Prepare the fried endives and ham


Preheat the oven to 430°F (220°C).

Prepare 750 g endives (head of chicory), but leave raw, rather than blanching.

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.

Set aside.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Cook the tart


Bake low in the oven (to make sure the bottom of the tart cooks properly) until the top is browned - about 30 minutes or so.

Eat warm or cold with a good green salad and french dressing (vinaigrette), for example.
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.
Keeping
A few days, wrapped in aluminium foil.
