I was hoping you'd post this after seeing it on the dinner thread. Now this looks like something I'd really like and I'm probably in the minority, in really appreciating lamb kidneys. I had to figure what Swede means to American's though and it turns out to be Rutabagas here. It all sounds really good to me and thanks for the recipe!
PS...I'm guessing this is "Steak and Kidney Pie" without the crust.

Didn't realise swedes had a different name across the pond.

Yes to the 'pie without a crust' comment. However for these country style dishes I prefer them a bit chunky, a bit rough and ready.
For a pie I would tend to cut the veg and meat a lot smaller.

Just personal preference, I doubt it would affect the flavour etc.


Swede.

You can call them Swedes. You can call them Rutabagas. I just call them tasty!

Actually Dawg, Rutabagas aren't white on the inside like turnips, they are golden.

They were one of my Mom's favorite dishes..Rutabagas cooked with lima beans and ham hocks. I'd pick out the lima beans. ;-) As you may guess, she was southern born.

You're right, Kay. My grandma called them all rutabegas, whether yellow or white. Recently we scored some fresh turnips from a friend, nice and white. I cooked them the same way, lots of butter, and they were delicious!

I would love to make this but I can't find kidneys anywhere around here.
