  • Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, pepper, and nutmeg in a bowl and stir into turnips. Transfer mixture to a baking dish.

  • Combine bread crumbs and melted butter and sprinkle on top of turnip mixture.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until light brown on top, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can prepare the turnip, butter, and egg mixture the day ahead. Store in the refrigerator and complete the casserole the next day.
