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.

    I love Cara’s stuff too, and this recipe looks great =) Spaghetti squash is so delicious…I love how you can make it more savory, or sweeten it up with the raisins and it is still delicious!

    This looks awesome! I don’t know why but I’m scared of spaghetti squash. I need to get over that and just try it. It’s bound to give me a nice healthy meal…which I can immediately ruin when I eat dessert..haha.
