DIRECTIONS

  • Peel the Kohlrabi.
  • Slice horizontally in 1/4 inch slices.
  • Boil these slices in salted water until fork tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Drain well and lightly dry off with a cloth or paper towel to remove excess water. A little water remaining is ok.
  • Butter a small casserole dish on the bottom and sides with one tablespoon butter.
  • Place a layer of sliced Kohlrabi as the first layer, cutting into pieces if necessary to fit.
  • Sprinkle a layer of your choice of cheese.
  • Repeat layers until casserole dish is full.
  • Pour heavy cream over the top of it, allowing it to seep down into the cracks.
  • Sprinkle breadcrumbs over top.
  • Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and sprinkle just enough over the breadcrumbs to lightly moisten.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • If using Gruyere or swiss cheese, sprinkle a very small amount of nutmeg over crumbs.
  • Place in 400 degree oven for 20 minutes, until cheese is melted and breadcrumbs are golden brown.
  • Let stand a bit before serving to allow cheeses on the interior to firm up a bit.
