The sweetness of the apples is a delicious balance to the thinly sliced potatoes in this Potato-Apple Galette. Adding sage gives it an earthy flavor that will make you want to come back for a second piece.

This recipe is so easy and yet looks so elegant! You can serve Potato-Apple Galette two different ways: 1. Layer the potatoes and apples directly into a greased oven to table baking dish and cut slices directly from this dish or 2. Line the baking dish with parchment and layer the potatoes and apples onto the parchment. When the galette is fully baked, let it cool about 10 minutes and then invert it onto a serving dish. Either way, you will have a sweet and crisp side dish for any meal!
