Very good recipe! I never had mashed turnips before, but I loved them. Servings are approximate. I can't really remember how many servings I got out of it.

OMG. I have never had turnips in my life and made this for our Thanksgiving this year. This dish was out of this world! My 11 year old said he would rather have this than mashed potatoes and I think we all agree. Thanks so very much for posting! OUTSTANDING!!!

Because we had so many turnips in our garden I was delighted to find this delicious recipe. My friends seemed to like it too because they keep asking for this recipe. Lyh

Who would ever think that turnips could taste so good?! These are wonderful. My husband said they almost taste like a dessert. My three year old even cleaned his plate (this is a small miracle!). You've even inspired me to grow turnips in my garden this year! Thanks for posting this awesome recipe.
