Creamy Scalloped “Potatoes” and Pork Casserole

Scalloped "Potatoes" and Pork Casserole
Scalloped “Potatoes” and Pork Casserole

My husband has to eat some Vitamin K every single day, on his Coumadin medication.  When I started to make dinner tonight, we realized he hadn’t yet had any today.  So the casserole I planned ended up getting some thrown in as an added layer and it turned out to be quite unobtrusive, perhaps even good, in the originally-planned scalloped pork casserole!  It added nutrition but it’s so mile, not so much flavor, actually.  This casserole is DELICIOUS!  And it would be even if you decided to leave the kale out!  The daikon does not taste like radish when cooked, so if you like scalloped potatoes, I think you’ll want to try this dish!  This recipe is suitable for all phases of Atkins, Keto diets but off-limits for Primal-Paleo with all the dairy in it.

VARIATION:  The top layer of “scalloped” diakon, without the meat or kale, would make an excellent side dish on it own. 🙂

1 T. bacon grease

3 oz. onion, chopped  (I used purple onion)

2 c. chopped kale, ribs removed

10 oz. cooked smoked pork loin or pork butt, cut in bite-size pieces

10 oz. daikon, peeled, sliced thin and then cut into 1″ pieces

½ c. shredded mozzarella cheese

2 oz. cream cheese, softened

¼ c. heavy cream

2 T. mayonnaise (I used my Homemade Shawarma Mayo)

1 c. shredded Cheddar Cheese

DIRECTIONS:  Grease a casserole dish and set by stove.  Preheat oven to 350º.  Heat bacon grease in non-stick skillet over high heat.  Add onion and saute until it begins to get tender.  Add chopped kale and just saute until it begins to wilt.  Spoon this mixture evenly on the bottom of the casserole dish.  Add daikon pieces to the skillet and saute until it begins to get tender.  While the daikon is cooking, soften cream cheese in a microwave in a medium bowl.  When daikon is just beginning to soften, remove from heat and add to the cream cheese in the bowl.  Add the mozzarella, cream and mayo to the bowl and stir well.  Last, add the pork to the skillet and saute (add more bacon grease if needed) a couple minutes. Layer the meat atop the kale mixture in the casserole pan.  Then evenly distribute the daikon mixture evenly on top.  Finally top with the shredded Cheddar.  Cover with foil and pop into a 350º oven foe 30 minutes.  Remove foil and bake another 10 minutes.  Serve at once.
