Deciding what to bring to a picnic always stumps me. This Savory Butternut Squash Galette fulfilled my desire for something practical, yet fun (and most importantly, yummy).
While it was indeed delicious, it turned out to be very messy to eat with hands on a rocking boat. Nevertheless, this is a great recipe if you have a free afternoon (and forks and plates).
What sets this galette apart is the crust. The ground walnuts add texture while the brown sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness to an otherwise savory galette.
The butternut squash filling was inspired by the butternut squash I had lying around. Since it’s in season right now, I stocked up and have been looking for different ways to cook (and bake) it.
I felt like the filling needed something more, though. While browsing recipes, I found this great recipe for Balsamic Caramelized Onions.
When it came to putting the galette together, I added the butternut squash in layers and sprinkled a pinch of thyme over each layer. Even though I didn’t add it to the recipe, I added some freshly grated Parmesan that I had lying around as well.
