The Perfect Galette - 224/365
Ever since he accidentally invented the Blueberry Crêpecake, Mr. Wild Dingo has had a hankerin' for a galette. So he did what he always does: obsess over finding just the right crêpe pan and make me buy it. Like he had to twist my arm? After a few weeks of trial and error, he's perfected the perfect galette stuffed with two eggs sunny side up, lightly toasted prosciutto, and cheese. But I keep telling him he needs to practice more so I can compare and critique each week.
By nature, galettes are gluten free because they're made with buckwheat. But some recipes mix in a regular flower because buckwheat by itself can be very stiff and not so tastey. We bought this crepe pan from Staub. It's heavy but does a very nice job.
Here is the recipe for Buckwheat Galette:
Yield: 10 to 12 crêpes. Although we found this yields a lot less, especially when learning to make crepes.
We fill the crepe with eggs over easy, lightly toasted prociutto and grated cheese (he likes Parmesean, I like Mozzerella) in the middle. The corners pinch well if the crepe is fresh off the pan. Otherwise, you can simply fold over 4 sides and place a plate over it so it stays folded until ready to eat. It does take a few weeks to get a good handle on how thick to make the crepe and how to fold them.
Of course the cracker and the criminal each get their own galette. It's Sunday brunch afterall.
