Mushroom, Onion, and Spinach Galettes

Recently, I’ve been trying out a couple of ideas for an upcoming brunch I’m hosting (like these Asparagus and Ham in a Blanket with Honey Mustard), and thought it’d be fun to do a savory, breakfast galette.  While these galettes aren’t a good fit for a brunch with a ton of people who would be…
