Excellent. A very simple, tasty side dish. I didn't drain mine well enough, so I didn't have the consistency needed to fry the leftovers as was suggested(but they reheated well anyway). Oh well, I'm sure I'll get it right in the future, as I plan to make this often. Thanks for another winner!

Made this last night and the kids couldn't tell there was turnip in their mashed potatoes!!!! I served it with pork chops and it was a big hit!!

I usually serve up haggis with my mashed potatoes and turnip separate, but I tried this instead and of course it went just as well. It goes well with fried eggs and baked beans too!

This was quite good, and very similar to a Shaker recipe I've made for years called "Alabaster." (If you use white pepper instead of black, the Clapshot is a creamy white color.) The only thing to watch out for is that turnips can hold a LOT of moisture and the dish can get a little too watery. But it was excellent! Thanks, Millie!

"Super duper wonderful", says DH!lol Served the clapshot alongside meatloaf and it was a delectable combination. Used two rutabagas to four russet potatoes. Will cut the rutabagas pieces a bit smaller than the potatoes next time, to ensure more even cooking. Sprinkled with fresh snipped parsley---bravo! Will make this a regular at our house. Thank you so much for posting, Mille!

We tried this tonight to have alongside pork tenderloin. I think I may have chosen a turnip that was too old, as the dish had a bitter flavor to it. Might try again in the future with younger, smaller turnips or other root vegetables.

BRAVO.... With this recipe, I disguised a vegetable!! I had my 3 children that I can't normally push veggies into & my husband that I had to tell had turnips. I am sorry to say that I have no leftovers to try with the tomatoes, guess that I will do that next time. This recipe was not hard at all to make and alterered everyday potatos into something more healthy. I used this as a side dish with chicken breast seeing that we are all trying to eat a bit healthier and I will surely make this again. Thanks :)

Great way to add a not too favorite vegetable into the menu. And the kids liked it.
