Ingredients
  Belgian endive heads 4
  Cream cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Egg yolk 1
  Chives 1 Ounce (1 Small Bunch)
  Grated cheese 4 Tablespoon
  Bacon slices 16
  Butter 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Extra virgin olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
Directions

Preheat the oven to 400°F and have the broiler ready for use.
Trim and rinse the endive then cut each head lengthwise in half and place cut side uppermost in a single layer in a lightly oiled gratin dish.
Season and sprinkle with the olive oil.
Push the cream cheese through a sieve into a large mixing bowl and blend in the egg yolk with a wooden spoon; add about 1 tbsp chives snipped with the kitchen scissors, the grated cheese, salt, and pepper.
Stir well then mold into flattened egg shapes by packing the mixture into a tablespoon and rounding the top off smoothly.
Set aside.
Broil the bacon until crisp; drain off all the fat.
Cook the endive by placing it under the very hot broiler for 8-10 minutes or remove from the gratin dish and dry fry on the griddle; turn the endive halfway through the cooking time.
Place in the preheated oven for 5 minutes in the gratin dish.
By now the endive will have wilted and softened; place a piece of crispy bacon on top of each endive half, then fill the spaces with the ricotta dumplings.
Return the gratin dish to the oven for 4-5 minutes while you melt the butter.
