Old Fashioned Cooked Breakfast Galette

old fashioned cooked breakfast tart

Enjoy your brekky with this old fashioned cooked breakfast galette. Did you know that in Italy, the term crostata for galette appeared in cookbooks for the first time in the 1400s, during the Renaissance? In France, the word galette comes from the Old French word galet, which means pebble. 

Nowadays, the Breton galette is a crepe fashioned from buckwheat. The sides are folded over the filling, which gives it its infamous rustic look. It is very similar to the tart-like version we are talking about here: the old fashioned cooked breakfast galette!
