Scalloped Turnips

22 Jun

I have to admit that I don’t generally enjoy turnips. I find them bitter and generally disappointing. Luckily, this recipe we received with them in the FFTY covered them in onions and cream, which helped with my opinion of them!

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced onions
  • 4 cups peeled, thinly sliced turnips
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 1-quart casserole. Melt 1 Tbsp butter and lightly sauté onions until just wilted.
  2. Layer a third of the sliced turnips in the casserole dish; top with a third of the onion; sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of flour, 1/3 teaspoon of salt, and one grind of pepper; pat with dollops from 1 tablespoon of butter. Repeat this layering twice.
  3. Mix milk and cream together and pour over the turnips. Cover and bake in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes, then remove cover and bake for another 30-45 minutes, or until tender and bubbly.
