Easy 5-Ingredient Heirloom Tomato & White Cheddar Farmhouse Pie

There is noth­ing quite as tasty as a per­fect­ly ripe gar­den toma­to. I am tick­led to say my gar­den is cur­rent­ly pop­ping out some of the tasti­est, acidic, slight­ly sweet toma­toes I have ever tast­ed. They are per­fect with a pinch of salt and a dash of black pep­per, but with the boun­ty that I am har­vest­ing, I decid­ed to expand my toma­to recipes a bit. This 5-ingre­di­ent recipe is almost as easy as slice, sea­son and eat!


I mixed up my favorite pie crust recipe and cut the dough into six equal por­tions. For this recipe, I only made one galette (aka Farm­house Pie). But if you want to serve more than 2 peo­ple, you can either make 6 galettes (each galette serves 2) or cut the dough in half and make 2 larg­er galettes.

If you don’t have the time (no more than 5 min­utes) or the desire to make your own crust, you can eas­i­ly use store bought, refrig­er­at­ed dough.

To make a galette for 2, you will need 1 pie crust dough rolled out into an 8″ round. Once the dough is rolled out, spread 2 tea­spoons of your favorite dijon-style mus­tard across the inte­ri­or 6″ of the crust. *I find it eas­i­est to roll my dough out on a piece of parch­ment, assem­ble the galette (while still on the parch­ment) and slide the paper onto a bak­ing sheet and right into a hot oven.*

Slice 4 plum-sized toma­toes, remove most of the seeds & inner liq­uid and place them atop the mus­tard.

Sprin­kle a high-qual­i­ty sharp white ched­dar (like Ker­ry­gold Dublin­er or Skel­lig). Add a few dash­es of kosher salt and ground black pep­per then begin turn­ing the edges of the crust onto the toma­toes and cheese.


Once all of the edges are fold­ed, brush them with a few tea­spoons of heavy cream. Driz­zle a tea­spoon (or 3) of cream over the cheese & toma­toes while you are at it.

Sprin­kle a lit­tle more s & p over the edges of the crust and pop it into a 425° oven for 17–19 min­utes.


In just a few min­utes, the most deli­cious, savory pas­try will emerge from your oven.


The toma­toes caramelize slight­ly while that sweet Irish ched­dar melts into all of the nooks & cran­nies. Just the right amount of salt & pep­per brings out the acid­i­ty of the toma­toes. The slight tang of the dijon and the added cream are the final touch of per­fec­tion.


This galette is sup­posed to serve 2 but has often served “one” in my kitchen. So, so good. Next time, I will add a few strips of crisp bacon to the top just before bak­ing time is com­plete. I think this may fall into the “best thing I ever ate” cat­e­go­ry.  Did I men­tion — it’s SO good?!
