Ingredients
  • 6 large red new potatoes, skin on

Slice potatoes and turnips 1/4-inch thick. Cook in boiling water for 15 minutes or until fork-tender. Drain.

Turnips and potatoes go wonderful together! Here are some modifications I did: Instead of sour cream used a couple scoops of greek yogurt (really great flavor!, I only used 2-3 tbsp of butter and I used a little whole milk instead of cream. Watch out not to add too much milk or cream because the turnips are watery and you can end up with soupy mashed potatoes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I just made this recipe and it was very good. I did add 1 more small red potato and 2 very large turnips. If I make this again, I would add another small turnip. Couldn't really taste the turnip flavor. Make sure you salt the water liberally and add more salt and pepper after whipping. That enhanced the taste. I cooked the turnips and potatoes separately and just cut them in equal size chunks. I'm not good with mandolines. But they did come out really good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have used turnips off and on in my mashed potatoes since 1978.. and this one with the addition of the sour cream is yummy. Thanks, Paula. I also have used unflavored Greek Yogurt in place OF the sour cream, if I dont have the sour cream. Still gives a creaminess even though it doesnt have a distinct flavor of the sour cream. : item not reviewed by moderator and published

Well...I thought it was missing some thing so before we sat down and ate dinner me and the folks added more salt and pepper...but me and my mom are butter freaks so we thought it needed butter unfortunately my step dad wouldn't let us any-who it was absolutely scrumptious!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
