Take-out Tuesday, Anything Goes Galette

If you find your refrigerator has a little of this, and a little of that, but not enough of anything to stand alone, a galette is a great way to stretch things into a whole additional meal


I had a little corn, some fresh spinach and frozen artichoke hearts


Anything goes here, and throw in some bacon for extra likeability  🐷


Start by frying the bacon,  if you cut it into small pieces you can stir it instead of having to flip the strips individually, and it cooks a little faster


Remove bacon to paper towels, pour off all but 2 T bacon grease,  and saute chopped onion until soft

You can also use leftover ham, chicken or turkey, starting by sauteing the onion in a little olive oil and butter and then add the meat later after the vegetables are done

Add garlic and cook for 1 minute


Once garlic is fragrant, saute vegetables


I did the artichoke hearts first, to get some color on them


Season with salt and pepper


Add fresh spinach last and cover with a lid for a few minutes until it cooks down


Add bacon {or ham or turkey} back to vegetables


A galette is similar to a quiche, just minus the eggs


I like to “paint” the bottom of the pie crust with a little flavor, you can use alfredo sauce as pictured, or mayonnaise, mustard, whatever will blend with your vegetable flavors


Add your veggies, top with a tasty cheese and fold edges in over filling


Bake at 350 for 35- 45 minutes

    Jenna, your galette looks delicious! This sounds like a good way to use up those bits of leftovers in the frig and I know Jim would enjoy this. These days it’s hard to come up with a meal we aren’t all tired of! When are you going to publish all these wonderful recipes in a cookbook, you should!

  4. We used to call dinner like this a “Thisa-and-Thata” meal — a little of this and a little of that! And oh, the best. This looks like a good combination. Thanks for reminding me about the magic of the pot pie concept in an easier way!

  5. What time is dinner, Jenna? This looks delicious and easy, because I closed the kitchen for a few days, or at least I said so. But, that never happens! Thanks for a great idea for tonight!

  6. Jodi says:

    And just like that… Yum!

  7. What a delicious way to use up leftovers! YUM!

  8. Jenna, this recipe is brilliant, and would be the perfect dinner on Friday Night while watching Hallmark movies. I love this idea, and I’ll try it once the kids are out for Christmas break.


  9. This looks so good and not hard at all. Thanks, I need some new ideas and I love easy ones.

    Jenna, I’ve done an ‘anything goes’ frittata but not a galette! So much easier and quicker! Bacon is a must πŸ™‚

  11. That’s a really great idea. I always have a little of this and a little of that. More often than not, it all winds up in the trash. Of course, now I have to remember to keep some pie crusts around! I think a quiche may be the way to go for us though (especially since we have chickens), so I’m off to check out your post for that one! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the idea and inspiration.

    • ha, of course, the chickens! Here’s an easy way to remember how to make quiche, use 4-5 eggs, 1 cup milk or half and half and anything else you like! Oh and season well with salt and pepper to spark up all those eggs!
