Savory Sweet Potato Galette with Feta

After a record number of consecutive recipes for sweets (including our new peppermint ice cream and best soft ginger molasses cookies), we’re now back to savory. This week we have a few recipe ideas for a special holiday meal – which are versatile enough for every day as well. After making our first successful galette for Thanksgiving dessert, we knew we wanted to try a savory galette as an entree. I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of savory pies for a main course (like pot pie!). We’d never tried it – though we do love us some pizza pies. This savory sweet potato galette is perfect for special occasions, like a brunch or dinner party (or even a baby shower recipe). Keep reading for the recipe!

How to make this savory sweet potato galette

For our filling of our sweet potato galette, we chose red onion, feta cheese, and fresh rosemary to compliment the sweet potatoes. Not only does the layered sweet potato and onion look festive, it tastes wonderful! The fragrance of the rosemary was perfect with the sweetness of the potatoes and the savory feta. The galette is pretty simple to put together. We happened to have some extra galette dough in the freezer, which was super convenient! The vegetables came together fairly easily, since they don’t need to be pre-cooked (though it does take a bit of time to cut and arrange them).

With some advanced planning, this savory sweet potato galette is nice option for a brunch or a dinner party, even a baby shower! A friend of mine recently hosted a baby shower that featured a few savory galettes on a brunch table. You can make it up and then bake it while you prepare other items or clean up the kitchen. We enjoyed this galette for a special meal with my parents when they were in town from Minnesota on an impromptu visit. We know know we’ll be experimenting with other savory (and sweet) fillings in the future!

Description

This sweet potato galette is a mouthwatering savory galette that makes for a special vegetarian dinner! The filling features sweet potato, onion, and feta.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 whole wheat galette dough
  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1/2 to 1 red onion
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon stone ground mustard
  • ¼ cup feta cheese crumbles

Instructions

  1. Before baking, make the crust dough.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  3. For the filling: Slice the sweet potatoes and onions into slices of the same thickness (about ¼ inch thick – make sure to cut them thin so that they bake fully). Mince the garlic clove, rosemary, and thyme. In a bowl, mix the potatoes and onions with 2 tablespoons olive oil and the kosher salt, rosemary, thyme, and fresh ground pepper. Toss gently to combine.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. On a floured surface, roll the dough into a rough circle about 12 inches across (it doesn’t have to be perfect). Place the dough on the parchment paper. Layer with potatoes and onions, alternating, and a circular pattern. (You can place any remaining veggies on a tray to roast alongside the galette.)
  5. In a small bowl, mix the stone ground mustard into 1 tablespoon olive oil. Brush the top of the crust and filling. Add a sprinkling of kosher salt.
  6. Bake 20 minutes. Add the feta cheese and bake another 20 minutes (40 minutes total), until browned. Cool slightly, then cut into pieces and serve.

  1. This looks so good! I think once this is cut into slices it could work as a plate of small bites at a party (it’s holiday time!) as well! Which is what I think I’m going to do with this! I love things that you can put together and then just put into the oven when you’re ready to go. Especially ones that look so pretty!

    Just a heads up, your link in the post for your first galette isn’t working. :)

  2. Hi Sonja and Alex,
    I’v been following your blog for a while now, and I really enjoy the recipes. I can’t believe it took me this long to realize that Sonja and I graduated from the School of Music and IU the same year! I saw Sonja’s profile picture come up on my friend Jon’s facebook page, and I realized it matched the picture on here. Small world!

    1. Natasha,

      That is so funny! What instrument did you play? I was a French horn major. Do you work as a musician now?

      How fun — thanks for writing and making the connection!

      Sonja :)

      1. I was an oboe major, and I still play. I teach and gig full time in Dallas, but I just started blogging for fun a few months ago. I actually play in the same quintet as I did when I was at IU! By the way, this galette looks amazing!

        1. Oh, how fun! We must have run into each other at IU :) I was also got a certificate in journalism with my music degree, and then pursued writing / business out of school instead of music. This blog has become a nice creative outlet for the music side of me :) Good luck with all your playing! Glad to make the connection.

  3. I made this for dinner tonight and it was fantastic. I used goat cheese instead of feta, but otherwise followed the recipe precisely. Thank you!

    1. You are so welcome! We’re glad you enjoyed it — it makes us happy to know that it was a success! Thanks for writing :)
