Potatoes and Turnips Lyonnaise

This recipe goes well with just about any protein, and with the help of a mandolin is a stress free and delicious affair.  With the aid of some simple and earthy ingredients, this recipe may be for a weeknight meal, or elevated to a more formal affair, just from the plating alone.  A friend of the family had a surplus of turnips, which she shared with us and this is one of the many I developed as a result. Belonging to the Family Cruciferae, including cauliflower, broccoli, collards and kale, also Brussels Sprouts, turnips are rich in calcium, magnesium and potassium.  They also provide a substantial amount of our daily allowances of vitamins A, C and K.  They blend in well with potatoes, and with thinly sliced onions in tow, this recipe is a wonderful collection of bulbous goodness!
Recipe:
3 turnips, peeled, thinly sliced, about 3 cups
2 potatoes, such as Russet, peeled,  thinly sliced, about 2 cups
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
2 tbsp. butter, plus 1 tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, pressed or finely minced
Toss sliced veggies together as evenly as possible in a large bowl.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large oven safe saute pan over medium high heat, melt butter and olive oil together.
Once butter is melted and hot, carefully add veggies and garlic.
Shake pan constantly as veggies cook and SPST.
Cook for several more minutes , shaking pan and tossing careful not to break up veggies too much.
Place tight fitting lid over pan, and cook for about 5 more minutes.
Remove lid and transfer to oven, baking until browning is evident on top, about 15 minutes.
Serves 6 to 8.  Let stand for several minutes before cutting or plating.
I served this recipe with simple Salt and Pepper Bone In Chops.
