  3. Toast a slice of white bread. Spread the toasted bread with butter, sprinkle with half of the Gruyere cheese and top with a slice of cooked ham.
  4. Sprinkle with the remaining Gruyere cheese then place under the broiler until the cheese is melted.
  5. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a small frying pan. Add in the egg and fry until cooked to taste.

  7. Serve at once, with endive tossed with the salad dressing.
