  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2 quart casserole dish.
  2. Place the carrot and turnip cubes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.
  3. Return the carrots and turnips to the pot, and mash well with the butter, salt, flour and 1/4 cup of sugar. Whisk together the eggs and milk in a bowl, then stir into the mashed carrot mixture until blended. Scrape into the prepared casserole dish. Stir together 2 tablespoons of sugar with the cinnamon in a small bowl, and sprinkle over the top of the carrot mash.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the carrot mash has slightly firmed and the top has begun to turn golden brown, about 45 minutes.

This can excite a non=turnip eater to possibly enjoy them! I used spelt flour instead of all purpose flour, and half the amount of honey instead of sugar, with just cinnamon sprinkled on top. ...

Tira shared this family recipe with me and I made it for Thanksgiving this year and it was a HIT!! So yummy, perfect addition to my table!! Thank you!!

This is a great use of turnip ! As I usually do, I added an apple,onion & garlic ( sateed in butter .) It added a depth to the dish that turned out great !

I really like this; my grandma would make something like this but it wasn't a sweet version. So I used this as a base. Instead of adding sugar I added dill and a pinch of cinnamon. I also did no...

Easy to make and so delicious. We will have this one again and again. I did cut back on the sugar by a few tablespoons and no cinnamon.

This was a little funky for us. Couldn't help but feel like I was eating very scrambled eggs with carrots. The texture was a little off-putting. I feel bad but not my favourite recipe. Sorry.

Tasty way to serve turnips to people who don't like them!
