Approximately 4 servings
1 pound ground breakfast sausage or other ground meat
3 turnips, peeled and grated (a food processor works well for this)(I hand grated then squeezed the excess water out.)
4 eggs, beaten
3 scallions, chopped
Sauté sausage, breaking it up into small pieces with a spoon or spatula, until almost cooked through.
Mix the sausage with the rest of the ingredients.
Spoon into a 8×8 baking pan.
When ready to cook, heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake covered for 45 minutes then uncover the pan and bake for 25 minutes more. Let cool 15-20 minutes so the casserole sets before cutting into it.
I calculated the nutrition info, and I now wish I could have found a better sausage to use because the sausage in this makes one serving about 500 calories. If I can find some chicken sausage or something that would probably cut down on the calories.
I wasn't sure what to expect with this since I have never had turnips before. It looked pretty burnt when I took it out of the oven, but it tasted really good! I was surprised! It was a little spicy, I think the turnips are spicy maybe? I don't really know. But it was really good and the reviews said it reheats really well, so we'll see tomorrow if it tastes as good as it did today.
