Simple Pastry Crust serves as the base of Swiss Chard-Ricotta Galettes with Fried Eggs.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine flour and sea salt in a large bowl. Mix in butter and shortening with a pastry blender or 2 forks until it resembles coarse meal.

Step 2

Whisk together egg, vinegar, and 1/4 cup cold water, pour into flour mixture, and stir just until it comes together and starts to form a ball. Add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary. Press together with lightly floured hands, and form into 2 flat rounds. Cover with plastic wrap, and chill 1 hour or overnight.
