Crispy Turnip 'Fries'
December 12, 2010

I ate 4 servings even though I think the recipe needs work, so I gave it 4 stars instead of 3. :) I used 1/2 cup of cheese instead of 1/3, and fresh garlic because I didn't have garlic salt, and no onion powder because I didn't have that either. All of that was fine. I also used two tbsp oil instead of one, that was a mistake, too greasy. I baked them for 20 minutes at 425 and cranked up the oven to 450 and watched them for another couple minutes - took them out when the edges on two or three started to burn. Whoever said the cheese was the only thing crispy about these... I had that experience also. #1 change these need is something to crisp them up on the outside. I didn't have to turn them, although maybe that would have helped. Cutting them thinner (more like shoestrings than pub fries) might have helped too - the thinner ones seemed a bit crisper. The flavor was good though. They're just a little sweet, which is nice. No, they don't taste just like potato fries. Soy milk doesn't taste just like dairy milk, and veggie burgers don't taste just like beef burgers. I like these things for what they are, not how much they do or don't taste like something else, but to each their own. If you're looking for potato fries, try potatoes; but if you don't mind something a little different, give these a go.
