Bea's notes for this recipe:
My mom submitted this recipe in her church cookbook. She was my mom through blood but my friend by choice. She was one precious woman and I miss her every single day!

NOTE: see tip at bottom of recipe on how to cut turnips.
Make it Your Way...

Preheat oven to 350. Combine turnips, butter, eggs, salt, sugar and *1 cup bread crumbs.
Spoon into oiled casserole dish then top with *remaining 1/4 cup of bread crumbs.
Bake at 350 for approximately 30 minutes or until golden brown.
TIPS ON HOW TO CUT TURNIPS: First, cut ends off turnip. Second, stand turnip on one of cut ends & cut turnip in half. Third, lay on flat end & cut each half into slices, the size of home fries. Fourth, cut slices in half. Fifth, peel slices. I cut rutabeggas this way, too.

I love turnips, too, Robin. I actually cooked rudageggas (sp) last night and they were soooo good! I love root veggies...all of them!
