Endives sure are tasty for an accident. Tesco’s are selling them these days (I think the label says ‘chicory’), and I recommend you try them like this:

1 endive (chicory) per person
1 boiled egg per person
1 slice of ham per person (optional)
Some walnuts
Some cheese
Some butter
A little lemon juice
Salt and pepper

Simmer the endives for about 15 minutes (add a knob of butter and a teaspoon or two of lemon juice to the water)
(This is a good time to boil your eggs, too)
If you want, wrap each endive in a slice of ham (they work equally well without)
Put some walnuts at the bottom of a casserole dish
Put the endives on top (wrapped in ham or not)
Slice the peeled eggs, and put the slices on top
Cover the whole thing with grated cheese
Grill or bake until the cheese is melted

Serve with boiled potatoes and sweet-potato mash

Mmm mmm.
