TWD: Baking with Julia - Cheese and Tomato Galette

This week's recipe was delicious!  You can probably find the recipe out on the interwebs if you are interested, but it was pretty easy.  I whipped up the dough last night so it could get good and cold in the fridge, it was a mixture of flour, cornmeal, salt, sugar, sour cream, water and butter.  It was pretty rich but went really well with the toppings of mozzarella, monterey jack, fresh basil and roma tomatoes.  You can check out more variations at the Tuesdays with Dorie LYL.

I rolled out the dough with a few sprinklings of flour on parchment paper, which worked pretty well seeing how the dough is pretty sticky.  Then, I chopped up the cheese and chiffonaded some basil, putted those on top, added some sliced tomatoes, rolled up the edges and baked it for 45 minutes.  I did make sure to get as much juice off of the tomatoes as I could so that it would not get too soggy.  Mikey and I ate the whole thing for dinner!
