Kevin's Mashed Turnips


3 large yellow turnips
1/2 cup margarine/butter
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tbsp nutmeg


Peel turnips and dice (very hard to cut - have patience). Place in large pot cover with cold water and salt and boil until tender. Drain and mash. Add other ingredients.

This dish can be served immediately or put into a greased casserole dish and heated later.

Note: I would make this ahead of time and heat when ready to serve in the microwave or oven.
Prep time: 45 minutes

Serves 6-8 people
