Brie Galette is savory freeform tart with fresh figs and creamy brie and makes a perfect entertaining appetizer. We’re gettin’ figgy with it…
I’m on a fig kick because it’s fig season. A few days ago I made a grilled fig and prosciutto flatbread which was so delicious I wanted more figgy goodness and so a whole fig recipe was born. You also HAVE to check out these warm figs with goat cheese, pistachios and balsamic glaze.
A fig galette or tart, doesn’t always have to be sweet. This galette is made savory with creamy brie and where the figs are slightly sweet, they are perfect pairing. I served it with a side salad which made for the perfect lunch.
The crust is made with whole wheat flour to make it nutty and rich. The dough is then rolled out into a 12 inch circle and brie slices were arranged in the center, leaving 2 1/2 inch border.
The sliced figs are then arranged on top of the brie and the sides of the dough are folded over to meet the edge of the brie and figs. Egg wash is then brushed onto the edges so they brown and into the oven it goes.
