Prepare the fried endives and ham


Preheat the oven to 430°F (220°C).

Pour 3 tablespoons olive oil into a frying pan on medium heat. When hot, fry the endive halves for a few minutes on each side until nicely browned.

Remarks

If you would prefer a slightly milder flavour, you can blanch the endives.

On the other hand, if you would prefer a stronger flavour, fry the endives and add 2 tablespoonsful of vinegar at the end.
