    Pets'R'us's Note:

    Belgian endive or chicory is not a vegetable that will be liked by everybody. It being slightly bitter puts it in the category for an acquired taste. The recipe is based on 2 pieces per serving, so if you buy the endive heads and they are large or thick and you will halve them buy less heads. You can also make a bechamel sauce to which you add cheese and nutmeg, pour that over the ham wrapped endive, add more cheese on the top and bake. Bread crumbs can be mixed in the cheese for the topping. In Holland we usually serve this with mashed potatoes.

      this is an excellent recipe. i loved how the ham and cheese offset the bitterness of the endive. even though after cooking the endive remains bitter it isn't overpowering...at least not for me but then again i do love bitter vegetables. i used black forest ham, cheddar cheese, and a little heavy cream. i didn't have any nutmeg but next time i will add it because it can only make this even better. thank you for the recipe.

      Wonderful! If you are a fan of Belgian Endive aka Chicory, then you are in for a real treat with this recipe. It may be an acquired taste for some, but fans of this bitter veggie will love this tasty dish. I found this very easy to prepare and loved the taste. Notes: I added a dot of butter and a grating of nutemgs in the hollows where the core had been, before wrapping each endive piece in the ham. I also used grated Gouda cheese rather than Cheddar, as that was what I had available to me. Delicious, unique dish!

      Very good and so easy. I boiled the endive about 8 minutes and they were well done. So quick to put together. Nutmeg really added a lot to the aroma and flavor of this dish. Glad I remembered and put on after I put the pan in the oven. Thank you.
