A panade is one of those dishes that is way better than it has any right to be — or than it looks to be. It's an assembly of day-old bread, shredded cheese, and handy pantry ingredients (in this case, white beans, Swiss chard, and sausage) that gets doused with broth and baked until bubbly, like a savory bread pudding meets French onion soup. Not quite a soup and not quite a casserole, it's something more: the best of both worlds.

Galettes Are a Million Times Easier than Pie — Best of Summer

I am not quite sure when the last time I baked a pie was. It's not that I don't enjoy the occasional slice, but ever since galettes walked into my life roughly nine years ago, I've never looked back.

I distinctly remember the first day our love blossomed. The final project for one of my culinary courses in college was to develop a menu that would compete with my classmates' menu to be served at a graduation luncheon for my department. I dove deep into the task and scoured cookbooks and the internet to build a menu I thought would wow.
