ISO Looking for an old Southern Living Christmas Book Turnip Casserole recipe

A cousin of mine served a turnip casserole a long time ago, and she said, I remember, it had a little cream of wheat in it as a thickener.  It was great! 

 

I think it came out of some old Southern Living recipe book or some similiar cookbook I think.  She doesn't have it any more, and I've looked online and haven't seen it.  Anyone out there familiar with it?  It was from quite some time ago. . . 

 

I had someone here supply one close to it once, but it was different.  This was really good!  Imagine!  GOOD turnips!  LOL!!!

I am almost certain that is it!  It was really so good and I am not a big fan of turnips!  

 

Where on earth did you find this Sunshine45?  I've googled it so many times but never came  up with the cream of wheat.  The ones I've seen didn't have that.  

 

I can't wait to try it now!  Gotta go buy turnips!

 

Woman Wink  Woman LOL

it was not that easy to find, but i kept digging. LOL

i had never heard of it before.

i was going to go through some of my old southern living magazines, but finally found it. i have a lot of the older southern living magazines because we have "family favorites" from them that we still make today.

@sunshine45  Well you made me happy today!  What a perfect fall and winter side dish!  It's different, it's easy, and it's good!  I have had some made with breadcrumbs, but I always thought this was the best!

 

MANY thanks again!  My family has a good many SL treasured recipes too.  They are THE best!

If only my dear sweet Mom was still alive.  She loved turnips.  I will have to try this in her honor.  That's the only reason I take the magazine!
