Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart casserole.
  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add turnips. Reduce heat to low, and simmer turnips until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.
  3. Transfer turnips to a large bowl and mash with applesauce, 6 tablespoons softened butter, brown sugar, eggs, salt, black pepper, and half the bread crumbs. Spoon turnip mixture into the prepared casserole dish, and sprinkle with remaining half of bread crumbs. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons melted butter.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 30 minutes.

This is the best turnip recipe that I've found. I had lots of compliments and there were only a few spoonfuls left. Will definitely make this again. Went really well with our Christmas turkey dinner.

I like this recipe, but I had to somewhat alter the original. I reduced the 6 tbls butter to 4 tbls, make sure you are using unsalted butter. I did not put butter on the top at the end, didn't seem necessary. Also, I increased the eggs to 3 and doubled the bread crumbs. I did reduce the salt, but I could have reduced it even more. I am wondering if the recipe meant to say 1 teaspoon salt, not tablespoon.

This is the best turnip recipe I have ever tried. I had to double it for only 8 guests. I will use this for a staple recipe. Even my Husband liked it and he hates turnip!!

This was really good. It didn't make me magically love turnips, though. Hubby likes turnips more than I do and he really enjoyed it.
