What a wonderful way to eat turnips! Who would have thuought that cornflakes would enhance the flavor they seemed to take the bitterness out and leave the yumminess in! Even Mom liked them and she never eats turnips! Read More

I found this dish to be lacking character. To start with it is too sweet. If you remove the brown sugar you basically have a turnip omlette with some breadcrumbs thrown in. It is very rich and very unhealthy and if I'm going to eat something like that I want it to taste better than this! It needs some spices (nutmeg and ginger maybe?) and one review suggested mashing the turnips. Maybe that would help too. If I were to make this again I might try those modifications but I probably won't make it again. Read More

This was so tasty it could have been dessert. I don't think I'll ever be able to prepare turnips any other way. Even my resident "non-veggie" eater couldn't get enough! Read More

I love this recipe but have to give it 4 out of 5 only because of the alterations I made to the recipe (I only give 5 out of 5 if I love the recipe after making it exactly as written). I use one medium turnip and halve the remainder of the ingredients. Also I use 5% cream instead of heavy whipping cream and only a tablespoon of brown sugar Splenda instead of regular brown sugar. Not too sweet and not too heavy. When I made this recipe with the modifications my parents - who are both Finn and grew up on their respective mothers' turnip "casseroles" - said that these were the best turnips they'd ever had!

This recipe overall was pretty good. It was a little too soggy for my taste but it had a nice not-too-sweet flavor. The cornflakes helped. Read More

Personally I enjoyed this dish. My family was iffy. I will make this again---without changes the consistancy was fine. They'll learn to love turnips I already do! Read More

It would have helped if the directions had stated to mash the turnips perhaps it could be edited to include that in the directions. Otherwise very good and will make it again. We raise our own and always have plenty. Read More

I am not real familiar with turnips but couldn't resist the beautiful white and purple vegatables I found in the market. This looked like a good recipe so I forged ahead. Every step is really easy and I learned that boiling turnips takes much less time than potatoes. I have only made this recipe once so have not had the chance to try variations. As written however it is delicious. It impressed my guest who is a gourmand. I did not have corn flakes so crunched up corn chex which worked perfectly. My advice is have your guests hang out in the kitchen. When it comes out of the oven it is so beautifully tall and golden! I agree with others who said it could double as a dessert. Read More
