I first had this delicious turnip puff at my Fathers place,(made by his girlfriend). Both my sister and I have gotten the recipe from her since,(which is the exact recipe as yours,except she only uses 1/4 tsp. baking powder). I have made it several times now,and I think my husband & I enjoy it more than regular mashed turnip now!! I am actually making it right now to go along with our roast beef for supper tonight, so I did a search to compare recipes out of curiosity. Upon seeing your recipe, I did increase my baking powder today to 1 tsp. I have also halved this recipe with great success! As you say this is great to go along with your Christmas or Thanksgiving holiday turkey, or any meal that you enjoy mashed turnip with!

I have been making this recipe for years and years and it is still a family favourite. The only difference I make is to add 4 carrots along with the turnip. Makes it slightly sweeter. Anne-Marie

I'm so glad this was posted. This is a traditional dish my brother and sister in law make at every Thanksgiving and Easter. I lost my recipe that they copied for me (From the Cookbook "the Best of Bridge.") This taste exactly like it. For varation I sometimes replace a couple cups of turnip with carrots and cook together.

Oh my gosh! This is incredibly delicious. Turnips have NEVER tasted so good! Very easy to throw together and easily replaces mashed potatoes in your menu. I do not add extra butter on the topping, just a light dusting of seasoned bread crumbs and sweet paprika. I do not recommend omitting the butter in the body of the dish. I did and found it just wasn't the same. My family loves, loves, loves this dish.

I find this dish lightens up the turnip flavor. To those who are unaware- use rutabega not the white turnips.

I made this recipe following the directions exactly. It was super easy to throw together. The taste was very turnippy and strong.

I made this as part of our Thanksgivings dinner and it is wonderful. I did as MonicaD suggested and added 1 c applesauce. My husband loves turnip and he loved this. This will be my new turnip recipe. Thanks for sharing.
