How To Prepare Potato Galette With Cheese

🧀 First, mix the cream cheese, grated gruyere and chives in a bowl. Then, form a disk and wrap in plastic wrap.

🥔 Secondly, slice your potatoes real thin, I used a mandolin.

💧 Remove excess moisture from the potatoes.

🫒 Preheat the cast iron with the 2 tbsp of olive oil.

🧈 Then, add the melted butter to the potatoes with the seasoned salt and pepper.

🥘 Start layering your potatoes on the cast iron, starting from the center. After 2 layers add the cheese in the center. Then, repeat the layering until the cheese is fully covered, about 7 total layers.

💥 Cover the top of the potatoes with parchment paper and add something heavy.

🌟 Cook on the stove at medium high for about 8-10 minutes.

🔥 Then, remove the parchment paper and bake at 400F for 55 minutes.

🌿 Lastly, place the parchment on top of the potatoes again, flip it onto a cutting board. Add flaky sea salt. Cut into triangles and transfer to a plate. Then, remove the parchment paper, add chives and black pepper.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can use comté instead of gruyere.
  2. I topped these with parmigiano and chives, but you can leave those out.

Chef Nadia’s Tip

Scrape the sides real well before flipping over and preheat the cast iron for 5 ish minutes. Place the cheese mixture in the freezer for 15 minutes prior to adding it to the potatoes.
