1 cup heavy cream
1 clove smashed garlic
1 bay leaf
1 bunch thyme
1 stick butter
1 lb. turnips
½ lb. mushrooms thinly sliced
1 cup Parmesan Cheese

Butter the bottom of a Cast Iron Pan or oven-safe, deep, baking dish and sprinkle with enough parmesan to lightly dust.

Bake covered in oven for 40 minutes. Remove foil, sprinkle with remaining parmesan, and bake for 20 more minutes until fork tender. Salt and pepper to taste.
