Turnip Mashed Potatoes

Turnip Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients

  • 6 large red new potatoes, skin on
  • 2 large turnips, peeled
  • 1/2 cup cream, heated
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Slice potatoes and turnips 1/4-inch thick. Cook in boiling water for 15 minutes or until fork-tender. Drain. Whip unpeeled cooked potatoes and turnips with electric mixer, mixing until moderately smooth (don't overbeat them; a few lumps are nice). Add hot cream, butter, and sour cream. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Whip again until blended. Adjust thickness by adding more cream, if desired.
