Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 20 min.
Endive gratin with cancoillotte

Pour 4 tablespoons olive oil into a large frying pan on medium heat and when hot add the endives.

Stage 2 - 10 min.

Stage 6 - 20 min.
Endive gratin with cancoillotte
Pour 250 g cancoillotte over and top with grated cheese (to give a nicely browned top when cooked).

Cook in the oven for about 20 minutes.
You can use bà¼ndnerfleisch (Swiss dried beef) brési (French smoked beef from the Franche-Comté region) instead of ham.

If you can't get cancoillotte, just use slices of another cheese, preferably with a soft texture, such as Saint-Nectaire or roblochon.
A few days in the fridge.
Home made.
