Cheesy Scalloped Turnips with Onions
sliced into paper thin rings
shredded, or shredded Jack cheese
shredded cheddar cheese,
Peel and clean turnips. Slice into thin slices and boil for 3 minutes in water with 3 Tbsp cream added. Set aside.
Spray a 2 quart casserole with cooking spray and set aside. Dice bacon and fry until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon, leaving drippings in pan. Add butter, nutmeg and onions. Saute onions over low heat until nicely browned. Add the bacon back in. In a microwave safe cup, melt butter and then add 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1 cup shredded cheese. Stir to melt, heating for 20 second intervals as needed.
Place 1/4 of the turnips in the bottom of the casserole. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, followed by 1/4 the onion mix and 1/4 the cheese sauce. Repeat layers then top with additional cheese. Cover well and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until top browns and it's all bubbly and tender.
Preheat oven to 350F.
