Turnip Home Fries

I love how easy it is to eat veggies in the morning – whether I toss shredded carrots or zucchini into pancakes, sautee onions and kale and add them to omelets or quiche, or throw together a simple “home fry” recipe like this one, my kids end up getting a vegetable component to their meal and I get the peace of mind knowing they are eating delicious food that is good for them!

Turnip Home Fries


2 turnips, peeled and cut into small squares

3 tablespoons butter

salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Melt butter and toss with turnip squares until evenly coated.  (I like the convenience of doing this in a ziptop bag.)  Spread onto a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Bake on top rack for 25-30 minutes, turning once.  When turnips are done, they should be slightly browned.

Serve as a side with your favorite breakfast foods.  We had ours this morning with bacon and scrambled eggs with green chiles!
