Swiss Chard and Goat Cheese Galette

Galettes are a free form pie that are quite popular and understandably so since they come together quickly and have many easy fillings like this Swiss chard and mushroom version. Not sure why I am so late to the game on this galette making but with my success so far, these will be standard fare for dinner for the foreseeable future.

Heat butter in a large skillet, add mushrooms and cook on medium heat until the mushrooms have released their juices. Add sliced onions, shallots, chard stalks, thyme and rosemary cook until they start to brown. Salt and pepper to taste. Add in chard leaves and cook until wilted. Transfer to a cookie sheet to cool.
