    Baked Pancetta-Wrapped Endive

    The rich, almost-grassy taste of the Rotture di Oro balances the pancetta and light endive to create a memorable flavor.
    Ingredients:
    • 18 paper-thin slices pancetta
    • 9 heads Belgian endive
    • 4 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 3 Tablespoons Rotture di Oro Olive Oil
    • Sea salt & fresh ground pepper
    • 1 clove garlic minced
    • Optional, lemon wedges

    Preparation:
    Trim stem side of each endive head being careful not to separate the leaves and cut lengthwise into quarters. Position a rack in the upper part of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees. Bring a large pot full of salted water to a boil. Add 3 tablespoons of the lemon juice and the endive quarters and cook for one minute. \r\n\r\n

    Transfer endive quarters to paper towels to drain then place in a bowl and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of Rotture di Oro Olive Oil. Toss well season with salt & pepper. Working with one endive quarter at a time, wrap a piece of pancetta around it encircling it in a spiral pattern. Arrange the wrapped endives in a single layer in a baking dish allowing ample space between them. Bake until the endives are tender when pierced with a knife and the pancetta begins to crisp on the edges, about 15 minutes.

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 tablespoon of Rotture di Oro olive oil and the garlic. Season to taste with salt & pepper.

    To serve, place the endive quarters on a warmed platter and drizzle with the vinaigrette. Serve hot or warm, garnished with lemon wedges.
