Prosciutto Endive Appetizers for the Keto Diet
With our low carb lifestyle, I was at a quandary as to what I would do to replace the cheese and cracker appetizers I love to serve over the holidays. Then, when shopping at Shop-Rite for my groceries last week, I came across some endive. ]
Endive is fairly tasteless, and like it’s flavor, it doesn’t lend a ton of nutrition, however it does provide you with a good amount of vitamin K and they are packed with fiber. This basically negates the carb count and makes this great for Keto!
A ton of flavor and mouth feels!
I have a huge affection for browned butter, crispy fried sage, and crispy cooked prosciutto. When I saw the Joan of Arc Goat Cheese in the cheese case, I knew I was going to somehow combine these flavors together.
Goat cheese is very distinct in its flavor and for some, it’s an acquired taste. For years I wouldn’t eat it. I didn’t think I liked it. Then, one day I decided to give it a try again. When I did, I realized I actually LOVED goat cheese! Now I can’t get enough of it.
The holidays are a very important time of year for many people. It is a time we use to be with our loved ones, share food, laughs, and reminisce of old times! I love making it even more special with gorgeous and tasty bites of food!
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook prosciutto until crispy. Remove from skillet and set aside.
In the same skillet, add butter and bring to a bubble. Add sage leaves and stir and cook until just browned. Do this quickly and over a lower heat so you don't burn your butter. Remove leaves and set aside on a paper towel.
Cut endive roots and remove leaves. Wash produce and pat dry. Assemble bites by placing crumbled goat cheese in a boat. Drizzle with Yacon Syrup and top with crispy prosciutto and sage leaves.
