Sweet Chili Butter Grilled Lobster Fries with Havarti Cheese.
Man, clearly I am all about the summer produce this week!
Can you blame me though? The grocery stores and farmers markets are basically bursting with fresh fruits and veggies, they have me SO excited!
Apparently I’m all about galettes this week as well. Honestly, I’ve made at least four in the last three days. NO JOKING around. Two of this pretty heirloom tomato galette, and two berry and one apple galettes. I know, I know, that’s A LOT of galettes, but it’s a busy week…
Speaking of which, did you guys happen to catch me on Facebook Live over on the Food Network’s Facebook Page on Monday? I made mango salsa and answered a whole bunch of questions, it was really fun! If you want to watch it, you can see it here. Don’t read the comments though, cause well, you get some nice ones and some not so nice ones…UGH. Sorry I didn’t look all that cute. I had literally been working in the kitchen all day long, so it wasn’t my finest outfit, hair or make-up moment. And yes, the cat totally jumped on the counter and people were freaking out about it. And yes, the rooster crowed like five times, but oddly most people seemed to be OK with that. I know it probably wasn’t my readers leaving mean comments, but to those out there that said Food Network could do better and that I am boring, well, no one asked you to watch, just turn it off. And honestly, don’t you have anything better to do with your life than take time to bash on someone who works really hard at what she does, basically 24/7?
For those of you who left incredibly kind comments, THANK YOU! You guys are the best!
More to come on the whole Food Network topic, but expect to see me on the Food Network’s Snapchat Discover channel come August. 🙂
OK. SO let’s just dive right into this recipe today because I have yet another big day of filming ahead!
First, how pretty is this heirloom tomato and zucchini galette? Just like yesterday’s Summer Fruit Plate, when I finished taking photos of this galette I was in the happiest mood. Pretty food just does that to me, and it’s a huge bonus that it also tastes incredibly delicious!!
I will not lie though, the first time I made this, it was not so good. One, I must have used some bad tomatoes, which really throws the entire thing off. Two, I didn’t cut the zucchini into small enough slices, so they where kind of flavorless. And three, there just was not nearly enough cheese.
Even though the first galette was not all that awesome, I was totally not ready to give up. I mean, I NEEDED to make this work because I needed to photograph all those pretty heirloom tomatoes.
SO, I adjusted the recipe a bit by adding plenty more cheese, caramelizing up some onions… for a touch more flavor, slicing that zucchini a bit smaller, and I got some of the best tasting tomatoes!
And guess what?!?! I had SUCCESS! Yeah!
I mean, how could I not? Buttery dough, blue cheese, cheddar cheese, caramelized onion, honey, roasted zucchini + tomatoes and fresh thyme?
I also topped my galette with a handful of fresh heirloom cherry tomatoes for a nice texture variation and little added prettiness. Perfection!
I highly recommend making this. Like maybe tonight? Think of it as a fancy (personal?!) pizza! <–DO IT!
Alright, see you guys on snapchat today with behind the scenes snaps! Wish me luck!

PS. haters be gone…and go find something better to do with your life. ?
Don’t worry about the haters. Glad to have found this recipe. Made it on a pellet stove – too hot here to put the oven on. A little dicey maintaining a constant temp. Still Lovely.
Amazing!! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for making it and sharing your review! xxT
I have made this many times for summery picnics and movies in the park. It is delicious! Making again this week!
Thanks for your review and trying this recipe out, I love to hear that it was a winner! Have the best Thursday! ?xTieghan
I’ve made this recipe probably about 6 times I Love It So Much! I’m a huge onion fan so the last few times I’ve added more but your original is great! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much for making this recipe and sharing your feedback, I love to hear that it was enjoyed!! xTieghan
So yummy! I didn’t have thyme when I made this, but I spread chopped dill over the bottom of the pastry and also added it to the eggwash and it was just delicious! Thanks for the wonderful lunch 🙂
Happy Friday!! Love hearing that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for giving it a try! xxT
What about the walnuts?
Those are added as a topping in step 6. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give the recipe a try! xTieghan
How can I replace eggs in this recipe?
You could brush the crust with buttermilk in place of the egg. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
Loved this. Loved that I usually have most ingredients around in the house or in the garden. Being stuck at home for the time being, I make a couple disks of dough for the fridge and use them for lunches or suppers throughout the week when I know we’ll be busy or want something light poolside.
Love that! Thank you Julie! xTieghan
Nice recipe but I found it rather salty. Next time I will only put a pinch of salt in the dough, leave the salt out of the onions and just a touch of salt on the tomatoes.
I hope it turns out better for you with less salt, Gemma! Thank you! xTieghan
Hey so I’m making this for dinner tonight and I made the dough ahead of time so it could really chill. I checked it today and it seems crumbly. I’ve never really made anything like this so I’m not sure how it should behave. Is there something I could to do make it stick together better or is it supposed to be crumbly?
Hey Cameron! If your dough is feeling a bit dry, just work a couple tablespoons or so of water into the dough until it feels moist enough to roll out. Sometimes chilling the dough can dry it out a bit. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan
I might try this out for Easter this year, looks and sounds delicious! My problem is I suck at making any type of dough, guaranty I will ruin it LOL. I know wont be as good as yours but do you think I could substitute in crescent dough sheet? Your foods are so creative & beautiful!
Hey Angie! I recommend store bought puff pastry! You can find it in the freezer isle and it works so well! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan
Hello ! I coked this galette yesterday and OMG it was SO tasty ! I didn’t add any cheese because my family don’t like cheese..But the tomato gave an incredible flavour so it was ok. The dough was very crumbly, buttery, delicious. I save this recipe and I’m happy to know your blog! I really enjoy your Instagram account to. I support you to continue like this !
Thank you so much Emilie! I am so glad you loved it!
Just made this great recipe! My wife and I are really enjoying your blog, thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much Matt! I am so glad you both loved these!
I’d also like to add that I’ll be traveling 3 hours away with these bad boys in tow, so transferring them in pie tins seems much easier.
Yes, that will be great!!
This. Is. Beautiful. I’m wanting to make this (x2!) for a family get together this weekend! I’m a complete novice and am intimidated by the crust of all things. What’s your opinion on making this with a pie crust?
HI Kendall! I think using a pie crust will work out just fine! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe. Thanks so much! x Tieghan
Ok, I got most of the ingredients fresh from the farmers market this morning and am excited to try this recipe! But I want to eat it Tuesday when I host some friends for dinner. Options to make ahead and freeze?
HI! You can bake and store in the fridge, and then reheat in a 325 degree oven for 15 minutes or until warm. I am sure that will be great! I have not tried freezing, but that may work too. I would thaw the tart before reheating. Please let me know if you have other questions. Hope you love this recipe! Thanks! ?
