Turnip Puff

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min.


3 servings

“My family would never eat turnips until I served them this way,” says Debbie Henry from Phelpston, Ontario. This downsized version goes well with turkey, ham or roast beef. TIP: A pound of turnips yields about 2 cups chopped.


  • 3 cups cubed peeled turnips
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 egg
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • Dash ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted


  1. Place turnips in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. Drain; mash with butter. Cool slightly.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°. Beat in egg. Combine the flour, baking powder, brown sugar, salt, pepper and nutmeg; stir into turnip mixture.
  3. Spoon into a 3-cup baking dish coated with cooking spray. Toss bread crumbs and butter; sprinkle over casserole. Bake, uncovered, until heated through and a thermometer reads 160°, 30-35 minutes.

    I really did not like the way this turned out. We had to toss it. Too mushy the way they have you prepare the turnips. very little taste either; needs a lot more than they call for here. I prefer turnips sliced and baked in a casserole I’ve decided. Much better texture.
