A great accompaniment to a standing rib roast.

This is a tasty way to cook potatoes & also ensures that you remove a lot of the starch as well (if eating a lot of starch concerns you!). The galette didn't taste oily at all, I cooked it first & then put it in the oven on 180 degrees Celsius while I prepared the other food (which took about 15 mins). The cheese filling wasn't too rich, I served this with salmon & greens. Thanks Evelyn, this recipe was great.
