These turned out pretty good, and were surprisingly easy to make. Except for cutting up the rutabaga--there's got to be a trick that makes it easier! If I make them again, I think I'll add a little more spice and butter, but overall they taste great. I now have several in the freezer for when I get a pasty craving, I won't have to find someone to drive to the UP for me to get a fix!

Oh wow, was this tasty! I must admit, I was a little skeptical when I first came across this recipe. I wasn't sure how all those flavors would go together, but I loved it! Yes, it's probably not the healthiest thing in the world (although don't the broccoli and garlic cancel out the bacon?) but as they say, fat is flavor! YUM!! P.S. I had a pinot noir with mine, complemented the dish well I thought.
