Caramelised Onion, Potato & Three Cheese Galette

Caramelised Onion, Potato & Three Cheese Galette

"This comforting galette is spiked with the rich sweetness of caramelised onions through the layers of potato, wrapped up in a flaky pastry and served with the crisp freshness of sliced red onion and parsley salad to add a lovely contrast", says Chef Tom Walton.




2 brown onions, finely sliced

2 tbsp olive oil

2 large Desiree potatoes, thinly sliced

3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

2 tbsp chopped thyme

½ cup cheddar, grated

1/3 cup parmesan, grated

½ cup mozzarella, grated

Salt, pepper

1 30cm square shortcrust pastry, slightly frozen

1 egg



1 red onion, finely sliced

Large handful parsley leaves, picked

Splash fresh lemon juice

2.Give this a good stir, then place over a medium heat, cover with a lidand let them cook for 3 minutes until they begin to sweat and soften. Then stir and replace the lid, continuing to cook for 3 more minutes before removing the lid and continuing to cook for 10-15 minutes until they begin to caramelise and become golden but still soft. Set aside.

3.Combine the thinly sliced potato, ¾ of the caramelised onion, butter, thyme and a little salt and pepper. Set aside.

4.Place the pastry onto a large piece of baking paper. Lay over half the potato mix, leaving a 3cm border around theoutside to spread over half the cheese followed by the remaining potato. Add in the remaining cheese and the reserved caramelised onions.

When ready to serve, cut the tart into desired pieces.Salad1.Combine the red onion, parsley leaves, a squeeze of lemon, splash of olive oil and a little seasoning, serving this with the galette.
