Setting out appetizers and drinks makes a dinner party a hit, from the minute guests walk through the door. Along with this Stuffed Endive with Walnuts and Honey Recipe we set out a mini charcuterie, with brie, salami, crackers, and fresh orange slices.

I believe guests really appreciate a healthy alternative to classic game-day recipes (the typical potato skins, delivered pizza, chicken wings, indulgent dips, etc:). But if you’re wanting to go all out, this Hot Carmelized Onion Meatball Dip and Game Day Smoky Jarlsberg Dip Recipe is a big party hit.

How to make stuffed endive

Cream together goat cheese, chives, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Press the cheese mixture inside the center of the endive leaf.

The best part … drizzle wth honey, sprinkle walnuts, and top with orange zest!

So what would my menu look like, if hosting a Game Day party?

First of all, I find that if everyone contributes, it’s really helpful. Being the hostess, of course I’ll fill in the gaps and make sure we have enough food, but delegation really helps take the pressure off of a reluctant entertainer. And also, we should focus a little on health and portion control (not always easy to do on rare, occasional celebrations).

Game Day Menu Ideas:

Smoked Turkey Mango Chili
Cheddar Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins (She Wears Many Hats)
Spinach and Edamame Salad (Bev Cooks)
Healthy vegetable tray
Swiss Cheese Onion Dip
Classic Hummus

Endive Filled with Blue Cheese, Walnuts, and Honey (recipe below)

    Hi Sandy,

    Your appetizer looks luscious! And I love how it’s quite healthy – nuts, cheese, lettuce…perfect.

    And yes, I’ll be delegating. I always do. It really makes all the difference. And the nice thing is that my friends and family always want to bring something to help out.

    Oh my…portion control! You hit the nail on the head. And this is the time of year that all of us seem to be wanting to try and eat healthy and lose a few pounds. My husband and I …gasp…have actually been talking about joining a gym! So for our get-togethers, I’m putting out lots of fresh veggies – easy on the dip, along with a large Caesar salad to accompany our chili…but I’m going with chicken chili to lighten things up a bit.

    Have a great day.

    Love,
    Mary

    PS Love the look of the snack crackers. I’ll have to check them out at the grocery store tonight.

    Great menu! I’m drooling for that stuffed endive…wonderful.

    Hope y’all enjoy a day of family, friends and fun!

    Looks scrumptious; I just might make for a “wild game feast” this weekend. Although I can imagine using either would be fine, the pictures and actual recipe calls for pecans but the recipe title has walnuts in it. Could you please clarify which one is preferred? Thanks and I really enjoy your blog! You have made me a far less “reluctant entertainer”. :)

    • Sandy

      Hi, Becky. I added in that I used pecans. Nuts are so intermixable, so either work. I usually use what I have in the cupboard! Thank you!

    This looks like such a refreshing change to the usual heavy menu. I’ll do all the “cooking” on Sunday as it’s just the two of us snuggled up to watch the game.
    BTW – thanks for the tip on the printable recipes – done and working.

  8. Bev WeidnerReply

    Thanks for including my salad, Sandy! Every single looks so good I might freak out right now.

  9. AggieReply

    This looks amazing Sandy!! I totally agree, people really do appreciate a healthier alternative when it comes to food at get togethers. Thanks for including my mushrooms!

FAQs

What is the best way to serve endive? ›

Slice the endive in thin strips and add to any of your favorite salads. Great on the Grill. Brush each endive with olive oil then grill until browned and slightly wilted on grilled side. Top with balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper and toasted walnuts.

What food pairs well with endive? ›

Endive is all about the crunch, and as such it pairs well with other crunchy-juicy things, like in this endive-apples-celery salad. A much richer preparation involves bathing the endive in cream, ham, gruyere, then cooking until everything collapsed, bronzed, and bubbling.

Is endive good for your liver? ›

Endive is a very effective liver detoxifier. Bitter leafy greens like chicory and endive are beneficial to the liver. The bitterness of these foods aids bile flow in the liver, which aids in detoxification. In addition, it has phenolic compounds in it that help to preserve the liver.

Why is my endive so bitter? ›

Light is also the great enemy of endive, which is why you've probably encountered wrapped endive at some grocery stores. This wrapping helps it from turning green and tasting overly bitter.

Can you eat the core of an endive? ›

If you are eating them raw, you'll probably want to remove the bitter core. If you're cooking the endives, you can leave the core as it will sweeten with cooking. The endives can be sliced or whole leaves can be removed, depending on how you are using them. Enjoy endives raw or cooked.

Can you eat endive leaves raw? ›

Endives can be enjoyed both raw or cooked. When raw, endives are crisp and bitter, making them a great addition to salads. When cooked, endive's sharp flavor softens into a mellow, nutty sweetness.

Is endive better raw or cooked? ›

Endives can be enjoyed both raw or cooked. When raw, endives are crisp and bitter, making them a great addition to salads. When cooked, endive's sharp flavor softens into a mellow, nutty sweetness.

What does cooked endive taste like? ›

In its raw form, endive is crisp and bitter, often considered a bit of an acquired taste. If the vegetable had its own tagline, a good one would be “bitter crunch.” Cook the endive, however, and that bitterness all but melts away, revealing a soft, mellow, nutty, almost buttery flavor.

Should endive be cooked? ›

If you prefer cooked endive instead of raw, cooking it quickly is best. Cooking on the grill, in a stir-fry, sautéed or baking are ways endive can be enjoyed. Regardless of how you prepare endive, the important thing is that you are incorporating it into your diet.
