What is your favorite recipe for Rutabagas?

I've never eaten a Rutabaga. In all the pot-luck dinners I've been to, I've never seen them offered. I've never seen them on any menu at any restaurant.

I picked one, medium sized Rutabaga up and would like to try it.

If you have a favorite way to cook Rutabagas, I'd love to see it.

Yum. Used to be a turkey day staple.

Peel, cut in chunks and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook till tender.

Drain and mash with lots of butter and a bit of sugar, some s&p.

Dice into 1/4" pieces. Saute in a small amount of butter, black pepper, thyme and sage until tender. Serve over a mix of brown and wild rice. Add crumbled breakfast sausage if desired.

Second favorite, dice and boil until tender. Drain. Mash with butter, a little brown sugar and a dash of allspice. Cover and let sit for ten minutes to let the flavors blend. Serve along side roasted turkey, roasted chicken, or roasted cornish game hen and dinner rolls.

I'm with Dawgluver, still is a turkey day staple in my house but, I leave out the sugar.

They have a unique flavor and they are low in calories and carbs.

The worst part is peeling the waxed skin.

Rutabega/turnip. I never cared for either one. I would encourage you to go for butternut squash.

What's funny for me is I could never develop a liking for squash, but love turnips and rutabegas!

Peel, cut into chunks, boil with a piece of side meat or ham hock. When tender, drain and serve. Here at Casa de Hoot, I am the only one who likes rutabagas. No sugar, please. Maybe a little salt and pepper.

Use them anywhere you would use a turnip. They impart a nice yellow color and a buttery flavor compared to a turnip.
Mashed with a bit of butter and buttermilk, s/p. No sweetener. You can mix them 50/50 with potatoes if you find the rutabaga flavor too strong on its own.
Use them in pasties. Very good.
Even as a sub for potatoes in your favorite hash recipe.

They are also good in chunks in a soup or stew.
