Mashed Potatoes and Turnips with Herbed Cheese

August 29, 2011 | Side Dishes, Vegetables

I used to think I hated turnips. But the other day I was watching PW’s new Food Network clip where she made mashed potatoes using butter, heavy cream, and creamed cheese (can you think of a more decadent way to eat mashed potatoes?!) and I thought, hmmmmmm…what about some creamy herbed cheese like a soft whipped herb and garlic Boursin? So if you think you hate turnips too, give this a try.This is so easy I can’t even give you a recipe really. Just peel and cube up equal parts white turnips and potatoes and boil until tender. Drain and then return them to the hot pot.Add a heaping tablespoon of creamy herbed cheese per serving and mash by hand with a potato masher, making sure cheese is fully melted into all of the potatoes and turnips. No need for adding more butter or heavy cream, as this is decadent enough on it’s own. You can add some chopped fresh herbs if you like, or just add a little salt and pepper to your taste and enjoy.

Now if you’ll excuse me…there are some leftovers in the refrigerator calling my name!
