Chorizo and Tomato Galette with Susie Hagen

The sweet Susie Hagen has blessed us with one of her show-stopping recipes to bring along to your Easter feast. It uses our fresh chorizo which is packed full of flavour, meaning less work for you. Buttery pastry, punchy chorizo, fresh tomatoes, thyme and feta, need we say more! 

Serves 6 as a starter


  • 1 brown onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp raw sugar
  • 2 fresh chorizo sausages
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry - all butter pastry if possible
  • 250g cherry tomatoes - heirloom, whatever looks nice. Cut them in halves or slices
  • 100g feta cheese
  • 4 sprigs of thyme
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 180C and remove the pastry from the freezer to thaw.
  2. Heat a fry pan over medium-low heat and add in 2 tbsp olive oil. Once hot, add in the onion and cook slowly. After 10 mins, add in the sugar and a pinch of salt and continue to caramelise for another couple of minutes until nicely coloured. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. Slice the chorizo down the middle and remove the meat from the casing. Place the pan back on medium heat and fry the chorizo until slightly browned, breaking as you go. Remove from the pan after around 5 mins.
  4. Roll the pastry out to get a rough circle, around 40cm in diameter. It doesn't have to be perfect as you'll be folding the edges up and over the ingredients.
  5. Place the pastry on a lined baking tray and spread your first layer which is the caramelised onions. Spread them evenly over the pastry, leaving a 3 cm border.
  6. Follow with the tomatoes and cooked chorizo.
  7. Then crumble the feta cheese over the top and lastly the thyme leaves.
  8. Season with salt and pepper, keeping in mind that the feta and chorizo will provide a level of saltiness.
  9. Drizzle with a little olive oil and cook in preheated oven until golden, around 40 mins.
