serverer 10 One Serving: 1/10 of a 10 serving recipe


  • 1 (2 lb) daikon reddik, skrelt
  • ts havsalt, pluss mer
  • 3 ss smør, delt, pluss mer for smøring av aluminiumsfolien
  • kopper kremfløte
  • 3/4 ts pepper, pluss mer etter behov
  • 1 ts tørket timian
  • 1 ts løkpulver
  • 1/2 ts Hvitløkspulver
  • 1 kopp (3 oz) strimlet skarp cheddarost
  • 1 kopp (3 oz) strimlet Gruyereost
  • 1/4 kopp Parmesan ost
+ Legg til oppskrift på handleliste


  • Fyll en stor gryte tre fjerdedeler full med vann, og kok deretter opp over høy varme.
  • Skjær daikon reddik på tvers i 2 eller 3 biter. Skjær daikonen i tynne ⅛-tommers skiver med en mandolin eller en veldig skarp kniv.
  • Tilsett 1 ss salt i kokende vann. Tilsett skiver daikon og kok til de er møre, men fortsatt holder formen, ca 10 minutter. Tøm daikonet i et stort dørslag i vasken, og skyll dem deretter forsiktig med kaldt vann. Når de er tappet, tørker du skivene tørre med rent kjøkken- eller tørkepapir.
  • Forvarm ovnen til 350 ° F (175 ° C). Plasser en rille på den øvre tredjedelen av ovnen. Bruk en tredjedel av smøret til å smøre en 8 x 10-tommers gryteform. Smør den ene siden av folien som er stor nok til å dekke formen med litt smør.
  • I en liten gryte over middels høy varme, varm opp fløten, salt, pepper, timian, løkpulver og hvitløkspulver til det småkoker rundt kantene. Reduser varmen til lav og la det småkoke til væsken har redusert med omtrent en tredjedel, 6 til 8 minutter. Slå av varmen, rør inn resten av smøret og sett til side.
  • I en liten bolle kombinerer du de strimlede ostene. I den tilberedte gryteretten legger du en tredjedel av daikonskivene, litt overlappende. Dryss en tredjedel av osten på toppen. Gjenta til du har tre lag med daikonskiver. Dryss resten av osten på toppen. Hell den reduserte fløteblandingen over lagene. Dekk gratengen med tilberedt aluminiumsfolie og stek til osten er lys gyllenbrun og væsken bobler rundt kantene, ca 45 minutter. Fjern, reserver folien, dryss gratengen med parmesanost, og stek uten lokk i 15 minutter til. Sett ovnen på broil, og stek deretter kort til gratengskorpen er dyp gyllenbrun og boblende, 1 til 2 minutter.
  • Fjern gratengen fra ovnen og dekk til med den reserverte folien. La stå og sette i 10 minutter. Tjene.

    Wow, this tastes as good as it looks! The texture and neutral flavor of the cooked daikon mimics potato perfectly. So satisfying!

    Had a little trouble finding Daikon Radishes but it was worth the effort. Delicious! I’ll definitely make it again.

    This might be favorite new side dish. I think I could make this for potluck and get folx to eat daikon too – you’d never know!!

    Most definitely one of my new “go to’s,” delicious! So much like scallop potatoes that you’d barely tel the difference.

    Loved it so much that it also makes my “Would serve to guests” top 10 list!!!

    The daikon preparation is genius. That alone is worth 5 stars. From there, anyone should be able to find their own way as if using a normal recipe.

