Frisee with Bacon and Gorgonzola Cheese

Although this is a salad, it is actually an intensely rich and flavorful dish made with warm bacon fat, Gorgonzola cheese, and sherry dressing. 


  • 6 slices bacon, cut into thin strips
  • 4 tablespoons Gorgonzola cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 cups cleaned frisee (3-4 heads), torn into pieces


  1. Place the bacon strips into a medium-sized skillet over medium heat and cook for 6 minutes until crisp.
  2. In the meantime, spread the Gorgonzola cheese on the bottom of a serving bowl. Remove the hot bacon fat from the skillet and spoon over the cheese. Let the mixture stand for 2 minutes and then add the vinegar and a few pinches of salt and pepper, and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the frisee and bacon to the bowl and gently toss to coat. Serve immediately.
