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.

I'm always looking for a new way to prepare something inexpensive and ordinary. This recipe was delicious, my husband and I finished off the entire recipe for dinner between the two of us. I will definitely be using this again. Thank you for something wonderful.

Keen - what a great way to serve turnips. I love the vegetable and have had them mashed with carrots and butter, but these were outstanding! I think the milk and egg might tend to eliminate some of the bitterness of some turnips. This dish would make a great addition to a special roasted turkey or chicken dinner with the stuffing, gravy and mashed spuds! Mmmm, can taste it already. Thanks again. Gwen

Three cheers!!! Turnips do not have to be bitter and yucky anymore! This was wonderful and DH (my toughest culinary critic) LOVED it. I even declined dessert for a second helping. That does not happen often, I assure you! Great flavor, easy prep (I steamed the turnips first) what more could one ask? Thank you for sharing!

I tried this last weekend, and almost choked entirely through dinner! My hubby & daughter both know they HATE turnips....yet there was no leftovers! they thought it was potatoes. THANKS!

The first time I made this, it was amazing! I boiled the turnips with one chopped potato because I read online they help suck out some the bitterness from the turnip. Make sure you mash them VERY well. Second time I made these, not as good. One of my turnips was huge, maybe it affected the flavor. Try again if you don't like it the first time, too good to miss!

These were good but not great. I used some fairly strong-tasting turnips from my garden and that slightly bitter taste came through. I don't use sugar at all so maybe that's why. I might make them again but I'll probably try some other recipes first. Turnips tend to be delicious in soups.

Fantastic!! I did make one change though. Not fond of sweets so I omitted the brown sugar. My picky husband and daughter even liked them.
