Tomato Galette Breakfast
  • 1/2   cup   cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 1/2   cups   all-purpose flour
  • 1/3   cup   shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1    teaspoon   cracked black pepper
  • 4 - 6    tablespoons   cold water
  • 4      large heirloom tomatoes, cored (about 2 pounds)
  • 1    teaspoon   kosher salt
  • 3    tablespoons   fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1      large shallot, very thinly sliced (1/2 cup)
  • 2    teaspoons   fresh thyme leaves
  • 4 - 6    ounces   goat or feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1      egg, lightly beaten
  • 1    tablespoon   water
  • 2 - 3    tablespoons   snipped or small leaves fresh basil
In a large bowl cut butter into flour with a pastry blender until pieces are pea-size*. Stir in Parmesan and cracked pepper. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of cold water over part of the mixture; toss with a a fork. Push moistened dough to the side of the bowl. Repeat, using 1 tablespoon of the water at a time, until all of the dough is moistened. Form dough into a disk, wrap with plastic wrap and chill at least 30 minutes or until easy to handle (up to 24 hours).
Slice the tomatoes about 1/4-inch thick and arrange on a cooling rack over a pan, sink, or paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and let drain for 30 minutes.
On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 13-inch circle (don't worry if it's not perfectly round). Fold in half and carefully transfer to a large baking sheet lined with parchment papert; unfold.
Evenly spread bread crumbs on pastry, leaving about a 2-inch border. Layer tomatoes, shallot, thyme and goat cheese on bread crumbs. Fold crust over filling, pleating as necessary and leaving some filling exposed in center. Combine egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush on edges of pastry.
Bake in a 375 degrees F oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is browned and crisp. Cool at least 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Sprinkle with basil and cut into 8 wedges.
  • *Food processor Method: The first step can be done in the food processor. Place steel blade in food processor bowl; add flour and butter. Cover and process with on/off turns until pieces are pea-size. Add Parmesan and pepper; process with on/off turns just until combined. Transfer to bowl and proceed as above.
