Turnip Au Gratin⁣



There is something about holidays that make everyone miss potatoes and this recipe really fits the bill for that potato craving! This recipe is only 6 ingredients and requires almost no prep! You will question why you haven’t tried turnips before now!⁣

I did a little bit of digging. I was really curious what Au Gratin means in the cooking community. What I found was, it just means it is covered in cheese. I would like everything au gratin for the rest of forever PLEASE.

-3-4 turnips, sliced into medallions⁣
-1.5 cups of shredded cheese. I used 1 cup of Monterey jack and a half cup of cheddar⁣
– 1 tps salt⁣
– 1 tsp garlic powder⁣
– ½ tsp pepper⁣
-1 cup heavy cream⁣
-Parsley, optional⁣

-Wash and dry your turnips. Cut the tips and the root off. Slice into thin medallions.⁣
-Butter a baking dish.

-Mix together garlic powder, salt, and pepper and set aside. In another bowl, combine cheeses⁣
-Add a layer of turnips.

-Sprinkle turnips with seasoning mixture then a layer of cheese mixture. Do these layers until your dish is almost full.

-Sprinkle with cheese and add 1 cup of heavy cream over the top.⁣
-Cover in foil and bake at 350 for 50 minutes.

-Then remove the foil and bake for another 20 minutes or so. I turn on the broiler for 5 minutes right at the end for the pretty crust on top.⁣
