  • Place turnip into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and transfer to a bowl.

  • Mash turnip, 2 tablespoons butter, salt, and pepper together until smooth.

  • Toss apples with 2 tablespoons brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.

  • Spread half the turnip mixture into the prepared casserole dish; top with half the apples. Repeat with remaining turnip mixture and apple mixture.

  • Mix flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons softened butter by hand in a bowl until mixture is an evenly coarse meal-texture; sprinkle over casserole.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and bubbling, about 1 hour.

We really enjoyed this! I only gave it 4 stars bc I did change it a bit. I added 3 carrots (about half a cup) which definitely improved the flavour & texture. My turnip yielded about 6 cups and the ratio between turnip, carrot & apple was well received by all, ages 1-51! Read More

Instead of using a turnip I wonder if you meant to use a rutabaga? I used 1/2 a rutabaga and 3 small turnips. They went successfully with the apples. I didn't use the topping I'm not that fond of that much sweetness for my vegetables. It is what the recipe says a turnip/apple dish! Read More

I added carrots and omitted the topping. I served it with homemade turkey sausage patties which had apples too. Everyone loved it. Read More

This was a great side dish for turkey. Next time I would add a pinch of nutmeg too. Read More
