Reviews for Scalloped Turnips
"Free veggies at church last Sunday. There was mostly turnips left, so I took some home. It's my first time cooking and eating turnips. This recipe was quite tasty. I used cheddar cheese and I added a bit more salt and added pepper. A great way to eat healthy vegetables. Thank you for sharing!"

"This is a really good recipe, making an often-maligned vegetable appealing even to unaccustomed palates."
