Crazy for Kholrabi

I am so glad I have the wonderful opportunity of introducing many of you for the first time to Kholrabi.

It is SO delicious.  I just know you will love it! Just try it!

Kholrabi Ham Bake ( from Simply Recipes)

Absolutely delicious!  We had it for dinner, but it could be a breakfast/brunch food!

So lets get this party started.

 Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large-ish pan.
Add 2-3 kholrabi (peeled and diced) to the pan.

Dice 8oz of thick sliced ham.  I bought a ham steak and cut it into bite sized pieces
Her comes the good stuff. CREAM.  Mmmm.
Separate 3 eggs.  We need the yolks for this recipe.  Add 1 cup of heavy cream.
Add 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
Add 2 tablespoons of fresh, chopped parsley. And season with salt and pepper.
Whisk together.
Your kholrabi has been cooking for about 10 minutes and is lookin' gooooood!
Now it's time to put it all together.  Add half the kholrabi to a 9x9 baking dish.
Add the ham.
Add the rest of the kholrabi and pour on the sauce.  Bake 350 for 30 minutes.
This food was accepted by all members of the family.  Even the pickiest, little guy.

Kholrabi Ham Bake
3 Tablespoon butter
2-3 kohlrabi, peeled and diced
8 ounces thick ham, diced
2 Tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
3 egg yolks
1 cup heavy cream
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
Salt and black pepper

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. In a bowl add the egg yolks, cream, flour, parsley, salt and pepper.  Whisk until well combined. Place half of the cooked kohlrabi on the bottom of an 9x9 casserole dish. Add on the diced ham. Top with the remaining kohlrabi. Pour the sauce ingredients over the kohlrabi and ham.  Bake for 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
