Moms' endive/dandelion dish

Moms' endive/dandelion dish created by Beve538

My mom made this wonderful meal a lot. I think she said it was a German (she was German-Irish) dish..If she was lucky enough, she picked dandelons to use instead of endive.....She served it as a main meal. My hubby really loves it. Looks like it's time for me to make it again after so many years...GBGBeve.....

    Wonderful dish indeed! I'm German and knew it but had totally forgotten how to make it. When I accidentally stumbled over it, I knew I had to make it :) I used both endive and dandelion but no bacon drippings as we don't eat pork. So I used turkey bacon fried in clarified butter. Also I reduced the sugar a little, maybe 3/4 of the listed amount. I'll definitely make this again, thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for Greens for Spring / Diabetes Forum.

    I was looking for a recipe that used dandelions that we got from our CSA farm. This recipe was a good choice. I thought the dish needed a bit more vinegar. My husband liked it just the way it was.
