A lovely way to use chicory when it's in season. You can serve this gratin as a side dish or as a main with potatoes or a green salad. Add more ham to make it a heartier dish.
Wonderful recipe. If you don't want your sauce to become too runny, cook your endives the day before, so they can drain well. I'm Belgian too and this is one of our favorite Belgian dishes. :-) - 01 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe turned out exactly how my father always made it. I'm also Belgian, and it had been years since I've had this! It's AMAZING. Definitely one of my favorite meals ever. The sauce tastes amazing and complements perfectly with the flavor and texture of the endives. Will make over and over again! Thank you for posting this recipe. I will have my American friends try it - 04 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I first had this while living in Gent, Belgium. It's fantastic! I would have never had this otherwise. - 16 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
