I love blueberries. I love them fresh out of the refrigerator, and I really love them when they’re in my breakfast and desserts! Today I’m taking a #BlueberryBreak and sharing a little Bourbon Blueberry Galette that is quick and easy to put together!
With the holidays just about wrapped up, I’m ready for a quick refresh before taking on the new year. We’ve had one heck of a year, with a newborn in the house, on top of things really picking up at work.
For me, I take solace in food. With fresh blueberries being available 365 days a year, I decided to grab some and make something that we can all enjoy while we sit back, take a blueberry break, and reset.
Think of a blueberry galette as a super rustic pie. Something that doesn’t take much effort in preparing, but is insanely delicious and will fool people into thinking you spent hours preparing. I added a little twist and added some bourbon to accentuate the flavor of the blueberries.
And that’s what I love most about blueberries. They’re simple and delicious. Even just to eat on their own. I love adding them into recipes, one of my favorites is making a fresh blueberry syrup.
When my bourbon blueberry galette is done out of the oven, it is so hard to wait for it to cool before eating. Like a pie, it is great to eat on its own, or you can always go ala mode. I personally prefer it on its own.
The flavors from the blueberries with a hint of bourbon are really enough for you to sit back and forget about your worries, at least while you devour the whole thing. Then it’s back to the grind!
