  • Summary

    My grandmother passed this recipe down to my mom and she then passed it on to me. It's a casserole of pure comfort. First, bitter endive is simmered until sweet, then wrapped in savory ham and smothered with a creamy nutmeg béchamel. Gruyère tops it off before it's baked until bubbly and golden.

    Ingredients

    • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 3 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
    • 8 large yellow Belgian endive, trimmed
    • 8 ounces thinly sliced Black Forest ham
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 2/3 cup whole milk, warmed
    • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 8 ounces Gruyère cheese, shredded (1 2/3 cups)
