My Favorite Fall Recipe

By Evelyn McKnight

Jodie here, this week our guest blogger is Evelyn McKnight. She is the beloved wife of our beloved Bill McKnight, a wonderful counselor at IBC.

Turnip Casserole is my favorite fall recipe.  Early in our marriage, I asked my husband what his favorite Thanksgiving dish was.  He said it was a casserole that his aunt used to make when he was a child.  He didn’t know what was in it, but remembered that it did have turnips.  I Thought to myself, “no one likes turnips.”  This is what I came up with and it is our favorite.  I have served it every Thanksgiving for years.

5-6 turnips
16oz. Jimmy Dean pork sausage
1 sleeve Ritz crackers
1 1/2 sticks butter
1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk

Boil turnips until tender.  Cool, peel and cube. Place into casserole dish. Brown sausage, crumble and cover turnips with sausage.

To make cream sauce:
Melt 1/2 stick butter in sauce pan.  Sprinkle flour into melted butter and whisk until smooth. Slowly add milk and continue whisking until smooth.  Pour sauce over turnips and sausage.

Crush Ritz crackers and mix well with 1 stick of softened butter. Top casserole with cracker mixture, then back at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until top is browned.

Whishing you all a blessed Thanksgiving.
