As requested here is the Finnish Turnip Casserole. You can use Turnips or Rutabagas. When we were children my mother started adding brown sugar to the beaten eggs, if you like, add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar to the beaten eggs before adding to the turnip mixture. It works well to halve or double the recipe, depending on how many people you are serving. -Leslie. Cook the turnips until soft (about 20 minutes) in salted water to cover. Drain and mash. Soak the bread crumbs in the cream and stir in nutmeg, salt and beaten eggs. Combine with the mashed turnips. Add the brown sugar (if using) to the beaten eggs before adding to turnips. Turn into a buttered casserole dish, dot the top with the butter, and bake in a moderate oven (350 F.) for 1 hour or until lightly browned on top. Serves 6-8.
