What a wonderful way to eat turnips! Who would have thuought that cornflakes would enhance the flavor, they seemed to take the bitterness out and leave the yumminess in! Even Mom liked them and she never eats turnips!


This was so tasty it could have been dessert. I don't think I'll ever be able to prepare turnips any other way. Even my resident "non-veggie" eater couldn't get enough!


I love this recipe, but have to give it 4 out of 5 only because of the alterations I made to the recipe (I only give 5 out of 5 if I love the recipe after making it exactly as written). I use one medium turnip and halve the remainder of the ingredients. Also, I use 5% cream instead of heavy whipping cream and only a tablespoon of brown sugar Splenda instead of regular brown sugar. Not too sweet, and not too heavy. When I made this recipe with the modifications, my parents - who are both Finn and grew up on their respective mothers' turnip "casseroles" - said that these were the best turnips they'd ever had!
