Cranberry Galette with Goat Cheese & Caramelised Onions

This festive cranberry galette with goat cheese and caramelised onions serves as a perfect party snack during the holiday season.

Galettes are so easy to make, it’s hard to fail at it. The best part is that it is a free form and does not require a perfectly cut out dough. You could even just use puff pastry and fill it with something sweet or savoury. But you could also just whip up a simple dough from scratch. I have tried both and my preference goes out to self made dough. Adding a bit of mixed nuts around the edges gives it a more finished look. Especially if you are concerned about uneven edges.

The holiday season is here and so are all the good foods that only seem to make it’s appearance once a year. Can you even call it a holiday season without cranberries? They somehow make their way into all different dishes. From sweet to savoury, in all edibles and even drinks. And we’re not complaining.

They have many health benefits like preventing bladder infections and boosting the immune system. They are rich in vitamins, mainly such as vitamin C. The best way to reap the benefits of cranberries are to eat them fresh or to juice them. However they are very popular in baking.

They have a bit of a sour taste to them and is usually combine with sugar or something sweet to balance out the taste. In this recipe, I find that the goat cheese not only adds flavour but it also compliments the berries. I love using pearl goat cheese from https://www.bettine.nl/en/goat-s-cheese-saladcrumbles/bettine-goat-s-cheese-pearls-plain-100g-12340104-2 It’s the perfect size to blend in with the cranberries. You could certainly use normal goat cheese and crumble it into smaller pieces.

Give this cranberry galette with goat cheese a go at your next brunch this holiday season.
