IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

This dish of endives with ham gratin is as traditional French as it gets. However, I decided to play with the flavors and it was fantastic without compromising the flavor. The endives are first cooked, and this can be done a the day before, in a small amount of water and white wine. Do not toss the cooking water as I used half of it to make the white sauce. Flavor out of this world and cut down on the milk intake.

Easy to prepare not only you will enjoy the simplicity, but also the convenience that you prepare it the day before partially cooked. Cooking made it easy.
