Ingredients to make Ricotta, Balsamic Mushroom and Bacon Galette

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp cold butter, diced
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tsp Apple Cider vinegar
  • 1 cup Ricotta (I used Mooz Ricotta)
  • salt and freshly ground Black pepper
  • 3 tbsp olive Oil, divided
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups, Button mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup of spinach Leaves
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 cup chicken Sausages, chopped
  • 3 rashers of Bacon, chopped into fine pieces
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

How to make Ricotta, Balsamic Mushroom and Bacon Galette

  1. Pulse all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour and salt in a food processor to combine. Add butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  2. Transfer mixture to a large bowl, drizzle with apple cider vinegar and ice water. Mix with a fork and add more water, if required. Lightly knead the dough, pat into a disk and wrap in plastic. Chill for at least 1 hour.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 200°C. Season Ricotta with salt and pepper and set aside.
  4. Heat a large pan (do not add oil in this step). Wash the spinach leaves and add them to the hot pan, while wet with ¼ tsp salt. Let them scorch for a minute and place them aside.
  5. Heat a tbsp. of olive oil in a large pan and sautee mushrooms in balsamic vinegar and with a pinch of salt until 70% cooked. Place it aside.
  6. Heat a tbsp. of olive oil in the same pan and cook garlic, until fragrant for about 30 seconds. Add the chopped sausages and turn off the gas after they are 70% cooked.
  7. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured sheet of parchment to a 14 inch round about 1/8th inch thick. Transfer on parchment to a baking sheet.
  8. Spread 3/4th of the ricotta over dough, leaving a 1/2 inch border. Top with mushrooms, then spinach, sausages, chopped bacon rashers and some more ricotta. Bring edges of dough up and over filling, overlapping, to create a ½ inch border.
  9. Brush with egg. Bake galette, until crust is golden brown and cooked through, about 35 minutes. Let cool slightly on baking sheet.
  10. Sprinkle lemon juice and remaining 1 tbsp olive oil over the galette just prior to serving.

My Tip:

It's always best to use dairy products (butter being an exception) and eggs at room temperature as it increases the volume of the product.
