This is a great side dish for CHristmas, Thanksgiving or Easter Dinner. Even those who don't like Turnips love these. From the Best of Bridge, but tailored to how I like them.
- 1 large turnip (If your store only carries small, you will need several)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 -4 medium granny smith apples, you can use almost any kind of apple except macintosh or delicious as they are too soft
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 pinch ground cinnamon
- 1⁄3 cup flour
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- Peel, dice and cook turnip.
- Drain and mash with butter.
- Peel and slice apples.
- Toss with brown sugar and cinnamon.
- Arrange turnip and apple slices in greased casserole in alternate layers beginning and ending with turnips.
- Combine crust ingredients to a crumbly texture and pat on top of casserole.
- Bake at 350°F for one hour or until heated through.
- Prep time includes peeling and cooking turnip.
This dish is fabulous! I made it for Thanksgiving, since rutabagas were pretty much the only vegetable that my grocer had on special at that time. Even my daughter, who won't eat turnips, tried some, and she loved it! The cinnamon apples are a nice addition.
Excellent recipe! I had made it for christmas and everyone loved it!
