Blog Your Omelet with Nuria

Cheese and Tomato Galette


One of the bonuses of blogging is that you get to meet so many new people from all over the world. I have had a fascination with Catalonia in Spain and Portugal for many reasons. Once I have saved all my "buttons" I am sure this will be my next destination of choice. A blogger that we all know from Spain is Nuria of Spanish Recipes. If you have come to know her through her blog you have appreciated her wit and her winning personality.

Nuria is holding an event this month called Blog Your Omelet. Now haters beware but I am not a big fan of eggs, but I will try them in limited ways such as egg salad, quiche and devilled eggs. I still wanted to partipate in Nuria's event so decided to create a Cheese & Tomato Galette. This recipe comes from Gale Gands new book, Gale Gand’s Brunch! You can read more about her book in my previous post here. I am unable to share the recipe with you but it was a wonderful combination of eggs, extra-sharp Cheddar, Canadian Swiss and Parmesan cheeses. The filling was very creamy and somewhat like a custard and less like a quiche that I expected. This was a winner. You just have to get a copy of this book!!!

    Blog Your Omelet sounds like a witty comeback - Hey Buddy, Go Blog Your Omelet! - you could say that after somebody cuts you off in traffic... (!) ;-)

  24. Not a huge fan of eggs? Come visit us for a long, leisurely weekend. I bet I can get you to change your mind :)

    Lovely galette, Val. Those tomatoes are beautiful and I bet this tastes divine! I'll have to check out Gale's book! After all, brunch is one of my favorite meals of the day!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That looks really lovely Val with all the tomato slices!

  27. We just had eggs for dinner tonight, but not an omelet. Our daughter likes it when I make what we call a "mess" for dinner. Fried potatoes, green pepper, onion, then on top of that you put eggs that are scrambled. YUM!!

  28. looks great... now i'm intrigued about the recipe... :)

  29. I've been thinking a lot about savory galettes lately, and this is a wonderful inspiration to do more than think!

  32. this post reminds me that i should start cooking more meals with eggs as a base. we often have fried eggs and boiled eggs, and sometimes cook a greek style omeltte (more like spanish frittata), but i've never been very creative with this humble ingredient

  33. Val, I'll have your share of eggs...love'em! You've compensated here with lots of tomatoes...can't be hatin' those!
