Cheesy Scalloped Turnips | Keto | Low Carb | Vegetarian

Looking for a side dish for a Sunday or holiday dinner? These Cheesy Scalloped Turnips are fantastic. They are a great alternative to Scalloped Potatoes for anyone watching their carb intake. When baked in a cheesy sauce, these turnips have the same texture as potatoes. They do taste a bit different than potatoes - they have a little bite/tang if you will. I really like the taste, and it yells holiday time to me. This dish is rich, delicious, and comforting. These scalloped turnips can be paired up with a prime rib roast, ham, lamb or roast chicken. These Cheesy Scalloped Turnips are prefect for any holiday or Sunday dinner. Serve for dinner at Easter, St. Patrick's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or any special occasion. This can be made the day before and reheated.
