Kohlrabi Ham Bake

Inspiration:
Kohlrabi from our CSA and a modified version of this recipe from the blog Simply Recipes, originally from Russian, German, & Polish Food & Cooking.
Ingredients:
  • 1.5 Tbsp butter
  • 2 kohlrabi, peeled and diced
  • 8 ounces thick ham, diced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of mace (can substitute ground nutmeg)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large skillet, melt the butter on medium heat. Add the diced kohlrabi and gently cook for 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Beat the egg yolk, and whisk in the heavy cream, flour, mace, salt and pepper until well combined.
  3. Place half of the cooked kohlrabi on the bottom of an oven-proof casserole dish. Layer on the diced ham and parsley. Top with the remaining kohlrabi. Pour the sauce ingredients over the kohlrabi and ham.
  4. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Serve immediately.

Notes:
Yummy. I would make this recipe again if we get more kohlrabi from our CSA. It's pretty rich, so I suggest serving it with a green salad.

A perfect proposal for me because it seems really yummy, specially because it has enough ham and this is my favorite ingredient while I'm cooking.m10m

I found this kind of recipes a few weird, but it's because I got a bad experience when I went to Malasya. I know dish is fantastic, but definitely I'm not able to taste it again.
