A Canadian friend of mine gave me this recipe the other day. Turnips are huge up in Canada so they are a common side dish on dinner plates and I miss eating them on a regular basis. My husband says he doesn’t like turnip so I may just surprise him with this recipe one night because it sounds delicious. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
- 6 cups of cubed turnip
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 3 Tbsp flour
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar
- salt & pepper to taste
- pinch of nutmeg
Boil turnip until fork tender. Drain water and mash with potato masher. Wait for it to cool down a bit. Add butter, eggs, etc and then top with a mixture of 1/2 cup of fine breadcrumbs and 2 Tbsp of melted butter for the topping.
Bake at 375 for 25 minutes until topping turns light brown.
Thanks to my good friend, Nancy LeBlanc from Moncton, NB Canada for this recipe!
