This dish takes alot of time to prepare but it is delicious. The potatoes and Washington delicious apples go well together. I use a mandoline to slice the potatoes and apples which speeds things up a bit. I also make this in a quiche dish and when inverted onto a plate, it makes a pretty presentation.

Even though this recipe took a lot of effort it was worth it!And, lucky me, the russet potatoes were on special at the store too! Every bite is delicious. I made it for a company dinner yesterday with Crispy Crumbed Pork Chops and baked them in the oven along with the galette. I used a springform pan, greased it with Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!), and just used a wee bit less sage due to personal preferences. The combination of apples and potatoes is excellent. I will definitely make this one again. Into my 'favorites' binder it goes.
