Yes, this looks complicated. No, it really isn’t. The hardest part is cutting the fruit evenly. Don’t worry about pie pans or anything else. Gorgeous and delicious, try your hand at this.
Gluten Free Peach Galette
1 1/2 pounds peaches, sliced 1/2 inch thick (4 3/4 cups)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
1 tablespoon cornstarch or tapioca flour
1 pie crust, thawed or homemade
Gluten free all-purpose flour, for
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Sanding sugar (optional), for sprinkling
Whipped cream, for serving
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, stir together the peaches, sugar, lemon juice, salt and cornstarch.
If you are using a ready-made pie crust, plop it out of the pie tin onto a piece of parchment paper. Cover with plastic wrap or another piece of parchment and roll to a 13″ circle.
If you do this in the middle of the parchment then you can transfer the galette right to the baking sheet to bake. If you are using a homemade pie crust, place on parchment and roll out to a 13″ circle.
Place the fruit mixture in the middle of the pie crust leaving 2″ around the edge.
Carefully fold up the edge to cover part of the fruit as in the picture.
Beat the egg in a small bowl. Use a pastry brush and apply to the overlapping edges of the pie crust so it will brown and also hold onto the sugar. Sprinkle with the sanding sugar ( or regular sugar).
Bake until golden brown and bubbly about 1 hour and 10 minutes or so. If the crust is getting too brown on you, cover with a piece of aluminum foil to protect it.
Let cool 10 minutes on the baking sheet. Then transfer to a wire rack, still on the parchment paper, and let it cool completely.
Serve with whipped cream.

If you want to use apricots for this, follow the recipe but stir in 1/2 cup sugar with the fruit instead of 1/3 cup of sugar.
Full of burger flavors, this chopped salad would make a wonderful buffet meal. Place everything in bowls, let your family and/or guests chose the toppings they want. Me….I go for everything! Bring it on…..
Cheeseburger Chopped Salad
1 1/4 lb lean ground beef
1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
6 cups (or more) chopped romaine lettuce or lettuce of choice (use what you like)
2 ripe avocados, chopped and lightly tossed with lemon juice to prevent browning
1 large tomato, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1 (8-oz) block Cheddar cheese, shredded
Favorite salad dressings, set out at least 2 or 3
If you have pre-cooked ground beef in the freezer take that out and let it thaw or pop in the microwave.
If you haven’t thought that far ahead, brown the ground beef in a large skillet leaving it in large clumps (so it looks like cut up burger patties) and cook until done. If you don’t care, just cook it till done anyway. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and stir.
You can combine everything in a large bowl and toss together, or you can place everything in individual bowls and let everyone choose for themselves.
Depends on how many dishes you want to do later. Or you could be sneaky and place everything in paper bowls so all you have to do is throw it away later.
Serve with orange segments or tart grapefruit segments. Either one would be great.
