Recipe by JenSmith

This is a delicious dish that goes well with most winter main dishes. It is very easy to make and is a good alternative to scalloped potatoes.

Great versatile dish. If you slice the turnips and onions if a food processor, it makes up very quickly. I do salt, pepper and light dot with butter each layer. Tw o or three tablespoons of skim milk instead of the broth make it richer, smooth out the turnips. Great place to us e left overs . Last night was asiago cheese, with the leftovers for breakfast. After a party, add deli sliced meats and cheese, into a sort of strata. I love this dish.
