The Best Mother’s Day Gift – Make It For Mom

With Mother’s Day fast approaching, it’s time to brush up on your cooking skills and present mom with a well-planned, homemade gift from the heart you know she’ll appreciate: an impressive brunch.

Our Mediterranean Mini Galettes are so spectacular mom (and everyone else) will think you’ve spent hours mastering the perfect Mother’s Day dish. Only you know the secret; it’s the perfect go-to, last-minute plan that is sure to delight.

A galette is a freeform crusty cake slash pie, originally used in French cuisine but adapted in many different ways. They can be enjoyed both sweet and savoury and offer a delicate crunch that’s both elegant and rustic at the same time.

To prepare the Mediterranean Mini Galettes, pre-heat the oven to 400 F°(200°c). In a sauté pan, heat 2 tbsp of melted, unsalted butter and add 1 small red onion, diced. Continue to sauté until onions start to caramelize, approx. five minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Combine 1 clove of minced garlic with remaining melted butter. Meanwhile, cut 8 sheets of Krinos Fillo Pastry into square quarters and one layer at a time, brush butter on the sheet to coat. Continue layering the fillo pastry until you’ve layered four quarter sheets together. Repeat until all the Fillo Pastry is layered, which amounts to 8 layered pieces of Fillo.

Place 1/8th of the caramelized onions in the centre of each square, top with halved grape tomatoes, some roughly chopped Krinos pitted Kalamata olives and 2 tbsp of crumbled feta.

To form the galette, gather the edges, pleating as you go around, leaving the centre of the galette open. Brush the outside of the Fillo with butter and carefully place the galette onto the baking sheet with a large lifter or flat spatula. Repeat this process until you have 8 galettes.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden.

Serve with a side salad for a light lunch or as a great starter and watch mom swoon. After all, she deserves it.
