How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400º. In a small bowl, combine apples, olive oil, syrup, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat, then transfer apple slices to a nonstick baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Stir, then continue to cook until golden brown and tender, 10 to 15 minutes more. Set aside.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine shallots and vinegar. Set aside.

Step 3

In a heavy frying pan over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp and brown, about 7 minutes; drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 3 tbsp. of the accumulated bacon fat and return pan to low heat. Remove shallots from vinegar, reserving shallots, and add vinegar to hot bacon fat, whisking until dressing is emulsified.

Step 4

Arrange frisée in a bowl and add apples, bacon pieces, and shallots. Pour warm dressing over greens and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

Chef's Notes

Crispy frisée lettuce is a nice counterpoint to the rich bacon; substitute 5 sliced raw endives if you prefer.
