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.

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.
