So I tried to cook some endives, I write tried cause I had a huge problem witht eh cheese sauce. The recipe sounds easy but for some reason I just could not get it to work, so I just through the cheese on top and cooked it.
Here are some photos and the recipe if any one can tell me what I did wrong that would be great.
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
8 whole Belgian Endives cored
1/4 cup chopped green peppers
1/4 cup red peppers
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup grated mild hard cheese
2 teaspoons grated parmesan cheese
8 slices of black forest ham
salt and pepper
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F - In a frying pan, lightly saute the endives, remove from pan and set aside. Repeat with peppers and set aside.
2. Add flour to the oil and stir over heat until lightly browned. Add seasoning and cheeses and blend with a whisk until cheese melts. Stir in peppers.
3. Grease an ovenproof casserole. wrap each endive in a slice of ham. Place in dish, cover with the cheese sauce and cook for about 20 minutes or until dish is bubbly and brown. Garnish with chapped parsley and serve hot.
My problem was #2 my cheese got brown and hard!!! I tried it 3 times!!! I also had my endives wrapped in ham before i started the cheese which i think is a good idea then you can pour the cheese on right away.
