Last night The Walking Dead premiered its 7th season. And I have to say, I’m still in a fetal position. I vacillate between, the makers of this series went too far – And not far enough. If you haven’t watched this week’s episode, I will post no spoilers. Come back when you’ve watched it. Unclench, straighten from the fetal position, and wipe your tears. We’ll get through this together.

I am here.

For you.

Woo, man. SHIT! I’m sure most of us will never view Denny Duquette the same way again. And can we talk about Jeffrey Dean Morgan for a second? I’ve harbored an ill crush on him since he appeared in P.S. I love you.  And now he plays Negan – the worst villain on TV. Like the worst villain ever. You can blend a group of villains and still not get one Negan out of it. I have to say this, I’ll be surprised if he’s not a mega star following this role. The way he plays Negan is superb. He strikes the right amount of fear and hatred in your heart. I’m going to love hating him. And of course, at times I’ll feel oddly attracted to him because, duh – He’s sexy as hell.

But back to you, Walking Dead fan. You are grieving, as am I. And you need comfort. As do I. You need a meal that requires a bit of… A bit of babysitting. You need something to take watch over. Something to keep your hands busy and your attention diverted. Something to make this world right again. Or as right as it will get following last night’s episode.

Let’s make a Caramelized Onion and Gruyère Galette. Now, wait a minute – I know this sounds fancy. It is, however, very easy to make.

First you make a pie dough. Did I lose you? Come back! Don’t worry, this pie dough takes about 5 minutes to make in a food processor. You blend flour, butter, salt, sugar, and Gruyere cheese together. Yes, there’s cheese in the dough. We’re going for mega comfort here. You need it! The dough is bound with a little ice water. I mean it, this takes minutes. The dough is left to chill while you caramelize onions.

Caramelizing onions is THE MOST satisfying task you will complete in the kitchen. Just trust me on this one. You will stir occasionally, yet watching like a hawk for a straight hour as onions go from Lilly white, to a deep amber color. And the scent is phenomenal. Yes, it will take about an hour to get there. And once you’re there – Once you have achieved the coveted amber hue, we add bourbon to the onions. Yes, bourbon. Our onions need a drink too, boo.

Let that reduce.

Let them cool.

Eat some.

They’re so good.

Roll your pie dough. Doesn’t have to be perfect. Spoon your onions over that cheesy pie dough. Sprinkle cheese – Gruyère and Parmesan over that shit. And top with more onions. The dough is pleated over the onions, leaving the center exposed. Again, doesn’t have to be perfect.

Brush with egg wash.

Bake.

There’s that scent again.

Don’t think about what went down in TWD.

Don’t think about it.

You can’t deal with your feelings yet. It’s a process. Five stages and all that.

Remove the galette from the oven. The onions have caramelized further with the aid of your oven. The cheese has melted.

Allow it to cool a bit before you slice into this bad boy. And you WILL slice into that bad boy.

And then you’ll eat your feelings. And that’s OK.

You are still processing.

You have a friend in me. And a savory pie situation.
