In this typical Lyonnais gratin, cooked endives are browned in bacon fat and then broiled under a blanket of cheese. If Tomme de Savoie isn't available, use three cups of Gruyêre.  Delicious, Quick Side Dishes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Put the endives in a deep skillet that holds them comfortably in a single layer. Add the chicken stock, lemon juice and salt. Cover the endives with a round of parchment paper, make a small hole in the center of the paper and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, turning occasionally, until the endives are very tender when pierced, about 30 minutes. Remove the endives as they are done and pat thoroughly dry.

Step 2    

Preheat the broiler. In the same skillet, cook the bacon over moderately high heat until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add the endives, reduce the heat to moderate and cook, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes.

Step 3    

Transfer the endives and bacon to a gratin dish and sprinkle with the grated cheese. Broil for about 5 minutes, turning the dish to brown the cheese evenly. Serve immediately.

Make Ahead

The gratin can be prepared through Step 2 and refrigerated overnight. Reheat the endives before proceeding.
