So please, feel free to use my Split Pea Soup recipe, it is normally delicious, just make sure your chicken broth is good.
Anyway the soup is off the menu, but I still had ham and some kohlrabi that I needed to use so I got on line and found this recipe that I adapted to make a casserole for dinner tonight.
1 large or 2 small Kohlrabi, diced
4-5 med red potatoes, diced
2 c. of diced ham
Cheese sauce with ham, seasoned with nutmeg and pepper
Boil the kohlrabi and potatoes.
Place into prepared casserole.
Add Cheese Sauce and Ham.
Sprinkle with bread crumbs.
Bake until hot and bubbly.
Ham and Kohlrabi Bake
adapted from skydivingparrot
1 large Kohlrabi, peeled and diced
4-5 med. red potatoes, diced
2 c. large diced ham
2 2/3 c. 1% milk
6 T. flour
1 1/2 c. cheddar jack cheese blend, shredded
pepper to taste
1/4 t. nutmeg
Panko Bread Crumbs.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the kohlrabi and cook for 15 minutes, add the potatoes and continue to cook for another 10 min. Drain.
Heat 2 c. of the milk in a large sauce pan. In a small jar shake together the 2/3 c. milk and flour until smooth. Whisk into the hot milk mixture, stir and cook until it starts to thicken. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese and ham stirring until the cheese melts. Season with pepper to taste and nutmeg.
Spray a casserole with olive oil. Pour vegetables into the casserole, pour ham and cheese mixture over the vegetables and toss to combine. Sprinkle with a couple of handfuls of panko breadcrumbs.
Bake at 400* for 30-40 minutes, until hot, bubbly and browned on top. Print Recipe
