  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • 2
    Remove pie crust from refrigerator and thaw 10 minutes on a pizza stone or parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  • 3
    In the meantime, pour olive oil into a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions to the skillet. In a separate medium skillet, cook bacon slices until they reach desired crispiness. Saute onions until lightly brown, then add spinach and cook until just wilted.
  • 4
    Place onion-spinach mixture in a colander to remove excess olive oil, then place mixture in a medium bowl. Crumble bacon and add to onion-spinach mixture and combine.
  • 5
    Roll out dough, on baking sheet, into a large, thin circle, about 12 inches in diameter. Sprinkle half of the cheese onto the dough.
  • 6
    Place the bacon-spinach-onion mixture in a mound in the center of the dough, spreading it about 8 inches wide. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  • 7
    Fold edges of galette over, pleating as you go along. Place galette in oven and bake 30-40 minutes, or until dough is a golden brown. Slice and serve.

More About This Recipe
  • Some things are worth celebrating with food – like birthdays, holidays or the anniversary of when you found a dollar on the ground (hey, nothing is too small to be celebrated with food).

    On most of these occasions, we either make sweet desserts or painstakingly tedious meals. For me, I could do without another cupcake, and the thought of a tower of dishes just for a nice, home-cooked meal almost takes all the fun out of celebrating.

    So when I want something savory and delicious – but very easy to make – for a special meal, I opt for this Bacon-Spinach Galette. It’s equally savory and buttery, and takes less than an hour from concept to table. That, to me, is something to celebrate!

    What is a galette, you ask? It’s something of a rustic tart or pie, and is made with a lot of butter. You can make your own pastry dough (a favorite homemade pie crust works well for this) or you can go with the shortcut by using Pillsbury refrigerated pie dough, which works just as well. Then, just fill the crust with your desired fillings. For me, that includes crunchy bacon, sautéed fresh spinach, caramelized onions and a generous helping of shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

    In any case, galettes are meant for those who don’t want to take the time making their crust look dainty and pretty – you just fold over your edges onto part of your filling, leaving a hole in the center, and that’s that.

    And despite all that lack of effort, the taste is out of this world. There are few things better than a savory mix of ingredients combined with the taste of a buttery, flaky crust. It’s a great way to celebrate any occasion -- even if that occasion is just making a delicious dinner.
