Step 1

Cut bacon in half lengthwise and then slice into 1/4" crosswise bits. Cook the bacon in a 10" non stick skillet over med. heat until it has rendered some of it's fat. Add the sweet potato and 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring until the sweet potato is tender and the bacon starts to crisp, 6-8 min. Stir in 2 T. of the chives and season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Cool briefly.

Slice the bottom 1/2" off the endives so some of the outer leaves break free. Cut another 1/2" off and break off some more leaves free. You shoud have about 20.

Optional: You can trim the leaves so they are all the same length.

Set the endive on a large platter. Spoon the sweet potato mixture near the base of the leaves. Top each with a dollop of saur cream and sprinkle with the remaining chives. Can make ahead up to 20 min. before serving.

Can make bacon mixture ahead a few hours, but do not ref. reheat briefly before filling.
