I love baking pies but when it comes to posting the recipe I hesitate a little. It is understood that making a pie crust from scratch can be tricky at times, buying a ready-made pie crust sounds much easier right? But this Sausage Caramelized Onion Galette tastes the best if homemade pie crust was used.

As for my recipe, here you go!
- **For the dough:
- ¾ tablespoon sugar
- 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup unsalted butter cut into cubes (must be chilled)
- 2 tablespoons ice water
- **For the filling:
- 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon oregano
- 1 cup milk
- ½ cup water
- Salt to taste
- 1 large onion thinly sliced
- 1 ½ cup cooked and diced sausage any type you like.
- **Making the dough:
- In a bowl, add flour, salt, sugar whisk well. Add butter and using a fork or your fingertips combine with flour until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Add water and gather to form a dough, do not knead. (If you have a food processor, then add all ingredients together and pulse.)
- Shape dough into a disk, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 45 minutes to an hour. (You can make this dough at night and use it next day if you wish.)
- **Making the filling:
- Mix flour with water and keep aside.
- In a pan, add the oil and onion, sauté until onion is caramelized.
- Add the black pepper, oregano, and sausage. Pour the flour water mixture and stir on medium heat.
- Pour the milk, season with salt, and keep stirring on medium heat until you get a thick creamy consistency.
- Let the filling come to room temperature.
- **Making the Galette:
- Preheat oven to 190C/375F.
- Since the dough is very delicate, cut enough parchment paper to cover your baking tray. Place parchment paper on your working surface and dust with flour.
- Place the dough on the parchment paper and roll out to 12-13 inches wide. If the dough is hard, then keep it out of the fridge 3 minutes before rolling.
- Place the parchment paper with the dough in your baking tray.
- Pile the filling in the center of the dough, then spread evenly but keep it 2.5 inches away from the edges.
- Fold doughs edges, up and to the center do this clockwise.
- Brush the edges with milk.
- Bake the Galette for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
- Serve hot.
You are right, the homemade crust makes all the difference. Your savoury galette looks amazing!
I fell in love with baking after visiting your blog Angie, so thanks to you for making me a good baker 🙂
I have fell for this one already! And homemade crust is always the best!
I lost hope on store bought pie crust since long time ago, homemade crust always enhances the flavor of the filling!
I made this tonight, and it was quite nice. Its the first time Ive made shortcrust pastry, and I think it was a touch too short. Rich, buttery and crumbly it was nice but I wonder if another spoon or two of water might have helped.
I'm lucky that there are several decent deli/butchers around me so I can experiment with sausages from Scottish Pork, Cumberland, Kabanos with chilli +/- cheese, chicken and leek, beef, bratwurst and many more. The fun will be adjusting the herbs and seasonings to complement the sausages.
Hi Ewan, glad you gave this recipe a go! If the dough is very crumbly you can add another tablespoon of chilled water. Flour changes according to brands and some might need more moisture than others. Good luck 🙂
Hi! I’m looking at making this soon, and was wondering why the flour and water in the filling are used? I can’t figure it out!
Hi Hannah, it is to make the sauce thick! Hope this helped.
