Fig and Brie Galette
Fig and Brie Galette is savory freeform tart with fresh figs and creamy, melted cheese. This rustic tart makes a perfect entertaining appetizer. Look at all of those juicy figs! Now, we’re gettin’ figgy with it…
I’m on a fig kick because it’s they are in season. A few days ago I made a grilled fig and prosciutto flatbread which was so delicious I wanted more figgy goodness and so this 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/31 cm 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.
