I decided to try something new this year. I made my Turnip like I make my scalloped potatoes. I topped it with a parmesan bread crumb mixture. It taste awesome. I hope you all enjoy it. My husband liked it, and he doesn't usually care for turnip. I know this will be something that most people would like. I know That I will be making my Turnip this way from now on. Enjoy all. Happy Holiday's!
