    Hag chef's Note:

    This is one of my favourite vegetable recipes. It is a real indulgence, and one I usually use for special occasions. It originates from The Netherlands, and is a family recipe. It is so good! A tasty way to serve Belgian Endive, or "witlof".

      This brought back wonderful memories of travels in Belgium. I made half a batch, using about 1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground nutmeg in place of the cayenne. I didn't have quite enough milk, so topped up with a bit of cream. Sinful? Yes! Feeling guilty about it? No! It's winter in Australia, so I baked this in my wood stove. Served with Zucchini With Salsa. Thanks so very much for posting.

      Thank you so much for introducing my family to a new vegetable. This was outstanding! I added a little more milk to the sauce to make it thinner but otherwise followed the directions as written. It was perfectly done in the 30 minutes. We will be making this again. Thanks for sharing.

      This is a favorite at my house! I half cream and half milk though, and add a little water from boiling the endive to the sauce.
