Turnip Puff

Hubby and I celebrated Thanksgiving at our house on the Friday after Thanksgiving. I didn’t want to go too overboard with the menu so I asked Hubby what the one side dish he needed on the table to make it feel like Thanksgiving. For me, it is the green bean casserole. For Hubby, it is mashed turnip. I decided to make this turnip puff instead of just heating up some frozen mashed turnip.

Hubby said these were the best turnips he had ever had (don’t let his mom find out!) The flour and eggs made the turnips more hearty and less watery. The paprika and bread crumbs on top add a nice flavor and texture as well. If you are looking for a holiday side dish, I highly recommend this one!

One other thing. You can make this ahead of time and freeze it. Then just let it defrost a few hours prior to baking it.

      You’re right. Sorry about that – it’s a typo… I have updated the recipe. It calls for a heaping 1/2 cup of cocoa.

    I believe you have forgotten to add the chocolate part of this recipe.

    Thanks so much for this recipe! It’s awesome and tastes really good. I wrapped it inside of a dark chocolate shell and they made the most perfect chocolate truffles. Everyone loved them for Christmas! Thanks again.
