Turnips? Oh Yes!

A favorite casserole over fall and winter here is turnip casserole. Before you wrinkle your nose at turnips, they are absolutely delicious and soulful this way! Basically, a scalloped version.

Turnip Casserole
Cube a potato pan full of turnips, cook until tender and drain.
You will also need 1-2 C mild or medium cheddar cheese, sliced or shredded, italian bread crumbs, and a few tbs of butter aside.

White Sauce
1/4 C butter
1/4 C flour
2 1/2 C Milk
1 tsp salt

Melt butter on low heat, stir in flour makeing a rue and add milk slowly, stirring.

In a casserole dish, layer turnips, cover with mixture and shake to be covered. Add pats of butter and grated cheese or cheese slices on top and then sprinkle with italian bread crumbs. Bake @ 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
