Recipe Box, Zucchini & Corn Galette

This crazy good galette,

a galette is a free form pie,

is full of summer zucchini and corn

This is a short version of my Zucchini, Garlic & Gruyere Galette

Not only did I get a late start on supper,

I didn’t have a head of garlic to roast,

so I devised a shortcut for caramelized onions and roasted garlic

You can quickly caramelize onions

by cooking and stirring them over medium high heat

in butter and olive oil with a pinch of sugar

You have to keep a close eye on them,

because the sugar accelerates the caramelization,

and they need a fairly constant stirring

Once they turn golden, reduce heat to medium,

toss in minced garlic and cook and stir for another minute

Your house will smell amazing!

Place these dreamy onions on the center of a pie crust dough round,

leaving a generous 1 inch border

Add the corn and 1/2 of the cheese

Now top with the zucchini and remaining cheese

Fold up the edge, making pleats in the dough as you go around the circle

Bake until golden and melty and enjoy!
