bacon - cooked and crumbled

Very tasty. I used some white purple-topped turnips, and turkey bacon instead of regular. Lots of flavour.
Didn't take away enough of the sharp flavor from the turnips
Great side dish, not only for your Thanksgiving feast, but for your fall dinner parties. Turnip lovers and non-turnip lovers alike returned for seconds.
Thanksgiving wouldn't be the same without this wonderful dish. My husband LOVES to make this and I certainly let him as he feels he "owns" it!
A very tasty way to make turnip. I cooked it ahead and froze it, leaving out the bacon bits, which I fried up and froze separately. On the day, I warmed the turnip in the microwave and crisped up the bacon bits on the stove, then stirred them together. Everyone, even those who do not usually like turnip, liked it!
This is the recipe my Mom used! I'm so glad to find it again. Thanks so much.
I'm not a very big fan of turnip, but my husband is so I made this for him. I think I liked it as much as he did! Will definitely make again.
I think this is the state veggie in KY, everyone grows them & gives them away, & I'm always looking for a new way to cook them. Thanks a ton!!
