Classic Turnip and Apple Casserole

Recipe by Lennie
READY IN: 2hrs




  • Preheat oven to 350F; butter a casserole dish (or spray with Pam) and set aside.
  • Peel and dice turnip (this can be a tough job, as turnips are very dense) and place in a large pot.
  • Cover with cold, lightly salted water and bring to a boil.
  • Boil until turnip is tender (this takes longer than potatoes, usually), then drain and return to the pot.
  • Mash turnip with the 1 tbsp butter and cream; stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar and the cinnamon; set aside.
  • Peel apples, core, and slice.
  • In prepared casserole dish, layer 1/3 of the turnip, then half the sliced apples, then 1/3 of the turnip, then the remaining apples, then the remaining turnip; smooth top.
  • At this point, you could cover the dish tightly and refrigerate for several hours; don't put topping on until you're ready to pop this into the oven.
  • When ready to bake, combine topping ingredients in a small bowl until they are crumbly; sprinkle over top of turnip.
  • Bake in preheated oven for one hour; serve.
