Blue Cheese and Carmelized Onion Galette

This was by far my favorite dish we made at our Uncle-Niece cooking day! I first had this dish at a family holiday party a few years ago. Ever since, I have been hounding my Uncle Tom to make it again. It is a great dish to make for a party because it's simple, yet makes a delicious and beautiful statement. Not only does this dish look fancy, it tastes amazing!


Blue Cheese and Onion Galette

1 pie crust (we used Pilsbury refrigerated crust to make
it easy on ourselves, but you can always make a homemade crust!)
1 T. olive oil
1 T. butter
2 medium sweet Vidalia onions halved and thinly sliced
2 t. sugar
2 T. balsamic vinegar
3/4 C. blue cheese crumbled (here we used Gorganzola, and slightly less than 3/4 C.)
2 tsp. fresh rosemary finely chopped
1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper

Heat oil and butter together in a large skillet. Add onions and sugar, cook over medium heat until caramelized, stirring often, for about 25 minutes. Stir in vinegar and stir until it evaporates, about 2 minutes.

Heat oven to 350°F. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll into a 12 inch circle. Place on a ungreased cookie sheet. Roll the edges in about 1 inch and flute to create a border. Sprinkle cheese over dough. Spread onions over cheese. Sprinkle with rosemary and pepper.

Bake until crust is golden brown, about 25 - 30 minutes. Slice into wedges.
