What's in it


4 whole Turnips
3 cloves (to 4 Cloves) Garlic
2 cups Gruyere Cheese
4 Tablespoons (to 6 Tablespoons) Butter
Chicken Broth
Heavy Cream
Salt And Pepper, to taste
Fresh Herbs, to taste

How to cook it


  • Preheat the oven to 375º.
  • Start by peeling and thinly slicing the turnips and mincing the cloves of garlic. Grate about 2 cups of Gruyere cheese.
  • In a large oven-proof skillet, melt 2-3 tablespoons of butter over medium-low heat. Place a single layer of turnips on top of the butter.
  • Next, sprinkle a little of the garlic on top, then – and this is purely optional and really not all that necessary – add a couple of tablespoons of butter.
  • Next drizzle a healthy splash of chicken broth over the turnips. Next, do the same with the cream.
  • Now add a nice layer of Gruyere – about ½ cup. Sprinkle a bit of salt, but not much as the cheese is already salty.
  • Repeat these layers twice more. Sprinkle on some freshly ground black pepper.
  • Now pop the whole thing into the over and bake for about 20 minutes or until the top is hot, brown and bubbly.
