Glad I found this...I am trying to cut back on potatoes one of my favs, so I tried the mashed turnips and they were just as good as mashed potatoes. I did add a bit of bacon grease in the water, and some margarine while they cooked. They did seem to drain "water" after I mashed them but I just stirred them up again. Very good recipe and will be making it lots more.
Cut way back on the milk - or, better yet, stir in heavy cream a little at a time - to avoid ending up with nasty watery turnips. I also like turnips and cauliflower mashed together. Thanks!
in our family we add even ammounts of carrots and turnip. The carrots add a bit of sweetness. This is a must for all of our holiday dinners. It has been in our family forever. Thanks for sharing
I have to admit I was a little leary about mashed turnips ... but they are actually very good. I think next time I will cut back on the liquid a little. They turned out a little too wet ~ so maybe a half of a cup instead. Otherwise they are a great addition to our recipe box. Perfect for a Atkin's friendly meal!! Thanks so much!!
Our family's first turnip, a big Koran turnip, I mashed with one red potato and it came out great. Mashed potatoes with slight textural changes. I will make again.
A good, basic recipe. I left out the milk and it was still a bit watery. Easy, one pot dish.
the milk ended up making this too runny, but it had a great flavor.
I just started using turnips as mashed instead of potatoes. So delish, however, omit the milk and add a little garlic. I eat them all the time.
