Zucchini & Caramelized Onion Galette

Once again, it is time for the Secret Recipe Club reveal day! This month I had Ellie from The Bitchin’ Kitchen. She had a bunch of delicious recipes. She is a food blogger from Hoboken, NJ. I am still planning on making her Jalapeno Popper Cupcakes!

I chose to make Ellie’s Zucchini & Caramelized Onion Galette this month. This recipe is great if you have guest, everybody can slice their own piece. While making mine, I accidently doubled the amount of butter in my galette crust, so my dish was VERY butter- yet still delicious! I also used provolone instead of fontina cheese, because I am a broke college student… If you are still trying to get ride of your garden zucchinis I definitely recommend this recipe. And for all of you who don’t have zucchinis, I have finally finished mine so we don’t have to worry about any more zucchini recipes!

  3. Too much butter in a crust is definitely not a problem. 😛 This looks really good – and I’m not even much of a zucchini fan!

    I just finished using up my last zucchini too! I wish I would have seen this last week though, it sounds amazing! I wonder if I could do this with roasted butternut or pumpkin? Thanks for sharing!!

  23. Great pick! This galette looks so tasty! And I personally love the crust!:)

  24. Oh the browned cheese on there looks so good! I love that this is a hearty meatless option too. YUM!

  25. This might just be my dream come true. My two absolute favorite veggies, zucchini & caramelized onions (they’ve GOT to be caramelized) plus provolone and feta cheese? You’re killing me! I need this now.

  26. Trisha says:

    Good Morning! Just wanted to let you know that I tried out your recipe and wrote a review on my personal blog. I actually veganized it. Hopefully you won’t mind, we changed a few things to the recipe for more flavor since we took out all the cheese (always different flavor when you do that). It was a great recipe, thanks for the fun!

  33. Genki Kitty says:

    Oops, I forgot to mention the site so you can see the vegan version – genkikitty.wordpress.com.

  34. This looks really good. Glad you chose it for SRC and I went to The Bitchin Kitchen to check it out. I may have to make this tonight. Hope you will check out mine…..http://permanentposies.com/2011/11/creamy-banana-nut-cake-with-vanilla-bean-frosting/
