Turnip Puff

The lowly turnip– not everybody’s favorite, but definitely one of Don’s favorites (turnip is high up on his list of good things to eat).  The funny thing is, even turnip haters will often enjoy a spoonful of this without gagging.  Are you thinking ew, not possible?  I did too, but go ahead, give it try, you might like it!

Turnip Puff

6 cups cubed turnips

2 tbsp butter

2 eggs, beaten

3 tbsp flour

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

pinch of nutmeg


1/2 cup fine bread or cracker crumbs

2 tbsp melted butter

In a pot of salted, boiling water, cook turnip cubes until tender.  Drain and mash.  Add butter and egg.  Beat well.  In a small bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, pepper and nutmeg.  Stir into turnip mixture.  Pour into a buttered 8″ baking dish/casserole .  Combine bread crumbs and melted butter.  Sprinkle on top.  Bake at 375 F for 25 minutes, until set and lightly browned.
