This hearty Finnish side dish is similar to mashed potatoes, but with the special, earthy flavor of yellow turnips (lanttu). Lanttulaatikko is a favorite Christmas dish on Finnish holiday tables.
- Boil turnip till tender (15-20 minutes). Remove turnip and allow to cool.
- When cooled, mash turnip with potato masher or ricer in a medium bowl. Mix in all other ingredients.
- Put mixture in casserole dish and bake in oven at 325 degrees F for one hour. Casserole should be brown and fully cooked through.
- Note: in the USA, "yellow turnips" are sold as "rutabagas".
