Turnip Au Gratin wwwpp=4
I am always looking for ways to satisfy, that comfort food feeling. Last week when I was posting a few recipes, a good friend of mine Sherri Busk, sent me this one. I was kinda a doubting Thomas..Turnips, hey my kids will turn up their noses and I will be stuck with all kinds of leftovers.
I made this tonight, and it was very easy. It was greatly accepted. Although they now think it is a game to figure out what the dishes are made of besides the obvious.
I did this on the Weight Watcher Recipe Maker and came up with 4 points. Which wasn't too bad. We had my 7 pt Meatloaf (which was a batch I made extra last week) (quick, quick) and greenbeans. Leaving a filling full meal for 11 points. That is a good meal.
Like I have said before this also doesn't have to be a ww meal. You could use this just to get some fiber and vitamins into your diet. The easy way....
I must also say, I followed her recipe as well as I could. I was missing a few things so I used what I had. Even thinking about sneaking in some spinach next time..funny...I just love that stuff.
Turnip Au Gratin
6 medium turnips (peeled and sliced thin, I used my mandoline, but be ever soooo careful)
1 jar of Cheesy Light Parmesan Alfredo
1 can of mushrooms (drained)
1/2 stick of margarine
4 servings of Kraft Shredded Low fat cheese
Peel and slice thin the turnips. Parboil them for about 5 to 6 minutes.
Lay a thin layer (I put one side by side)
I melted the butter, and put the alfredo and the mushrooms into a bowl altogether.
Lay a thin layer of the butter, alfredo and mushroom mix.
Next a sprinkle of cheese.
Lay another layer of turnip, I got three thin layers with a bit of sauce on top and a bit of cheese.
Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. Check for tenderness.
I let it cool about 15 minutes before serving.
It was very good. I will make this a go to side.
I am really enjoying finding new vegetables that I have never even thought to try.
So get out there do something new.
Thanks Sherri, Loved the recipe.
