    Default Here's what I did with that leftover ricotta cheese

    I made a savory galette..

    I used my pie crust recipe, the recipe makes 8 single crusts so I had
    some in the freezer.

    Sauteed in bacon fat:
    1/2 medium onion
    1 cup chopped leftover ham
    1 clove garlic
    cooked till onion was softened and garlic was just beginning to color,
    removed from skillet and set aside.

    In same skillet sauteed one bunch of rainbow chard (mixed colors of
    chard) till tender and
    most of the moisture was used up. Count in the bunch of chard was 10
    large leaves. Salted and peppered the chard as it sauteed. Mixed the
    chard with the sauteed onions and ham mixture.

    In another bowl:
    mixed 2 cups of leftover mashed potatoes with
    1 cup of the leftover ricotta cheese
    about 1/3 cup shredded parmesan (the bits I had leftover)
    handful of real bacon bits
    salt and pepper

    Rolled out the pie crust.
    Spread the potato mixture over the crust to within 2 inches of the
    edge.
    Spread the chard ,ham and onion mixture over the potatoes
    Sprinkled about 2 ounces of crumbled feta cheese over the top

    Folded up the sides to make the galette.

    Baked at 400 for about 30 minutes.

    Very tasty if I do say so myself.

    I've gotten into galettes in the last few months and I've decided that
    savory galettes are one of the best ways ever to use up leftovers.
    Here's some recipes I put on my website.

    I know.......when I first posted that thread I didn't feel very well,
    so I put it off. Last evening I felt great and I had the stuff on
    hand.

    It really wasn't complicated at all didn't take 10 minutes to put
    together and get into the oven.

    You made me look it up savory galette recipes... this caught my eye.
    I like the parmesan crust idea, have some feta to use up and always
    have zucchini on hand.

    <lol>! I thought the same thing when I read her prep, but it did sound
    really good! One always reserves the right to change their mind Shel'.

    You ALWAYS have zucchini in hand... is that a fetish... conjurs up all
    sorts of lasciviousness. LOL

    So much for "I don't want to make a big production". but I know how
    that goes. Sometimes I get carried away when I start cooking
    something simple. But still, you had to plan that one.

    Not really much planning. I had everything on hand except the swiss
    chard and most of it was leftovers. That's the great thing about
    savory galettes, you can throw one together pretty quick and it's a
    great way to use up leftovers.

    That sounds really good. I'm not a fan of chard; I'd have to sub
    spinach. Don't like feta either; what's a sub for that? Other than
    that, the whole thing sounds fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

    Use goat cheese, or if you don't like that, any cheese that your heart
    desires.
    I really liked using the leftover mashed potatoes on the bottom, it
    kept the juices from the greens from making the bottom crust mushy.
