What's Cookin'?

On the menu today: chicory wrapped in ham with cheese sauce, in the oven, in Belgium we call it 'hespenrollekes'! Yummie...

Ingredients (for 3 persons):
-chicory (6 to 8 pieces)
-slices of ham (1 slice per piece of chicory)
-500 ml cheese sauce (this is a bit much, but you just make as much as you like, I happen to looove cheese sauce)
-grated cheese (100 gr)

Step 1: Bake or cook the pieces of chicory until they're well-done (I prefer baking, because when cooked the pieces of chicory hold a lot of water and the cheese sauce becomes watery as well...). This step takes a while, I'd say approximately an hour. When you can easily pierce through the chicory with a fork, then it's done... Meanwhile also pre-heat the oven.






Step 2: Heat up the cheese sauce or make it yourself. When you make it yourself, use milk, loads of grated cheese, a bit of flour for binding, pepper, salt and other spices you like.

Step 3: Wrap the ham around the chicory





Step 4: Put the wrapped chicory in an oven dish, pour over the cheese sauce, cover with (loads of) grated cheese and put in the oven. Set the oven on grill.

Step 5: Watch the dish get a beautiful goldbrown crust ;)


Step 6: Get it out of the oven when it has that beautiful crust I was talking about. Scoop on your plate, take as much of the cheese sauce as you like and enjoy!







I love the dish on it's own, but it also goes well together with potatoes (baked or cooked)

Bon appétit!

XO, Aline
