A smoky and sharp ham-and-cheese sauce tops thinly sliced kohlrabi perfect in this simple gratin.

Make Ahead Tip: The gratin can be prepared ahead through Step 4; cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day
3 pounds  kohlrabi (about 14 small) trimmed, peeled and thinly sliced
1 1/3 cups  low-fat milk divided
3 tablespoons  all-purpose flour
2 ounces  smoked ham cut into thin slivers
1/4 cup  shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground black or white pepper
Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
1/3 cup  fresh breadcrumbs (see Tip)

Tip: To make fresh breadcrumbs: Trim crusts from firm sandwich bread. Tear bread into pieces and process in a food processor until coarse crumbs form. One slice of bread makes about 1/3 cup crumbs.

Note: Kohlrabi is a bulbous member of the cabbage family. Its bulb is either purple, white or green, with leafy spinach-like greens attached. It can be eaten raw or cooked.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 1 1/2-quart gratin dish or other shallow baking dish with cooking spray.

Cook kohlrabi in a large pot of boiling salted water until very tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Heat 1 cup milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until steaming. Combine flour and the remaining 1/3 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.

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

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