I had them last week...peeled them, cut into thin fries (cook better)...added 2 tsp EVOO to fry pan, got it hot and threw the turnips in. Added sea salt, pepper, and mrs dash salt-free spicy herb blend...some garlic and onion powder and stir to mix around the herbs....fried till tender but firm centers and dumped on a paper towel. Then the happy-times began!

Just awesome!
Cheers
Jake

I use rutabega more than turnip, but in the same recipes. Simply because I found the rutabega to have a milder flavor and really works well in dishes that would normally have potatoes.
I slice them like fries, then dice them in to smaller pieces. Start them in a skillet, then once they have started softening I add whatever meat I am using that night. Then, I vary what seasonings I use, depending on my mood. My favorite right now is rutabega, ground beef, and curry powder. Yum!!
This would all work with a turnip also, but the turnip will probably add a little different flavor to your dish.

On the rutabega or turnip fries...I have seen two recipes, same ingredients but one says bake at 425 the other says to cook them in a frying pan...has anyone tried both ways and have a preference? The idea of turning the oven on to 425 seems counterproductive to the AC I have running hmm, what to do, though I have plenty where I could cook 1/2 & 1/2 and give you my opinion...that is probably what I will do.

I think the rutabaga has more carbs, like twice the calories, and more sugars in it then the turnip...

grated and made into hash brown patties!!! a favorite breakfast for supper option...over easy, poached or hard boiled eggs, turnip hash browns, a piece of turkey bacon and come coffee!!

i also grate turnips and stuff in my homemade cabbage rolls with ground turkey or beef instead to replace the rice!! can also do this with rutabagas in stuffed bell peppers!!
