4  large  turnips, see directions
3  tablespoons  cream, drained well
2  slices  bacon
1  tablespoon  butter
1  large  onion, sliced into paper thin rings
1/2  cup  heavy cream
1  cup  Asiago Cheese, shredded, or shredded Jack cheese
1/2  cup  shredded cheddar cheese, for topping
3  tablespoons  butter
1/2  teaspoon  salt
1/4  teaspoon  pepper
1/8  teaspoon  nutmeg

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Peel and clean turnips. Slice into thin slices and boil for 3 minutes in water with 3 Tbsp cream added. Set aside.

3. 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.

4. 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.
