  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/2 cup of ice-cold water
  • 2 cups of fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup of grated Gruyère cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)


  1. Start by making the galette dough. In a food processor, combine the all-purpose flour and cubed cold butter. Pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Add salt and gradually pour in the ice-cold water while pulsing. Continue to pulse until the dough comes together.
  3. Shape the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  5. Add sliced mushrooms and thyme leaves. Cook until the mushrooms are tender and any liquid has evaporated. Season with salt and black pepper. Remove from heat and let it cool.
  6. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  7. Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface into a circle. Transfer it to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  8. Sprinkle half of the grated Gruyère cheese over the dough, leaving a border around the edges.
  9. Spread the sautéed mushroom mixture over the cheese, and then sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
  10. Fold the edges of the dough over the filling, creating a rustic border.
  11. Brush the edges of the galette with beaten egg for a golden finish.
  12. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the galette is golden brown.
  13. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before slicing and serving.
