What a wonderful way to eat turnips! Who would have thuought that cornflakes would enhance the flavor, they seemed to take the bitterness out and leave the yumminess in!
Even Mom liked them and she never eats turnips!
I found this dish to be lacking character. To start with, it is too sweet. If you remove the brown sugar, you basically have a turnip omlette with some breadcrumbs thrown in. It is very rich and very unhealthy, and if I'm going to eat something like that, I want it to taste better than this! It needs some spices (nutmeg and ginger maybe?), and one review suggested mashing the turnips. Maybe that would help too. If I were to make this again, I might try those modifications, but I probably won't make it again.
This was so tasty it could have been dessert. I don't think I'll ever be able to prepare turnips any other way. Even my resident "non-veggie" eater couldn't get enough!
I love this recipe, but have to give it 4 out of 5 only because of the alterations I made to the recipe (I only give 5 out of 5 if I love the recipe after making it exactly as written). I use one medium turnip and halve the remainder of the ingredients. Also, I use 5% cream instead of heavy whipping cream and only a tablespoon of brown sugar Splenda instead of regular brown sugar. Not too sweet, and not too heavy. When I made this recipe with the modifications, my parents - who are both Finn and grew up on their respective mothers' turnip "casseroles" - said that these were the best turnips they'd ever had!
This recipe overall was pretty good. It was a little too soggy for my taste, but it had a nice not-too-sweet flavor. The cornflakes helped.
Personally, I enjoyed this dish. My family was iffy. I will make this again---without changes, the consistancy was fine. They'll learn to love turnips, I already do!
My hubby and I both enjoyed this very much!I did use 1/2 c. carnation evaporated with 1/2 cup 1% milk.Thankyou.
It would have helped if the directions had stated to mash the turnips, perhaps it could be edited to include that in the directions. Otherwise, very good and will make it again. We raise our own and always have plenty.
