This rustic recipe has been a favorite of mine since my long-time friend and goat cheese lover, Helen Jackson, gave it to me a few years ago. It makes a great vegetarian dinner or side dish and shows off how versatile cooking with fresh chèvre can be. Tip: do use a mandoline for slicing vegetables if you have one—this recipe is best when the vegetables are sliced very thin.
Redwood Hill Farm’s Smoked Cheddar goat cheese knocks it out of the park in a grilled cheese sandwich! Use your favorite hearty bread from a local bakery if you can. I used Full Circle Baking Company’s organic “Powerbread” with Walnuts, Almonds and Raisins. ~ from Nancy Lorenz

If you see plump ripe tomatoes hanging on the vine, seize the moment of the tomato!
Local Sonoma County cookbook author and Press Democrat columnist Michele Anna Jordan knows how to make the most of the season. Tomatoes, bacon and our goat cheese aged cheddar peeking out of a toasty galette-style crust– how can you go wrong?
Note: For instructions on making the galette dough, click here.
When food author Michele Anna Jordan’s students tell her they can’t make dough, she often uses this recipe to teach them how. “It’s mostly lack of confidence that gets in the way of a good dough. As long as you use chilled butter, cold water and don’t overwork the mixture, you should have excellent results every time.” says Michele.
Use this recipe for Michele’s Tomato Galette with Bacon.
For sweet galettes, see the variation at the end of this recipe.
Variation: For sweet galettes, use 1/4 teaspoon salt and add 1 teaspoon sugar at the same time.
This is a great weeknight dinner recipe, or for any time you’re short on time. Have it in the oven in 10 minues, then sit back and relax!
