We've got turnip greens down, but are always looking for recipe ideas for the roots. This Turnip Casserole calls for grated cheddar or Asiago, both of which are now available from CCFM vendor Ryals Goat Dairy.
Place turnips in a pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until just tender; drain and set aside.
Preheat oven to broil. Heat butter in a sauté pan. Add onion, green pepper, and celery; sauté until tender. Sprinkle with flour and stir to blend; cook 1 or 2 minutes. Add milk; cook and stir until mixture thickens. Stir in cheese, salt, and pepper; cook and stir until sauce is smooth. Combine turnips and cheese sauce in a baking dish. Top with crumbs. Broil until crumbs are browned.
