DELICIOUS! A real winner here ~ made as directed. Loved the buttery, oniony flavor of the mix of turnips and potatoes. I made this as a side to go with Meatloaf Deluxe and will definitely make this again, it was so easy and the result was wonderful. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT6 ~ GREAT BRITAIN Region and the Queens of Quisine!

This recipe was included in Book#228608. November 15, 2008 -- This dish is definitely a keeper. I love turnips, although my son doesn't; he enjoyed this very much and I told him after dinner that this not only had potatoes, but also had turnips in it. He said "well I guess they're not so bad after all." DH and I loved the combo of the turnips and potatoes; a little extra zing that made this stand out from the usual homefries. A winner in our household for sure.
