I think what I love most about cooking during the cooler weather, is the seasonal produce, natures comfort food are at their height, from root vegetables to an array of squash to mushrooms, there’s so much to enjoy.
It doesn’t take much to create a stunning spread that is both easy to make plus complex in flavors. One of my main ingredients that I always have on hand is Maille Dijon Originale, it can take plain and boring and make amazing happen.

What you’ll need to make the perfect gouda galette:
- A fresh pie pastry, homemade, or if in a pinch, you can buy premade from your grocer.
- Fresh mushrooms, such as crimini, button, beech, shitake, or any of your favorite varieties. If you’re a pro forager, this galette would be well suited to show off your bounty.
- Prosciutto. I love prosciutto, but if you are unable to find it or don’t wish to use it, you can use crispy bacon. For a vegetarian version, this of course can be omitted and simply increase the amount of mushrooms and enjoy.
- The one ingredient that really lifts the flavor of this galette is Maille Dijon Originale. I use about 1 1/2 – 2 tablespoons and toss it through the mushrooms, so good!
- Fresh or dried thyme and maybe a little fresh cracked pepper, but don’t go overboard. You want to taste all of the ingredients at their best and the only seasoning that I rely heavily on is the Maille Dijon Originale to bring it all together.
- Gouda! I prefer using grated smoked Gouda in this galette, but feel free to switch it up with regular Gouda, or even a nice Swiss. Nice.

How to make this Gouda Galette Recipe:
- 1 pie crust pastry
- 1 egg, beaten with a splash of water for wash
- 2 ounces smoked Gouda cheese, grated
- 8 ounces, sliced fresh gourmet mixed mushrooms, sauteed in 1 tablespoon of butter
- 4 - 6 slices of prosciutto
- 1 tablespoon Maille Dijon Originale
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Place rack in the lower third of the oven. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a dry skillet over medium heat, add butter and allow to melt, then toss in sliced mushrooms and saute until just soft, 5 - 8 minutes. Remove from heat and add the Maille Dijon Originale, stirring through to coat, set aside.
- Place a 12 inch rolled out pastry circle on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Leaving a 2-inch border around the edge of the dough, top the center of the pastry with grated Gouda Cheese. Scatter the mushrooms over the cheese, and sprinkle fresh thyme. Fold the edges over, pleating pastry as you go and pinching to secure. Brush the pastry lightly with the egg wash.
- Bake in the 375°F oven for 30 - 40 minutes or until light golden brown. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes and serve.
You can use a store-bought pie crust to save time and enjoy a quick to assemble appetizer, or you can make the pie pastry dough the day before.
