I never liked eating turnips. Each year, I tried to find a way to fix them that I could eat and serve to my family. Finally, this year, I succeeded. With our membership in Seton Harvest, this year I tried roasting vegetables more and discovered my family liked eating vegetables more too. Another reason I like oven roasting them is that it is faster.
So this fall….we tackled the turnip. I was pleasantly surprised that they were the best tasting turnips I had ever tried. Purists won’t like the whole recipe, but my teen-aged son and husband do.
- 3-4 sliced turnips
- 1 sliced onion
- Steak seasoning (with garlic and pepper or whatever your favorite herb mix is)
- 2 Tablespoons Olive oil
- 1 Tablespoon bacon grease (ok – so this isn’t purist. However, it adds great flavor.)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray a metallic pan (it caramelizes better). Put the turnips and onions into a bag or bowl. Stir or pour in the oil and turn until they are completely coated. Layer the turnips and onions in the pan.
Sprinkle spices. Bake the turnips about 10 minutes and then turn them. Continue baking them until the turnips are tender and are starting to brown.
Serve while warm.
