Endives gratin

I really appreciate our oven when making gratin . Making gratin will be including to our weekly plan meal. So many gratin recipes to try soon. Endives gratin is the second gratin recipes i made so far and here's my first attempt :)
                                                                      4-5 endives
Remove the bitter part of endives and cut in half lengthways. Wash then bring to boil in a salted water for 5  minutes. When done, drain and set aside. Now making the the sauce ...
1 cup milk
1 tbsp flour
1 egg
30g butter
40g grated cheese
1/3 tsp nutmeg
salt and pepper
In a low heat, melt the butter, add flour while stirring then pour in milk add egg, grated cheese, nutmeg season with salt and pepper. 
                                                                 3-4 slices of ham
Wrap the endives in a ham. Arrange them in a baking tray. Pour in the sauce
top with remaining grated cheese, i poured some drops of olive oil before baking it
                                                  ( a big MISTAKE! )
Set the oven to 190°c then bake for 40 minutes. Set the oven into top baking setting, then bake it for another 5 minutes or until the top gets nicely grating :) I can say, my endives gratin was a Top! even if it was a little oily next post, endives gratin without putting olive oil! hehehe practice makes perfect! :)
