Kickstart Your Morning with a Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Galette

Hey there, fellow foodies! Today, I’m diving into the world of breakfast galettes, and trust me, this recipe is a game-changer.

Q: Can I use pre-made pie crusts? A: Absolutely! If you’re short on time or it’s your first foray into the world of galettes, pre-made pie crusts can be a great way to get started. Just remember, the flakier the crust, the better the final product.

Q: What are some savory options I can add? A: Feel free to get creative! Roasted veggies, red peppers, and even a sprinkle of gruyere cheese can add great flavor. Think of your galette dough as a canvas for your breakfast masterpiece.

Q: Can this be made ahead of time? A: Yes! Bake your galette and then store it in the fridge. It’s perfect for the following day. Just reheat on a large baking sheet in the oven until it’s warm and crispy again.


Galette Ingredients:

Small onion or red onion
Puff pastry
Shredded Mexican or cheddar cheese

This breakfast galette is versatile. Serve it up on a large baking sheet at brunch parties, alongside a bloody mary or a cup of hot coffee. It’s a fantastic centerpiece for holiday mornings or a laid-back Sunday breakfast.


Wrap your cooled galette in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store it in the fridge. When you’re ready for round two, a few minutes in the oven on the middle rack will bring back that irresistible crispy bacon and flaky crust.

This bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast galette combines crispy bacon, caramelized onions, and a baked egg in a flaky, buttery crust for a gourmet start to your day. It's the perfect blend of savory flavors and textures, making mornings truly special.


  • 5 pieces of bacon, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 sheet of puff pastry
  • 1 cup shredded mexican or cheddar cheese
  • 5 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 390 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Place the onions and bacon bits into a saucepan with a little oil on the stove over medium heat.
  3. Let these cook, stirring every few minutes, until browned. This will take 6-8 minutes. Remove from the heat when done and let cool.
  4. Unravel the puff pastry and cut into 6 pieces. Place on the parchment paper about 2 inches apart from each other.
  5. Once the bacon mixture has slightly cooled, place a tablespoonful onto each puff pastry slice. Spread the bacon to create a well in the center.
  6. Place some shredded cheese inside each well. Fold the edges of each puff pastry to create a border so the egg doesn’t come out when cracked inside.
  7. Lastly, crack each egg into the center of each pastry on top of the cheese. Mix the salt, pepper and garlic powder and sprinkle over each egg.
  8. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until lightly browned and the egg is cooked to your liking. (Some like sunny side up or cooked hard)
  9. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with some chopped parsley for garnish.
  10. Enjoy!
