Cook turnips in boiling, salted water to cover; when just tender, drain and set aside. Saute onion, green pepper and celery in butter until tender, sprinkle with flour and cook 1 or 2 minutes. Add milk and stir until blended and thickened. Stir in cheese, salt and pepper. Combine cheese sauce with turnips, put in baking dish-top with crumbs. Broil until crumbs brown.