    But then, a few things go terribly wrong: (1) Too much butter is called for… there’s just no purpose to so much in the pan … or the foil. The butter added to the cream, similarly, doesn’t really seem to add much dimensionality and it easily pools up. (2) Way, way, way too much salt is called for… too much in the boiling water, too much in the gratin cream mixture. I used only 1 tsp instead of the 1.5 directed and I couldn’t stand how salty the resulting preparation was. Next time, I’m following a traditional recipe or just using my own cooking skills to make a determination on salt. For that matter, salt would be best added in pinches, sprinkled at each layer step, along with pepper, with far less salt in the actual cream sauce. (3) Thyme powder is nice, fresh thyme is better. (4) One 2 lb daikon is a little light when laid into a traditional 8 x 12 pan. I’d have opted for a smaller pan or more daikon and gratin. (5) Similarly, the amounts of cheese used are slightly light, at least an extra half ounce each (cheddar and gruyere) would be better… and… back to the issue with the salt: adding the salty parmesan on top only increases the overall saltiness of this. I’d skip parmesan and consider buttered keto bread crumbs or use less parmesan and, again, reduce the overall salt in the actual dish.

    Those are large and significant quibbles, but I can’t deny the overall intent and manner of execution are exceptional. So, I’m compromising and giving it 3 stars. Would not be hard for it to score 5+ though.

    • Appreciate all the feedback, Chris. Salt is such a personal thing and we agree that it’s better to start out lighter and add more as you go.

      Then ya’ should have scored it higher and pulled your oar out of the water.

    This is an amazing recipe. The only change that I did was to add a smidgen of freshly grated nutmeg to the sauce. Also this is a great make-ahead dish I prepared it and assembled it ahead of time with the exception of the two cheese toppings. The next day I took it out of the fridge 2 hours before I was going to bake it off and just before baking I added the cheese and then the last 10 minutes I sprinkled on the parmesan. At that point I put my oven up to 500° and put it in the rack and it Browns perfectly without having to put it under the broiler I didn’t want to risk cracking my beautiful French stoneware casserole dish.

    Can one replace the Daikon radish with the China Rose radish (Raphanus Sativus)? I cannot seem to find Daikon radishes or the seeds to grow them here in South Africa. Thank you.

    • Hi Sally – we are not as familiar with China Rose radish here in the U.S. but it looks like the kind of radish that could work. Give it try!

    This is amazing comfort food that I am surely going to use this holiday season. I gave it four stars because I had to leave one star off even though the dish itself is perfect. The use of aluminum foil in direct contact with food is toxic and create several health issues. It’s bad enough that the WHO puts out advisories against using aluminum foil in contact with food. Chefs and food industry professionals tend not to understand the difference between restaurant quality products like the aluminum foil or cling wrap that they use are different quality from what is available to the average home cook on their grocery store shelves. If you’re home cooking buying your aluminum foil and plastic wrap from the grocery store then don’t cook with either product. The aluminum foil in grocery store foil is full of heavy metals that Leach into your food and the plastic wrap that you get at the grocery store is not safe for using in water bath cooking, etc.

    Well worth the effort. Didn’t taste the radish flavor at all. I soaked them and dried them as suggested. I subbed Swiss for gruyere. A definite winner!!

    This dish was amazing! Yes I froze some as I live alone. I’m used to freezing scalloped potatoes and these are sturdier. I really missed scalloped potatoes so my thanks for posting.

    I NEVER write reviews, but I have to because this recipe is OUTSTANDING. My husband has not appreciated any of my keto-version recipes up until now, but after he tasted this au gratin he wanted only that for dinner, lol.

    BRILLIANT, and worth the labor it took to make! Thank you, and I’ll be trying more of your recipes. Thanks to the Keto Twins for sharing this recipe on their channel, otherwise I may have never found it!

    SPECTACULAR!. Absolutely delicious, used sour cream, single cream, andcheddar cheese. Next time, I need to remember to remove as much water as possible from the daikon before putting it in the oven. pArt from that AMAZING!

    • You would never know it’s not real potatoes, right?! Did you replace some of the heavy cream with sour cream? Not a bad idea.

    DROP THE FREAKEN MIC!!! These are AMAZING!!! I really could not tell these were not potatos. Keto comfort food at its best. I used layers of thinly sliced onion instead of onion powder.

    I made this for my whole family and it was a hit! Everyone said they couldn’t tell it wasn’t potatoes. Thank you. 🙂

    Both my wife and I loved it! Tasted as good as any potato au gratin or scalloped potato recipe that we’ve had. We will make it again.
