    So many beloved foods are stuffed, wrapped or rolled up, aren’t they? Think ravioli, sandwiches, tacos, calzones, dumplings, wontons, corndogs, empanadas, samosas, spring rolls, burritos…the list is endless!

    Today our Sunday Supper cooks are celebrating things that are stuffed, rolled and wrapped, and do we ever we have a delectable array of recipes to entice you.

    To the party I have brought my new favorite appetizer – Endive Stuffed with Blue Cheese, Walnuts and Honey. The slightly bitter endive spears provide a secure enclosure for the tangy cheese and crunchy nuts and the whole thing is lightly sweetened with a drizzle of honey.

    Recipe: Endive Stuffed with Blue Cheese, Walnuts and Honey

    Summary: Endive leaves are the perfect receptacle into which blue cheese, walnuts and honey are stuffed, making a tangy-sweet-crunchy appetizer.

    Ingredients

    • 3-5 heads fresh endive
    • Crumbled blue cheese
    • Toasted walnuts, broken in half
    • Honey

    Instructions

    1. Slice root end off endive and separate leaves into individual spears. Rinse and dry well.
    2. Arrange endive spears/leaves on a serving platter, and into each spear put some blue cheese crumbles (stuff the leaves to suit yourself), a few walnut pieces, and finish with a slight drizzle of honey.
    3. Serve with a flourish (maybe put a towel over your arm like a maitre‘d because you have earned the right to be fancy like that).
    4. Allow at least 5-6 spears per person. (You could aim modestly and allow 2 spears per person, but you would run out and feel badly about it. This happened to me at a party so I know firsthand.)
