recipe by rule of thumb:

  • lots of chard
    washed and cut into pieces
  • 4-6 garlic cloves minced, heat up in some olive oil
    then add the chard, and toss well, add salt and pepper and toss
    then add chicken stock and some cream and cook for 15-20 minutes
  • add ham slices into a roasting pan, so that you can fill them later
  • fill the ham slices with the cooked chard and fold the ham over it, all the rest of the chard goes in the middle
  • add sherry or white wine to the rest of the cooking stock, let cook once and add some crème fraîche
  • pour this over the ham rolls
  • and add some cheese on top


  • then bake in the oven for 20 – 30 minutes at180-200 degrees Celsius

a great dish for a cold winter day 🙂 works with any other vegetable
