Peel the turnips and boil them in salted water until soft. Then cut off their tops and carve out the insides.
Stir the mixture well and distribute it into the turnips. Arrange the stuffed vegetables in a buttered baking dish, add melted butter, cover with the cut off turnip tops and bake for about 40 minutes in a moderate oven, while also adding a little hot water from time to time.
Serve with potato salad and pickles.
