    Julesong's Note:

    I saw Rachael Ray preparing these on "30 Minute Meals" recently, then found endive on sale at Trader Joe's… I have the rest of the ingredients at home, so I couldn't resist! :)

    1. 1
      Trim the heads of endive, and quarter them lengthwise.
    2. 2
      Cut the sliced prosciutto in half on an angle across the center.
    3. 3
      Over medium-high temperature, heat a grill pan or large skillet.
    4. 4
      Season the prepared endive with salt and freshly ground pepper (I like tricolor peppercorns).
    5. 5
      Wrap each endive with a piece of sliced prosciutto, then brush each with the extra-virgin olive oil.
    6. 6
      Saute each on the grill pan or large skillet for 7 to 8 minutes, turning every couple of minutes, until the prosciutto is nicely crispy and the endive pieces are tender.
    7. 7
      While the vegetables and ham are cooking, begin the reduction sauce: place the chopped figs and vinegar into a saucepan and bring to a boil.
    8. 8
      Reduce heat to medium and simmer sauce for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the figs are soft and the vinegar is nicely thick and syrupy.
    9. 9
      When endives are done, place attractively on a serving dish and drizzle the fig and balsamic reduction over them.
    10. 10
      Serve and enjoy!

      Julesong!! This dish is DELICIOUS!! the balsamic/fig reduction is excellent. For a slight variation - I added a small piece of blue cheese under the prosciutto and wrapped tightly. Heavenly!!!

      I enjoyed this dish very much. It was easy yet looked like it could be served at a fine restaurant. I didn't have and couldn't find any figs, so I substituted dates and the sauce was still super. I will make this over and over again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
