Pan Fried Turnips and Potatoes

My husband is from Minnesota and told me he had never tried turnips. I am very much a southern girl and grew up with turnips. I always had them in stew and that’s pretty much it. I decided to take a turnip and turn it into something I thought he would like. I know him well enough to know he wasn’t going to like turnips, and I was right. I made this recipe because it’s a combination of both turnips and potatoes I wanted to break him in easy. It turned out great, but it was very evident when you had a turnip in your mouth because they have a much stronger flavor than potatoes. If you like turnips I have no doubt you will like this recipe. 

  1. Cook cubed potatoes and turnips in boiling salted water until fork tender; drain well.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the chopped onion and garlic and saute for about 3 – 4 minutes.
  3. To the skillet, add the cooked drained potato and turnip cubes.
  4. Add the salt and pepper.
  5. Continue to cook and stir until potatoes and turnips are lightly browned (or browned to your liking), adjusting heat as necessary.
  6. When done, sprinkle with the parsley and serve.
