Welcome fall with this delightful Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Galette made easy with Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry!
Fall is here and so are the fall bounties. One of my most favorite fall vegetable is the Butternut Squash. Way more than pumpkin anything. Recently I had the combo of butternut squash and goat cheese in some dish at a restaurant and I loved it so much, that I tucked away the combo reference for future use in my brain.
The future was not too far and I used it to make an amazing dinner for us over the weekend.
Whenever I thought of galette, I always think of something sweet. Something that is made painstakingly. The image that comes to my mind is someone working with the pastry dough in the kitchen, for hours and covered in flour.
I love spending a lot of time in the kitchen, but that’s not my idea of a weeknight dinner and definitely not my idea of time spent on just one dish. If I spent that much time in the kitchen, I am getting out with a refrigerator full or at least 5-6 dishes to last us a few meals.
That’s where the Puff Pastry magic comes in. I used Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry as my dough for this savory galette, that took me way less time than it would have to make my own pie dough and the flaky delicious crust made it so much more delightful. Trust me, you guys, it takes so less time to make this. Once you have the thawed Puff Pastry Sheets ready for you, all you need is mix up the filling, roll out the Puff Pastry Sheet, add the filling, do a rough fold over the top, bake and ta-da, dinner is ready!!
