    I have a recipe for Turnip-Bacon Puff.
    you bake it in a 2qt. souffle dish, or a cassorle dish would work. let me know if you want the recipe. I'll post it .
    The challenge seems interesting.

    I have a Mrs. Beeton's recipe book (cookbook dated to the 1860s). I can see what recipes she lists for turnips if you are interested.

    This sounds much like a recipe I have for a squash puff. Hmmmm wonder if I can substitute turnip in that recipe?!?!?!

    Here is a turnip recipe that has been a hit at our house. Even my 85 year old dad, who never ate turnips - likes it!
    I cook and mash my turnips as I always have.
    Then I spread half of them into the bottom of a casserole
    Next I layer sliced MacIntosh apples over turnips.
    Then spread the remaining half of the turnip on top.
    Next I make a Crumble Topping
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    3 tbsp. flour
    3 tbsp. butter
    Mix those together and sprinkle around the outside ring of your casserole, letting the turnip peek through in the middle.
    Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes.
    Delicious - Enjoy!

    We just have it diced and steamed not mashed. Now several of my grans tasted them before cooking and they love it raw :D

    asiago cheese? I don't think I am familiar with this. Where can I find asiago chees? Does it have another name? All the Turnip
    recipes sound good. Turnips have purple tops.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    I buy asiago cheese at the supermarket. It's not quite so hard as parmesan, but harder than cheddar and has kind of a nutty flavour. You can probably substitute parmesan or grana pardano. If there is an ethnic grocer around, or specialty shop, asiago cheese originated in Italy.
    Time to go do some cooking!!

    I like to peel them, slice them thin -- like maybe 1/4" -- refrigerate them & use as a crudite & dip them in some kind of sour cream dip -- maybe onion dip.

    Ok, I am going to try all 3 of these recipes posted. I have not eaten a Turnip in years. I LOVE Parsnips and Rutabaga's, and put them in my stews all the time during the winter. But Turnips. I am going to try the first dish for Thanksgiving. Thanks gals, I will let you know how we liked it. I'm a North Dakota gal, and we did have turnips, I just didn't eat them as a kid, like the parsnips and rutabaga's, that is a LEARNED taste. Parnsips to me are just an overgrown carrot and I really love root vegetables.

    My DBiL, who loves rutabagas, once tried to make rutabaga pancakes, substituting grated rutabaga in a potato pancake recipe. It was not a hit! ;)
    I like rutabaga but we don't grow them in our garden because DH doesn't like them and besides they're very susceptible to root maggots. Never eaten a cooked turnip, just raw. Both ruties and turnips are good raw. Parsnips are yummie cooked with a beef potroast along with onions, potatoes and carrots.

    Also living in California, I have to admit that we don't eat them in this house. (but, maybe it's something we ought to try---can never get enough veggies....)
