Recipe: Baked Belgian Endive with ham and cheese

This recipe works great for nights that require something a little fancy, but you don’t have a lot of time to cook. Almost impossible to mess up, my version uses shredded cheese. You can get fancy if you want and serve this with a cheese sauce instead.

Serves 4


2 Endive
4 slices ham
1/2 cup shredded Gruyère
dash nutmeg


1. Preheat oven to 4ooF. Cut endives in half. Cook in boiling water for about five minutes. Drain well.

2. Wrap endives in ham and place in a casserole dish. Cover endives with grated cheese and sprinkle with a bit of nutmeg. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly. Serve hot.
