Reviews for Turnip Bake
"This was my first time making turnips, although I had eaten them a few times and liked them. My husband was skeptical but quickly discovered this was delicious. I followed the recipe, no changes, and I'll definitely make this again!"
"My husband and I both really liked this. I was out of bread crumbs so I substituted panko and really liked that change. Not sure about the nutmeg or brown sugar - I prefer my turnips a little more on the savory than sweet side. We would definitely have this again."
"This is good, it is the best recipe for turnips I have made so far. Nontheless, this is only the third time I have made turnips. The first time it was not so good made with cabbage. This time everyone liked it and they had seconds."
