Turnip Fries

I think these might actually be “Rutabaga Fries”! It was husband’s job to pick up the turnips, and he said all he saw was the rutabagas, and he googled it and they were basically the same thing. In any case, these were REALLY good! My 8 year old had at least 3 helpings of them. They don’t get crispy and crunchy like potatoes do, but they have such a good flavor! Husband dipped his in ketchup, but I dipped mine in honey mustard salad dressing. Yum!

Turnip Fries
(All Recipes magazine, Sept./Oct. 2015)


3 pounds turnips
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil and lightly grease.
Peel the turnips, and cut into French fry-sized sticks, about 1/3 by 4 inches. Place into a large bowl, and toss with the vegetable oil to coat. Place the Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, paprika, onion powder in a resealable plastic bag, and shake to mix. Place the oiled turnips into the bag, and shake until evenly coated with the spices. Spread out onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven until the outside is crispy, and the inside is tender, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
