I haven't made this recipe yet. I posted it for the Zaar World Tour 2006. I found the recipe in "The Essential Mediterranean Cookbook".

Yum! I had to use dried thyme, as I had no fresh on hand, but it was delicious. A bit on the greasy side, next time I think I'll cook the bacon a bit more crispy and drain the fat off better.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the bacon over medium heat until starting to brown. Add the onion and thyme and cook for 3-4 minutes, until softened.
  3. Transfer to a large bowl, add the potato, season with salt and pepper and toss well.
  4. Thransfer the mixture to a 7-inch round cake tin and press down well. Dot with the butter. Place a piece of doubledd baking paper over the toip and place a weight, such as a ramekin or a smaller cake tin, over the paper.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes.
  6. Remove the weight and the paper and cook for another 20-25 minutes (or until the potato is tender and lightly golden).
  7. Leave to rest for 20 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the tin and turn out the galette.
  8. Enjoy!
