Turnip Greens with Bacon

I love turnips but they are kind of a pain to grow with their huge leafy greens. I had never considered cooking up the greens though but they are pretty delicious. We decided to keep it simple and saute them up with some onions and bacon similar to spinach. The results were amazing! Now we don’t have t waste all those tops to our turnips! Makes 4 servings
