Cut the potatoes in half and sprinkle with olive oil, thyme, salt and freshly ground pepper. Bake for 30 minutes at 350oF. Turn the potatoes half way through baking.

Remove the potatoes from the oven, and cover each half with cheese. Continue cooking until the cheese melts.

Remove potatoes from the oven. Place a slice or two of ham on top of half of the potatoes, and cover each with remaining halves. Tie assembled potatoes with a piece of twine or fresh chive. Place back in the oven for a few minutes, just to heat through. Garnish with a sprig of thyme. Serve hot with cornichons.
