Finishing the kohlrabi casserole – 50 minutes

Peel and thinly slice the potatoes. If the potato slices are on the thicker side, it is best to pre-cook them.

Layer the potato slices like roof tiles over the leeks. Mix 3 eggs with 100 ml of cream and 150 g of crème fraîche in a medium-sized bowl.

Season with salt and pepper and spread over the casserole.
