Have you heard of the Belgian Endive? This unique snack recipe is for all those Eagles fans out there. It comes from a brewery in Easton Pennsylvania about 45 minutes north of Philadelphia called Weyerbacher Brewing Company, founded in 1995 by an avid home brewer and has grown from there.
3 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup Weyerbacher Merry Monks or similar golden Belgian Ale
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
6 heads Belgian white endive
4 ounces sliced Gruyére, cut into 12 strips
6 slices of prosciutto
This recipe obviously pairs well with Merry Monks by Weyerbacher Brewing Company. The Belgian-style Tripel is a dark, yellowish gold color with a small delicate head. It is full of flavor with hints of spice, banana, and pear. It is nicely balanced, with a bit of a dry finish. It is a little sweet for a tripel, but it is pretty tasty.
This unique snack, when paired with a similarly unique brew, is sure to keep things interesting.
