Creamy Turnip Au Gratin


4 large turnips, peeled and thinly sliced

1 1/2 cups heavy cream

1 1/2 cups shredded Gruyère cheese

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves

Salt and black pepper, to taste

2 tablespoons butter, for greasing the baking dish

Fresh thyme sprigs for garnish (optional)


Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a baking dish with butter and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the heavy cream, minced garlic, fresh thyme leaves, half of the Gruyère cheese, and half of the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Mix well.

Layer half of the sliced turnips in the prepared baking dish, slightly overlapping them. Pour half of the cream mixture over the turnips.

Add another layer of turnips on top and pour the remaining cream mixture evenly over them.

Sprinkle the remaining Gruyère and Parmesan cheese over the top.

Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.

Remove the foil and bake for an additional 30-40 minutes or until the turnips are tender and the top is golden and bubbly.

Garnish with fresh thyme sprigs if desired. Let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
