  • 3 to 4 medium sized turnips
  • 2 slices turkey bacon, cooked crisp and chopped into small pieces
  • 1 to 4 cloves of garlic, minced (according to taste)
  • 1/4 cup onions, diced, optional

How to make it:
  1. Fill 2 quart saucepan with water and bring to a boil.
  2. Peel turnips and cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
  3. Add turnips to boiling water and cook until soft (20 to 30 minutes).
  4. While turnips are cooking, prepare turkey bacon: put a little olive oil or ghee in frying pan and cook turkey bacon (which has little fat of its own) over medium-low heat, sprinkling minced garlic and onions around sides of pan.
  5. When bacon is crisp, turn off heat and remove from pan (leaving garlic).
  6. Cut into small pieces.
  7. When turnips are soft, remove from heat and drain.
  8. Mash turnips with ghee/butter and milk (I use electric mixer).
  9. Return frying pan to medium-low heat and add turkey bacon.
  10. Add a very small amount of additional olive oil if pan is dry.
  11. Add mashed turnips to pan and stir until mixed with bacon and garlic.
  12. Serves 2 to 3 people as side dish.
