Endive Boats AKA the Easiest Appetizer Ever.

Mar 6, 2013

How is it Wednesday already? This week is flying by!   If you need an easy appetizer then look no further.  These took 10 minutes max to whip together.  I was trying to think of an appetizer that was Paleo diet friendly this weekend for a friend who was in town.  I immediately thought endive boats.  I had never made them before but always wanted too.  I did a google search and none of the recipes moved me so I created my own and I must say they turned out fab.  I made one batch using Boursin cheese and one batch with pimento cheese and both were scrumptious.  I could not stop eating them while I assembled them!  Best part you only need 4 ingredients total!  You can feel a little less guilty about eating lots of cheese since the vehicle you are using is a veggie, not a cracker.  Plus I think this appetizer looks as pretty as it tastes!


– 3-4 Bunches of Endive

– 1 Boursin Herb and Garlic Cheese

– 1 Container Palmetto Pride Pimento Cheese

– 1 pint cherry tomatoes

Wash and dry the endive and tear off the leaves.  Slice the cherry tomatoes into round thin slices.  Scoop a spoonful of boursin or pimento cheese on each endive leaf.  Place a cherry tomato on top and sprinkle with a little pepper.  Place on a fancy platter and serve!

  1. Thanks for sharing something titled the Easiest Appetizer Ever, it certainly caught my attention as I am constantly looking for quick and easy things when it comes to food. Not my strong suit. Keep em coming! They look delicious! Beth


  2. Love these and love ANYTHING with pimento cheese!

    Those look divine! A veggie as a vehicle for cheese definitely means I would eat all of them. I'm making the blueberry streusel muffins you posted awhile back today!

  4. Melly says:

    Those looks AMAZING! FYI- if your friend is following Paleo, cheese is not allowed!

  5. one of my favorite apps to eat at other people's houses yet I never think to make them for myself. Love that you used pimento cheese with them. Good southern twist!

    Pimento cheese is the best!' Yummy recipe!

  7. I've totally done something like this before. Look at me, I'm all domestic.

    YUM!! I love endive boats – one of my go-to apps! You should try my fave – endive with gorgonzola or bleu cheese, pine nuts, and a drizzle of good olive oil & squeeze of lemon. Perfection for spring time!

    This is my kind of appetizer! Easy and full of flavor.

  10. They look really yummy! I have never had pimento cheese. I need to get some.

    I have friends in Charleston right now. I wish I were with them so I could meet you for a drink!
