Turnips Au Gratin

Turnip gratin **a Misty original**

2 turnips peeled and sliced very thin **I use a mandolin for mine**
1 pint heavy cream
4 oz cream cheese
16 oz shredded montery jack cheese **Use the block and not the bagged stuff. I’ve found that the pre-shredded cheese is way too greasy!**
Several slices bacon cooked and crumbled

1. Before you start cooking, line a baking sheet with paper towels and place sliced turnips on top. Salt the turnips liberally. This will draw out the bitter. After about 30 minutes, rinse and pat dry.

2. Meanwhile, combine the next 2 ingredients and stir until cream cheese is melted.
3. Add shredded cheese and bacon and stir until melted and combined.
4. Drain cooked turnips and layer in a oven safe dish. Spray bottom of dish for easy clean up.
5. Layer turnips and sauce. Make sure you end with sauce.
6. Top with more shredded cheese and bacon, cover and bake for 30 minutes. Remove cover and turn oven to broil and broil until cheese browns.

Default Sweet Potato Pie

Ingredients

3 large sweet potatoes (about 1 pound)
(or use two large cans already cooked sweet potatoes)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 single-crust unbaked pie shell
Directions

Boil sweet potatoes in skins until very tender. Drain then slit the skins with a knife and they’ll peel off very easily. Mash sweet potatoes with butter then use an electric mixer to blend well. Add sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla. Use mixer to blend again. Pour sweet potato filling into unbaked pie shell. I like to sprinkle a little more nutmeg on top. It looks pretty, and I love nutmeg. Bake at 350-degrees (mostly on the lowest oven rack) for one hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool and top slices with whipped cream.

Ooh, turnip fries, what a concept! I went to the market to get the ingredients for this and they HAD NO TURNIPS! No NEEPS! I was sad. They said they will get some next week.

I love sweet potato fries, too, btw.

Candied Carrots

I haven't made these for a while, and I never measured. But I will try to estimate:

1-2 pints carrots, sliced. Cook in saucepan on top of stove until tender.

Reduce heat.

Add:

2-4 TBSP butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 C (or a little bit more) brown sugar

Stir and simmer until sauce forms and thickens to desired consistency.

Default Classic French Carrot Salad

I love this and make it at least once a week, to last about three days. It's very fresh tasting, the dressing makes a simple salad very delicious.

1 lb carrots, peeled and grated
2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 tsp grainy mustard
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp honey
1/4 tsp salt
ground black pepper

In a large bowl put the mustard, lemon juice, honey, vegetable oil, olive oil, salt and pepper. Combine well. Add the carrots and parsley to the dressing and toss well. Taste and adjust the dressing if necessary.

This photo is from an everyday food pics post I did over a year ago.

Default Beef & Vegetable Stew

I've made this several times and it turned out quite good.

What you need is:

A crockpot (you can also put this in a pot on your stove, but it's better if you let it simmer all day long)
1 can beef or vegetable stock, and then fill crockpot about 1/2 way with water
A pound of beef, the kind cut for stews
2-3 parsnips, sliced up
2 rutabagas, peeled & chopped
1 turnip, chopped
1 medium onion, diced
1/4 cup red wine
Handful of flour to thicken the broth a bit
Optional: A handful or two of fresh mushrooms. Not everyone likes mushrooms, but I add them if I have them.

Pepper to taste
Salt to taste
1 bay leaf
Pinch or two of thyme
Pinch or two of basil
Pinch or two of parsley

Brown the beef in a frying pan and saute the onion. I prefer to saute with butter, but you can use cooking oil if you want to.

Add the ingredients to your crockpot and let cook all day so the flavors mingle.
