Turnip and Potato Gratin

This is an easy recipe to toss in the oven to bake while you prepare the rest of your meal. Depending on the other flavors in the meal, consider layering in a handful of chopped fresh herbs. Use whatever cheese strikes your fancy!


3 medium potatoes, thinly sliced

3 medium turnips, thinly sliced

1 onion, thinly sliced

1-2 tablespoons butter, melted

¾ cup heavy cream

¼ cup bread crumbs

¼-1 cup crumbled or shredded cheese

Salt and Pepper

Dill or other fresh herbs, if desired


Saute onions in a small amount of oil until lightly browned. Add butter and vegetables and cook for about 5 minutes. In a small casserole dish or individual ramekins, spread layers of veggie mixture, drizzling each layer with cream and sprinkling with a bit of salt and pepper. Top with bread crumbs and cheese, cover with foil, and bake in a 375 degree oven for about 40 minutes, until cooked through. Remove foil and cook about 10 more minutes until top is golden brown.
