Donna's Turnip Green Casserole

Melanie B


My MIL has made this for the last 20 years I've know her. It is really good and is usually only fixed for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Use a good quality brand of turnip greens. Store brands often have lots of hard stems.

NOTE: 11/15/12
I have learned that Bush's no longer makes canned greens. I would recommend using frozen greens since Glory brand is sweetened with sugar. I was also told that Walmart sells plain canned greens, but just make sure to remove any excessive stems.

Note 11/15/12 I made this for a work luncheon. It fits in a 8x8 or 9x9 square baking pan. My MIL must have made a doube batch because her dish was much larger.
