Ingredients

3 slices bacon
crosswise thinly sliced
1 ⅔ cups sweet potatoes, or yams
peeled and dice into 1/4-inch
1 x kosher salt
to taste
*
1 x black pepper
to taste
*
4 tablespoons chives
thinly sliced
2 each belgian endive
medium size
*
cup sour cream, light
optional

Directions

Cook bacon in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until it has rendered some fat, 3 to 5 minutes.

Add diced sweet potato and ¼ teaspoon each kosher salt and pepper or to taste.

Cook and stir often, until sweet potato is tender and bacon starts crispy, 6 to 9 minutes.

Stir in 2 tablespoons of chives and season with more salt and pepper to taste. Let cool for bout 2 minutes.

Slice the bottom ½ inch off endives, so some of outer leaves break free.

Cut another ½ inch off and break some more leaves free.

Keep doing until all larger leaves are free. (You should have about 20.) If you desire, trim leaves so they're all the same length.

Save remaining endive for salad.

Arrange endive leaves on a large platter.

Spoon sweet potato mixture near the bottom of the leaves.

Top each with a dollop of sour cream and then sprinkle with the remaining chives.

Let sit for up to 20 minutes before serving or serve right away.

If you're aiming for a Paleo diet, omit the sour cream and you are in compliance!
