Ingredients

  • 2 turnips, peeled and diced

  • 1 cup applesauce

  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 4 teaspoons brown sugar

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 ¾ cups soft bread crumbs, divided

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart casserole.

  2. Bring a pot of water to a boil and add turnips. Reduce heat to low, and simmer turnips until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.

  3. Transfer turnips to a large bowl and mash with applesauce, 6 tablespoons softened butter, brown sugar, eggs, salt, black pepper, and half the bread crumbs. Spoon turnip mixture into the prepared casserole dish, and sprinkle with remaining half of bread crumbs. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons melted butter.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

To prepare turnips in microwave, wrap each turnip in a paper towel. Cook in microwave oven on high for 8 minutes. Let turnips cool for 8 minutes. Cut tops and bottoms from turnips, peel, and dice.

Casserole can be removed from oven and refrigerated until 1 hour before serving time. To reheat, bake in a 350-degree F (175-degree C) oven until heated through, about 1 hour.
