Mashed potatoes and turnips, or 'clapshot', is a Scottish side dish which is the traditional accompaniment to haggis, lamb or game.
I like this, but my husband thought it was bland. I was afraid he would, so I boiled the veggies in diluted chicken stock for a little extra flavor, but I guess it wasn't enough. I will make it again, though I'll have to find a way to spice it up for him I guess. I thought it was a good variation of regular old mashed potatoes. - 24 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this for my husband who is of Scottish heritage, and he loved it! It was delicious and a nice way to spruce up plain old mashed potatoes. I did add crumbled bacon as suggested in another recipe, but it would be delicious without. A definite keeper! - 04 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
A very nice combo of turnip and potatoes. I'm not a turnip fan, but this was pretty good. Even my father, who never eats turnip, had a small second helping! Thanks for the recipe - next time I'll try adding the crumbled bacon - 07 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
