Wash, peel and cook white turnips in salted water to cover until tender. Remove from heat, and when cool enough to handle, scoop out a small portion of the center and discard. Fill the openings with the stuffing for which the recipe is given below.
Brown 1½ tablespoons of butter in a saucepan to use for basting. Put stuffed turnips in a baking dish. Dribble with browned butter and top with bread crumbs.
Bake in a preheated 350° oven until brown, basting now and then.
Serve with bread thins toasted and spread with fresh sweet butter.
