Crispy Endive

4 endive, roots removed and halved
1 T olive oil
1 T butter
1 garlic clove, halved
salt and pepper
cheese: parmesan, goat, blue, it’s up to you

Season endive all over with salt and pepper.  Set a skillet over medium-low heat, and drop in butter and olive oil.  When butter has melted, slide in garlic, cut side down.  Add endive, cut side down.

Cover pan and let cook 15-20 minutes, without disturbing it.  Times will vary depending on the size of the endive, but you’re looking for a deep brown, caramelized bottom.  Serve endive, cut side up, and top with cheese.
