Fig & Blue Cheese Galette

Topped with sweet onions and peppery arugula, this savory starter is wonderful sliced in wedges and served with crisp wine.

Farm & Larder galette dough, chilled
6-8 figs, washed and halved or quartered
¾ cup blue cheese, crumbled
¼ cup sweet onion, very thinly sliced
1 cup loosely packed arugula
2 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

1. Preheat oven to 375° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unwrap chilled dough and place on a well floured surface. Let sit until edges become soft enough to roll.

2. Roll out dough into 3/4″ inch thick slab on a floured surface and transfer to baking sheet. Brush dough lightly with olive oil, reserving ½ tablespoon, and season surface with salt and pepper.

3. Leaving a 1 inch border around the circumference, dot the interior with fig halves and blue cheese crumbles, then scatter onion slices over. Roll border edges over to create a rustic crust, then brush with remaining olive oil.

4. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly. Remove from oven and sprinkle arugula leaves over. Slice into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.
