Morsels of Life - Caramelized Onion Squash Galette - Butternut squash, perfectly complemented with sweetly savory caramelized onions and made even more awesome with a trio of cheeses.

For some reason, I'd been thinking about the Butternut Squash Caramelized Onion Pizza I made last year. Maybe since I'm starting to see winter squash on sale again, I wanted something a bit similar. However, I didn't quite have enough cheese for a pizza, and galettes just seem more fun! They've got the whole rustic elegance down. Plus, I get to use my cast iron skillet. :) The cast iron skillet certainly isn't a necessity. You can easily use just a baking tray, pie tin, or even a pizza stone. I just feel like I don't use the cast iron skillet enough, so I like using it when i can.

Anyway, back to this Butternut Squash Caramelized Onion Galette. It was just full of tastiness and deliciousness. I used thin strips of butternut squash. (After peeling, I just used a vegetable peeler to "peel" off strips of squash. You could also use a mandoline or just cut small chunks instead.)

Do you have a pot or pan you don't feel like you use enough? Which one?

Cook time:
Total time:
Yield: 8 servings


Mass Weight Volume Number Material Notes
1 galette crust or pie crust
6-8 ounces cheese, shredded I used 2 ounces each of Monterey Jack and cheddar and 4 ounces Parmesan.
1/2 teaspoon chili pepper flakes
1 cup caramelized onions
1/2 tablespoon rosemary, chopped
1.5 pounds butternut squash, sliced thinly or cut into small chunks
1/2 teaspoon cornmeal optional


  1. Gather all materials.
  2. Place butternut squash on a baking tray and spray with a bit of oil, then roast at 400F while preparing crust. You want it to cook a bit, but don't be too concerned if it doesn't cook completely.
  3. Roll out crust, and place it in a cast iron skillet (or baking tray) with a bit of corn meal sprinkled on it to prevent sticking.
  4. Mix all remaining materials with butternut squash, and spread filling in crust, leaving a border.
  5. Fold the border over the filling, folding/pinching where needed.
  6. Bake galette for about 45 minutes at 400F or until browned on top.
