Endive with Sweet Potatoes, Bacon, Chives, and Sour Cream

 Endive with Sweet Potato, Bacon, Sour Cream, Chives

One of the sponsors at a food conference I attended last month in Washington, DC, was the Discover Endive! folks.  At the reception that opened this weekend event, they served tasty bites of Endive with Sweet Potatoes, Bacon, Chives, and Sour Cream.  These were a delicious balance of crunchy, chewy, sweet, salty, meaty, and creamy.  With the hand-held leaf serving as an edible platter, they were a perfectly-sized nibble and easy-to-serve appetizer.

I was interested in possibly trying to make these at home, as I thought they would be a great snack with cocktails or, as we're coming into that season, a rooftop drinks gathering.  It turns out that Souffle Bombay made this one night for her husband when she was back at home.  I also found another recipe on Fine Cooking.  I decided to do a mash-up of both recipes plus added my own little twist to come up with this version.  You can find it here.
