(Again I will say, you are amazing to be able to pull off 2 major holidays within weeks of each other! I bow down to you!!)
Are you ready? Or do you still need some ideas for side dishes?
Well I have an idea for you! It’s something different than the same old boiled turnip.
This has to be one of my most favourite side dishes on the table at Thanksgiving and Christmas!
|Ack. I didn’t get a good picture of this dish!
Trying to get a turkey dinner on the table for over 10 people and taking pictures just doesn’t jive!
3 cups hot, mashed turnip (about 2-3 medium sized turnips)
3 tbsp flour
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup bread crumbs
- Cook, then mash your turnip.
- Then beat together the mashed turnip, 3 tbsp butter and 2 eggs.
- In a separate bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pepper.
- Add the flour mix to the turnip mix, combine well. Then add to a 2L casserole dish.
- In a saucepan, melt the 2 tbsp butter and add bread crumbs. Cook for about 1 minute.
- Then sprinkle the bread crumb mix on top of the turnip mix.
- Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes, until brown and hot.
- You can make this dish a day ahead of time! That’s what I did for Thanksgiving. Just reheat in the microwave, or oven before serving.
