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.

I have never made turnips before, so I thought this recipe was a great place to start. I was skeptical at first when I saw brown sugar and nutmeg on the ingredients list, but we all enjoyed it!
