The choice is yours. This particular galette is filled with all things cozy; potatoes, bacon, and leeks.

Unroll the store-bought pie crust and place on a piece of parchment paper. Sprinkle with half of the gruyere cheese, leaving a 1 1/2 inch border all around. Layer the potato slices over the cheese and season with salt and pepper.

Toss the bacon and leeks together, then scatter over the potatoes. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top. Fold the dough edges over filling, tucking and overlapping as needed. Whisk 1 tablespoon water into the egg and brush over the dough.
