I never thought that a rutabaga recipe would become a favorite among my family, but after making it once it has made many appearances on our dinner table.

Amazing. I microwaved the rutabaga probably for 6 minutes and used a parmesan/mozarella grated cheese mix. I also skipped the egg since we were out but it worked out fine! I'm holding myself back from licking the skillet. Reminds me of cauliflower in a cheese sauce but better. Read More

Even my husband liked it!! I mashed it with the beaters though. It tasted like cheesy cauliflower soup. I used 2% milk instead of whipping cream. Much better than I expected! Read More

First time eating rutabaga and it was fantastic! Never knew how good this vegetable was! The sauce is pretty rich I didn't need half of it on my plate alone LOL. I thought it had a good flavor profile and my wife ate her entire half albeit stuffed! Read More
