Smashed Turnips and Red Skin Potatoes
This is an easy and tasty side dish.
It gives regular smashed or mashed potatoes a different flair.
3-4 Small Turnips
3-4 Small Red Skin potatoes or any potato will work I like the red skins for color
4 Tablespoons of Butter (divided)
1/3 cup warm milk or cream
1 14 oz can chicken broth
Wash potatoes; wash and trim turnips; cut into medium size chunks. Place in a pot with the chicken broth, half the butter, salt and enough water to just cover the vegetables.
Bring to a boil; reduce heat and cook till tender, a knife should slide through easily. Drain and return to pan; add the milk or cream (adjust more or less if needed) and smash with a potatoes masher till creamy, leaving a few lumps.
Salt and pepper to taste
Great with Bacon Bits as a garnish
