DIRECTIONS

  • In a large heavy pan, cook bacon over medium heat until brown and crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel and set aside.
  • Drain off all except 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat. Add the butter and heat pan over medium heat until foaming subsides.
  • Add the turnips and cook, stirring occasionally, until butter is browned and turnips are dark brown and slightly caramelized, 10-12 minutes. (if after 4 minutes turnips have not started to brown, increase heat).
  • Add potatoes, broth and salt. Cook covered over low heat (broth should simmer gently; do not boil), until potatoes fall apart easily when poked with a fork and all liquid is absorbed. (25-30 minutes).
  • Remove pan from heat, remove lid and allow steam to escape; about 2 minutes.
  • Gently mash veggies together with a potato masher. Fold in half-and-half, reserved bacon bits and thyme. Taste for seasoning; add more salt if needed and pepper to taste.
