Amish Turnips

Autumn is here... and that means great root produce!! Turnips are in season and I love to cook with them during this time of year. I've mashed them, boiled them and glazed them... but this recipe was new to me - Amish turnip pie!? Never heard of that before!? I got this from an Amish recipe food application on my iphone called, "The All in One Cookbook." This makes for a wonderful side dish, has only a few ingredients, easy to throw together and... the most important aspect... it's tastes good! If you have somebody in your family who hates turnips, give this recipe a try. If they still don't like turnips afterward take them to the doctor... because there is something seriously wrong with them! ;-)



2 1/2 cups cooked turnips
2/3 cups bread crumbs
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup milk
1 egg
salt & pepper


1. Peel & chop turnips into chunks. Boil them until tender.

2. Drain, mash and then add 1/2 cup of bread crumbs - save the rest for the topping.

3. Add egg, milk, sugar and salt & pepper to taste. Mix together and pour into a greased baking dish - a pie dish works well!

4. Dot with butter and top it off with the rest of the bread crumbs.

5. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes.
