kohlrabi and ham gratin

Servings: 6

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour 15 minutes


**3 lbs kohlrabi, trimmed, peeled and thinly sliced

**1 ⅓ cups milk

3 tbsp all-purpose flour

**½ cup ham, thinly sliced

**¼ cup cheddar cheese, shredded

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

Pinch of nutmeg

⅓ cup bread crumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Put a large pot of water on to boil. Coat a 1½-quart gratin dish or similar-size shallow baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Cook kohlrabi in the boiling water until tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain.

  3. Heat 1 cup milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until steaming. Whisk flour and the remaining ⅓ cup milk in a small bowl to make a smooth paste; stir into the hot milk and cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce bubbles and thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in ham and cheese. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.

  4. Distribute the cooked kohlrabi in the prepared dish. Pour the cheese sauce over the top, spreading evenly. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs.

  5. Bake the gratin until bubbling and golden on top, 30 to 40 minutes.
