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.

    These look great! I am going to make them tonight! Question – it says to spread the butter – so I’m assuming the butter should be warm enough to spread evenly across the top of the dough?

    Yes Bethany – I just softened mine in the microwave and used my fingers to spread it.
