  • Cook the potatoes. When they're ready add a bit of butter and milk and pepper, salt and nutmeg. Mash. Take a form to put in the oven (deep enough) and make a layer of mash on the bottom.
  • Take 50 grams of butter and melt in a pan. Add 50 grams of flower and stir with a guard until it isn't lumpy anymore. Then add milk until it has the right consistency (a bit more liquid then you want your sauce to be).
  • Then add 75 grams of raped cheese. When the cheese had melted, get off your stove. Pour half of the sauce over your mash layer. Cook the chicory's.
  • When they're cooked, wrap them each in a slice of ham. Then place them in your oven-form. Cover with the rest of the cheese-sauce. Sprinkle the rest of the raped cheese on top. Place in a hot oven for about 10 to 15 minutes.
